Exciting New Walking Dead Season 7 Details Revealed

The Walking Dead Season 7 hype train has officially left the station. Entertainment Weekly and AMC just released some tantalizing first images from October’s Season Premiere:

000230632-negan-0000

Although this picture of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan looks like it was taken from the Season 6 Finale, it actually reveals a LOT about the Season 7 Premiere. This snapshot CONFIRMS the episode will pick up right where the finale left off…the death of a major character at the hands of the maniacal Negan and his bat Lucille. This comes as HUGE news because many fans have speculated the death scene would be delayed for a future episode or implied in another context. NOPE. Time to stop hanging from that cliff because this episode will NOT hold back.

If you need MORE proof Executive Producer (and Director of the Season 6 Finale and Season 7 Premiere) Greg Nicotero told EW, “Yes, who was at the receiving end of Negan’s bat will be revealed in the first episode.”

BUT WAIT…there’s more! AMC also tweeted out details about the Season 7 trailer AND included this amazing key art:


Here’s the image in full:

Are we finished or are we done? NEITHER! Here’s ANOTHER exclusive sneak peek from Season 7 (courtesy of EW)…this time of Morgan looking more cleaned up than we last saw him. But where is he, exactly? Speculate below!

So there you have it! Season 7 trailer dropping July 22nd, the Negan death WILL be revealed in the Season Premiere, and we’ll all have to collectively hold each other as a society in the aftermath. Strap in.


Can’t wait for October? Quench your Walking Dead thirst by re-living the Season 6 Finale through the eyes of horrified fans:

    Nicotero doesn’t have the balls to kill Glenn.

    You’re not going to piss off your entire fan base again? You think this is surprising?

    Not sure I’m going to watch the premier. I boycotted Fear after the finale. But if I did boycott then heard that (against all sane and rational thought) you made the same ridiculous choice again, I wouldn’t come back.

    So yeah – kudos to you! (I guess?)

      Of all the shit that’s going on in the world and after all these months we’re still talking about boycotting a TV show because it didn’t make the creative decision you fancy.

      I really enjoyed this last run of fear especially when you think that it happens about the same time Shane and Lori are on the highway to Atlanta. Definitely beat first half of the farm season.

      Only thing I boycott is any AMC show that pushes talking dead back to 11/11:30. Especially when that kung fu show did it for like three weeks and started taking the clip for next week into their first commercial break. Tape, fast forward, watch 30 seconds, delete.

    Oh here we go with analyzing Negan’s positioning, shadows, reflection in the RV window, tracks in the dirt, height of Lucille’s end…
    At least The Spoiling Dead Fucks have been shut the hell up, if only for a brief moment!!! WIN!!!

    • Thurisaz July 14, 2016 at 5:02 am - Reply

      The only sufficient clue is the POV, which dwindles the suspects down to just three people.

    • Neutral-Grey July 15, 2016 at 4:32 am - Reply

      Yeah, silenced by threat of lawsuit because AMC can’t say “we fucked up” so instead they put the burner on the fans who like to figure spoilers out but now they can’t because suddenly with this ONE event, it’s unacceptable that anyone figure it out.

      It’s unfortunate that spoilers get out by people who can’t control themselves but the Spoling Dead fans are not inherently bad.

      • BASTET. July 15, 2016 at 7:35 am - Reply

        It’s a damn shame that they’re only preventing this one leak from happening & because it’s only this one, the reason for it is all too obvious! Damn shame!
        But I have to totally disagree with you on the Spoiling Dead Fucks not being inherently bad. I know we all have our passions & we feed the flames in different ways… Because I’ve wanted to have respect for fans of all levels who share a passion with me, I’ve tried to wrap my mind around the reasoning behind wanting spoilers… I’ve tried. I have yet to come across ANY LOGICAL explanation WHATSOEVER for it. In fact, the things that I’ve read that come directly from The Spoiling Dead Fucks make absolutely NO sense at all! If they love the show so damn much & they’re such big fans, how could they not want to wait until it airs so that they can feel the full force of it? How could they not have enough respect to give the cast & crew space & privacy to do what they need to do? How could knowing ahead of time do anything for anyone but make them feel big-headed? Or, primarily for the followers, if they just can’t handle the anxiety of what’s to come, why are they even watching a show like that? That’s like owning a big dog that you’re scared will bite so you keep him muzzled while you pet him. What I’ve always picked up on is that it seems their passion is all about how much more they know than anybody else & they can’t wait to make that known. You only need to read the rebuttal to the cease & desist to see that. Then of course, other sites will blast the information because they’re wanting to pull in traffic. It’s that attitude of wanting to always be two steps ahead & making sure you know it! Some people would say, “To each their own” & wonder why it would matter to me and the obvious answer is because the lack of respect & etiquette leaves me a victim of their Power Spoiler syndrome. Damn those of us that want to enjoy the show 100% as it airs! We’re supposedly not as big of a fan as they are when, the way I think about it, we are actually much larger fans than they are because we value the show in all its glory as it airs. Think about the meaning of the word “spoil”… that’s not fandom, that’s FUCKDOM, which is why they’ve earned the name I’ve given them. The Spoiling Dead FUCKS!

          Some people aren’t affected by spoilers, Bassy. Some people can enjoy a story just as much as they would have even if they know what happens because to them it’s not about the event itself, it’s how the event goes down. Figuring out the spoilers is like a puzzle. It’s something to do. Something to solve. Like a Rubik’s cube.

          And you may not like them, but I still think it’s fucked up to put the pressure on them with threat of a lawsuit. Never before did that happen except for this one moment. Almost as if AMC knows people are pretty damned unhappy, but they just can’t quite wrap their heads around delivering.

          • BASTET. July 15, 2016 at 1:21 pm

            I’ve read the idea of it being about the event going down rather than the event itself & can’t help but to think that I wouldn’t feel the same knowing what’s under the Christmas tree, no matter how awesome a gift it is. There’s still awesomeness but it’s diminished. I’m not buying it. As for solving a puzzle, the process of trying to solve is usually always fun but if there is a loss in the payout–and I just can’t see a loss not happening with a spoiler–then it detracts from the whole thing & seems to me, would be disappointing. So it seems there’s some other reason for it other than watching an expected chain of events to play out or solving a puzzle with an unrewarding solution, except if that solution means that “Hey, I know more than you do”.

            You understand it & that’s cool… you know I respect you.

            AMC is justified in preventing pre-aired content, but it should be ALL or NOTHING, not just for one detail. Selective allowance of pre-aired spoilers… this, to me, makes AMC look bad. I’m happy they’ve shut this down–a leak of who the victim is would just throw gas on the flame–but they need to go all the way with it or leave it completely alone.

          Cheers to that Bastet! And they live in The Spoling Dead Fuckdom, along with the Boycott Babies.

        Sidenote: AMC is calling it on the speculation because they don’t want these Fucks to mask the real stuff as just speculation, given the history & lengths at which they go to. These guys are not just figuring out spoilers. This is pre-aired content & there’s obviously a few of those Fucks up reeeaal close & personal, right behind the camera operator.

    I think if I see another image of that guy up there in the video clip with his mouth gaped open, I’m gonna go All Out Negan on something!

    The day of the Season 6 finale, it had crossed my mind that it would end just the way it was; but I thought, No they won’t do that. Then it did. However, I found I really wasn’t all that bothered by it. I was somewhat…relieved. I knew what was supposed to happen, but the show doesn’t exactly follow the comics, so there was no grief for the loss of a beloved character and now I’ve had time to prepare for it. I haven’t tried to find out or analyze it. I think the storyline will transition more smoothly this way.

    It will be nice to see who gets Lucilled but I am more excited for the introduction of other camps, and new people.

    Here’s a suggestion on who Negan kills at the beginning of season 7 that I’ve yet to see anywhere: Rick Grimes!

    Think through this with me. 1. There’s not been a major arc for his character since the end of the second season. 2. Why would TV series Negan choose to kill anyone else? Rick attacked first in an extremely violent way. In this universe, Negan has to kill his worst threat. 3. The shows producers are bending over backwards to protect the secret of who dies, and they’re filming much of season 7 out of order. Yet, in the just released issue 17, Summer 2016 of TWD, page13 of The Kirkman Corner, Robert Kirkman states, “When we see who was killed and what the outcome of that is, and where that leads Rick and the rest of the survivors – I guess I just gave up that it’s not Rick, so it’s not Rick [ spoiler! – ed.] – that’s the beginning of a new story.” Would Kirkman really make the mistake that Rick is not their choice to die? No.

    Rick’s death would be the MOST dramatic choice, and a true step in starting a “new story.”

    Warm Regards,
    Bob

      So you think it could be Rick because Kirkman says it’s not?
      You read the comic, don’t you, Bob. Lol!
      Jokes aside, maybe this could work in a near future when someone could easily step up & fill the role (thinking of the comic) or more likely, the show must come to an end, but as of now, this is still Rick’s spotlight. I disagree with you on there not being any major arc for him since S2… the whole show is pretty much his & the show without Rick at this point & in my opinion, would take a huge plunge. Yeah, it would be a MAJOR shocker, for sure, but then what (No, Daryl could not carry this show, I don’t care what anybody says!)? The attack on the compound was a group effort, so Negan may not necessarily be assessing who the biggest threat is that he needs to eliminate as of yet… he just needs to take control of the group like he obviously did with The Hilltop. Rick looks pretty pathetic in that lineup anyway & based on just their stance in that lineup, if I was Negan, I’d go straight for Abraham. This is Rick’s story & nobody else could carry the show for now. So I doubt very seriously they’d kill Rick off right now. He’s damn near as safe as Glenn by the dumpster.

      It would be insane, but I don’t think they could go THAT far.

    It appears that dear Sasha is the only one with the light fixed on her pretty head. Coincidence or symbolism – what do you think?

    Jesus guys, why so many downvotes? People are just expressing their opinion. If you don’t agree with it, why not argue and create a calm and reasonable discussion?

    My wish: Daryl
    My call: Glenn

    I’m trying to go into season 7 with a fresh attitude, but that cliffhanger really, really, REALLY shattered my trust in the writers. I will be watching, but they need to do something incredible in order to earn my trust back. No more dumpster diving, no more “ah-ha, GOTCHA!” moments, no more ham handed Hollywood tropisms. Go big by doing something cool or go home.

    In regards to will it or won’t it be Glenn, and fan expectations vs the show/comic death:

    I don’t agree with the idea that killing Glenn somehow cheapens the scene simply because it was already in the comics. The scene was powerful not only because of how brutal it was, but because it was an established character that people had come to know and grow fond of. We got to see this character at their highs and at their lows, and we came to love the character. Yeah, it would be kind of cool to see them do something different, but with the kill lineup that they have the writers have kind of put themselves in a corner a bit.

    Killing Rosita would be “unexpected” but it would also be completely underwhelming. The show has done a shitty job of letting b-tier and c-tier characters shine. So while killing Rosita would be sad, it wouldn’t be as impactful as an established character getting it. And out of the lineup, who can we say is really an A-tier character? Rick, Carl, Glenn, Michonne, Daryl, maybe Maggie. You could argue Abraham too but that is more debatable.

    Let’s face it, Rick’s plot armor is so thick that the writers could drop a nuclear bomb on him and he’d still manage to live somehow. Same thing with Carl. And since Michonne has taken Andrea’s place we can assume the same with her.

    Honestly, if they really wanted to do something different and shocking then they should kill Maggie. I would be floored if they actually did that, but because they have clearly set her up as Dianna’s successor, her place is going to be at the Hilltop. And since the writers have been trying to build the rivalry between Daryl and Dwight I think that that makes Daryl safe. Who else can they realistically kill that would elicit the kind of emotional reaction that the writers are trying to go for? Aaron and Rosita haven’t gotten enough development and people are still kind of on the fence about Eugene. And no one really cares about Sasha.

    I get what some people are saying, and what I think WILL happen doesn’t necessarily reflect what I personally would choose to have happen. But I’ll use Game of Thrones as an example: everyone who read the books knew the Red Wedding was coming and what would happen. Did that make it any less emotional when it played out in the show? Or Ned’s fate? Or Jon Snow’s stabbing? Even if it’s predictable it can still be emotionally heavy as shit, as long as it’s done correctly.

    If they do pick Glenn then I hope they portray it as brutally and as dark as they do in the comic. There’s no need to pick something different just for the sake of being different, if the original can be filmed in a way that elicits the same emotional response as it does in the comic. As it stands, I don’t think the writers have a lot of sensible options. Which is why I wish that if they were going to do this stupid shithanger that they would replace Aaron and Rosita in the lineup with Morgan and Carol. Now THAT would make it much harder to guess who dies, and it gives them more options in terms of longstanding/loved characters to pick from. But with how things played out, there aren’t a lot of convincing options.

    Sorry for the lengthy response, and if anyone read all of it then thanks for taking the time, haha. :^)
