When season 7 of The Walking Dead aired back in October, there was no denying that the new world belonged to Negan. However, when the show returns for the second half of the season next month, there will be All. Out. War.
Although a trailer and poster for 7B were released months ago, we now have new images and a synopsis for the final half of season 7 thanks to Entertainment Weekly! Read the synopsis below and then check out the gallery.
“The first half of season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.
Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose – to defeat Negan – it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will go to in 0rder to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.
We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.”
We don’t know about you guys but that description is making us even more excited for what’s to come!
The mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead airs February 12th at 9pm on AMC.
