“The Walking Dead” Gets Official Synopsis and New Images from Season 7’s Second Half

The war begins on Sunday, February 12th.

When we last saw Rick Grimes and friends, they had finally reunited inside the walls of the Hilltop Colony, determined to take the fight to Negan and his Saviors and reclaim the apocalypse-ravaged world that they once dominated. As this hot-off-the-presses synopsis indicates, the second half of Season 7 will document the road to the all-out war that they plan on unleashing…

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 have to go to in order 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.

Along with the official synopsis, AMC also sent over three brand new images from February 12th’s return episode; you can see one above and the others below. What can we learn from the images? Our group of badass survivors sure looks to be as united as ever, and it also looks like Rick has finally regained his confidence. We look forward to seeing him be the leader once more.

You messed with the wrong group, Negan.

“The Walking Dead” is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, Dave Alpert and Tom Luse.

    Not gonna lie, an entire half-season dedicated to PREPARING for war sounds boring as balls. “Let’s talk to these guys. K, now we need to talk to these guys. K, we all need to talk now. Nice.”
    I’m sure the finale will be hyped leading into All Out War though.

      Yep, any more boring shit and it won’t be worth it to watch.

      While I do think the overall premise sounds like a lot of time to spend on uniting the three groups, it is notable that it specifically says “To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches.”

    Looking FWD to it as always! Loved last season. Now I know I risk the wrath of the haters out there for suggesting this but you would think this show would get a look in somewhere during awards season, it is my humble opinion that the acting in a his series is first rate and so are the special effects.
