In just a few short weeks, The Walking Dead Season 7 will return with what could be the show's most anticipated episode ever, where fans will finally learn who was killed by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). To get fans ready for this nail-biting premiere, the stars and producers are holding a Q&A panel at New York Comic-Con this afternoon, but even if you can't make the trek to New York, you can watch the entire panel right here. We have a live stream video below that lets you watch the entire panel unfold, from the comfort of your own home.
Stars such as Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Michael Cudlitz, Sonequa Martin-Green, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Alanna Masterson, Austin Nichols and Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be on hand. They will be joined by Executive Producer and Showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Executive Producer Robert Kirkman, Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd, Executive Producer, Director and Special Effects Make-up Supervisor Greg Nicotero and Executive Producer David Alpert. The live stream will be provided by Twitch in the video player below.
Up until this point, our characters have lived through conflicts... Disease, hunger, scores of the undead, tragedy, betrayal, and unthinkable loss. Through this, they've become formidable. Powerful. Unstoppable. To start The Walking Dead Season 7, that power is taken away. They had found safety and stability. They had created a home. They thought the world was theirs. They thought they knew the world. They were wrong.
The first half of Season 7 sees our group fractured, broken, bereaved, and picking up the pieces while living under the thumb of oppression. Negan will have successfully brought the survivors under his control, brutally convincing them to live under his rules with a deadly and horrific example of what happens if they don't. Other characters are unaware of what's happened, but have become separated from the group either by incident or choice - they will learn that they can't escape this new turn of their world, either. This half-season is about these characters starting over. The overall theme of the season is beginning again. The world isn't what they thought it was. It's bigger and it's even more dangerous.
This season will also introduce fans to King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and his survivor's compound known as The Kingdom. It is believed that both Morgan (Lennie James) and Carol (Melissa McBride) will be taken to The Kingdom early on this season, after they encountered two members of The Kingdom in the Season 6 finale. The official synopsis teases that it may be quite some time before Morgan and Carol are reunited with Rick and his group, but perhaps we'll learn more about if and when they'll be reunited during today's NYCC panel. Take a look at the video below to watch the entire NYCC panel for The Walking Dead, to get ready for the Season 7 premiere on Sunday, October 23 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
