Next week, the cast and crew of The Walking Dead will make their annual trek to San Diego Comic-Con to promote Season 7 of this wildly popular series. As you surely know by now, Season 6 ended with a huge cliffhanger, as the nefarious Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) killed one member of Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) group, although it wasn't shown who in fact was killed. While we get ready for SDCC next week, AMC has released a new poster, that lines up all of the possible victims.
The poster, which debuted on Twitter, features series regular characters Glenn (Steven Yeun), Rosita (Christian Serratos), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), Maggie Lauren Cohan), Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Aaron Ross Marquand), Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Eugene (Josh McDermitt). Ever since the Season 6 finale, fans have offered various theories as to who will be the victim, with one individual isolating the audio from the mysterious death scene to try and determine who was killed. While we certainly won't know who was killed until the new season premieres, there have been plenty of theories.
Just yesterday, a new theory surfaced which hinted Lauren Cohan's Maggie may have been killed off. The actress has recently posted photos on Instagram from New York City and other undisclosed locations that certainly don't seem to be Atlanta, where the show is currently in production. There have also been rumors that she has been absent from the set since the end of filming the third episode, but she hasn't been the only one who has been absent. The actress' on-screen husband Steven Yeun also hasn't been seen on the set recently, with the actor filming a new movie entitled Okja for director Bong Joon-ho.
The show's Twitter also confirms that the first trailer will premiere during their annual Comic-Con panel, which will take place Friday, July 22 at 1 PM in Hall H. Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Sonequa Martin-Green, Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, Christian Serratos and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are confirmed for the panel. They will be joined by executive producer and showrunner Scott M. Gimple, executive producer Robert Kirkman, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, executive producer Dave Alpert, and special effects makeup supervisor and executive producer Greg Nicotero in a panel moderated by Chris Hardwick (Talking Dead). The panelists will discuss the shocking finale of season 6 and a sneak peek into season 7, debuting in October on AMC.
Along with the trailer, the show will also most likely announce the premiere date for Season 7, and possibly introduce new characters. There has been plenty of rumors teasing that this season will introduce a character from Robert Kirkman's comics known as Ezekiel, the leader of a group known as The Kingdom. Take a look at this new poster and photo of Rick and his crew kneeling before Negan, as we continue the countdown towards The Walking Dead Season 7.
