AMC has released the premiere date and the first official trailer for The Walking Dead Season 7.
First, we can confirm that new episodes of the cable smash hit will kick off on Sunday, October 23 at 9/8c.
This exciting tidbit was dropped today at Comic-Con in San Diego.
Next, we can offer fans a look at scenes from fall installments, as the network has also unveiled the first extended Walking Dead Season 7 preview.
We need to first warn you that, no, the identity of the man or woman on the receiving end of Negan's baseball bat is not revealed in the video below.
We still don't know which series regular will not be with us come October. (Although we have our theories!)
The intriguing trailer opens with misty water-colored memories of all the characters (and we mean ALL the character) who might be coming back just long enough to say a violent farewell.
We also get a glimpse one of the new settings to come this year, along with a character from the graphic novel series who is making his long-anticipated debut.
Oh, yes, you can watch here for your first look of Ezekiel (played by newcomer Khary Payton), the ma in charge of a never-before-seen community of survivors known as The Kingdom.
Let's just say he has a pet tiger.
He also appears to have the kind of resources that Rick may need to defeat Negan once and for all.
(Assuming Rick survives, that is, but come on. We all know Rick is going to survive.)
Check out the trailer below, post your comment with your thoughts on who got killed by Negan and let the countdown to The Walking Dead Season 7 begin!
