The Walking Dead season 7 is about beginning again

The Walking Dead Jeffrey Dean Morgan

We're now less than a month away from the season seven premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead and the resolution of that cliffhanger that has left fans desperate for answers ever since the season six finale back in April. In preparation for the show's return, AMC has released a synopsis that lets us know where we'll find the lead characters in the first half of the next season, and what the overall theme of this upcoming season is: 

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 Season Seven, 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 Seven 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. 

Very interesting stuff. I'm looking forward to seeing how Negan's arrival and hostile takeover is going to alter the show, and to seeing more of Jeffrey Dean Morgan's performance. Of course, I'm also anticipating the answer to the question "Who did Negan kill?"

Morgan, Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton, Austin Nichols, Xander Berkeley, Austin Amelio, and Tom Payne star in The Walking Dead, which returns to AMC airwaves on October 23rd at 9pm EST.
