The Walking Dead Season 7 does not have a premiere date yet, but it will be sometime this fall. What can fans expect when the zombie series returns to AMC? TWD Season 7 spoilers reveal a few things that happen after Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) big kill.
Warning: The Walking Dead Season 7 spoilers are ahead!
The Season 6 finale introduced Negan, but fans were disappointed. Even though it was obvious Negan had killed one member of Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) group, the victim’s identity was not revealed. However, Season 7 filming details do tease what will happen after Negan’s big kill. Interested? Keeping reading to find out everything we know so far.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Daryl Dixon will be kidnapped by Negan and the Saviors. The purpose of taking Norman Reedus’ character is unknown, but Negan has a reason for everything he does. As The Spoiling Dead Fans pointed out, there is evidence that Daryl tries to escape more than once, and both attempts are unsuccessful.
There seems to be a lot of filming going on at the Sanctuary, which is the Saviors’ home base. Expect some screen time featuring Negan, Daryl, Dwight (Austin Amelio), and his girlfriend. It was reported that there will be a car chase due to an escaped member of the Saviors. Filming for the car chase was two days, so one has to wonder if it is a big part of the storyline.
Also, expect to see Ezekiel and Shiva from the TWD comics. A casting call for “Augustus” was sent out, but the description sounds a lot like Ezekiel. For those that don’t know, Shiva is Ezekiel’s pet tiger, who likes to gnaw on zombies. Also, TV Line reported that another casting call has been issued for “Rogers.” Based on the description, it sounds like Rogers is code for Richard, one of Ezekiel’s guards.
That’s right, The Kingdom is coming to The Walking Dead.
Other TWD Season 7 spoilers include Negan attacking Alexandria. This speculation came forth after a fan at the filming location noticed smoke coming from the gated community. In the comic books, Rick tries to kill Negan when he pays Alexandria a surprise visit. However, the Saviors are hiding nearby and throw grenades. This results in several homes being set on fire, and some even explode.
In The Walking Dead comic books, Alexandria joins forces with the Hilltop Colony and The Kingdom to beat Negan. During the battle, many lives are lost, but Negan is defeated. However, don’t expect him to be killed. In Robert Kirkman’s graphic novels, Negan is kept prisoner in a cage. However, this TWD villain has a habit of escaping, not to run away, but just to taunt Rick Grimes. There is a good possibility that the TV show will closely mirror the comic books when it comes to Negan.
“I know a little bit, I know where we’re going. I’ve got a stack of The Walking Dead comic books next to my bed here,” Jeffrey Dean Morgan told Variety. “I think we’re going to stick pretty close to what you see in the graphic novel with this character because he’s so iconic to this world, so this storyline is going to stay true. From what I understand talking to Scott Gimple and Robert Kirkman, we’re gonna try and keep it pretty close. I think that’s something to be able to look forward to because it’s a great storyline.”
What do you think is going to happen with Negan after his big kill? What are your predictions for The Walking Dead Season 7? The show returns to AMC in fall 2016.
