The Walking Dead is about to drop some major spoilers this month for Season 7, and there really is no way for them to avoid it. But that does not mean they are going to make it easy for their fans to figure out the big secret from the Season 6 finale.
For The Walking Dead fans that pay strict attention to everything that gets said in the press and around social media, then they will be dissecting every corner, every nook and cranny and every tiny molecule of what is going to be brought to Comic Con this year in San Diego to get the spoilers. That means everything that gets said and everything that gets put on display for Season 7 of The Walking Dead will be analyzed down to the slightest detail by hardcore fans.

For those of you who will be attending SDCC 2016 this year, then you might want to make sure that you are in Hall H on Friday, July 22 at 12 p.m local time. That is the official kick off to the Walking Dead presentations, which starts the first hour with Fear The Walking Dead, then segues over to the granddaddy of them all, The Walking Dead at 1 p.m. local time, according to Variety.
The house is going to be packed for The Walking Dead this year and everyone is going to try and find some way to sneak in a camera or two just so that they can film the footage of The Walking Dead presentation and come back later to analyze everything that they saw and heard. If there is a trailer for Season 7 of The Walking Dead, then that is where all the major spoilers are going to spill out.
The trailer is something that The Walking Dead has done in the past and it is something that they will likely do this year, at major risk of course. But who knows, that trailer could in someway be a decoy for people to officially call the spoiler for the wrong person that may have died at the hands of Negan. The Walking Dead producers have been known to go to great lengths to keep the spoilers under cover until Season 7 of the show premieres.

Just last month, producers for The Walking Dead had to fight drones flying over the production of the set, looking for scenes filmed with various characters that had been sat down on their knees and awaiting execution at the end of Season 6. That means they had to film a death scene for each and every character that was kneeling before Negan on The Walking Dead Season 6 finale.
On that season finale, those who were lined up before Negan include Carl (Chandler Riggs), Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Aaron (Ross Marquand), Rosita (Christian Serratos), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), and Glenn (Steven Yeun), as reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
But in the Variety report, those who will be in attendance at SDCC 2016 this year for The Walking Dead are stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Sonequa Martin-Green, Christian Serratos, Ross Marquand and Josh McDermitt. Also in attendance will be The Walking Dead producers, directors and showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, and David Alpert.

So in other words, every single scene that is put on display at SDCC 2016 for The Walking Dead will be a potential spoiler as to who may have lived through that final scene in Season 6. But The Walking Dead producers like to really surprise their fans, so you can potentially expect to see a possible death scene for each one of the characters as well. One thing that producers for The Walking Dead have been very good at over the years has been to shock their viewers at just the right moment.
