After just releasing some new photos today, AMC also dropped the synopsis for Season 7B of The Walking Dead, which premieres February 12th. In the synopsis, they tease about the struggle that will come with uniting forces against Negan. It’s going to take everything Alexandria, Hilltop, and the Kingdom have to defeat the bat wielding psychopath.
Along the way they’re encounter strangers, betrayal, and a strength that comes from being united. But will it be enough?
Read the synopsis below:
Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose – to defeat Negan – it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.
We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.
The Walking Dead returns February 12th at 9/8c on AMC.
