After releasing new photos over on EW, AMC decided to keep it going by releasing some badass looking character posters for it’s ‘Rise Up’ initiative on The Walking Dead. These 14 images feature some fan favorites and others we haven’t seen in a while. They include: Rick, Daryl, Maggie, Michonne, Father Gabriel, Eugene, Morgan, Aaron, Carl, Carol, Sasha, Rosita, Tara, and the dastardly Negan.
Each character is set against a white backdrop with a smear or rip of red across their face or body. While these portraits look like something really for a NYC gallery, they speak of trouble coming for Rick & Co.
Negan doesn’t take rebellion or disobedience lightly. One or more of these people won’t make it to the end of Season 7 and the producers want to remind us of that fact.
Read the synopsis for 7B 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.
