AMC released a strange and frightening TV spot for The Walking Dead during the Superbowl this Sunday, titled ‘Football is Over.’ In the TV spot a football lays on the field and all is quiet and calm. Just when you think a zombie is going to pick up the ball or some sort of rampage is going to take stage, Lucille comes into view. She smashes that football into the ground as a reminder of what she did to Glenn and Abraham (who everyone forgets died as well in the Season 7 premiere) and what’s yet to come for our survivors.
War is coming. We best prepare ourselves.
Check out the Superbowl Spot below:
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.
