The countdown for The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere has officially begun. Okay, technically it began the exact second Season 6 ended, but now we have the first teaser photo just released by AMC.
AMC tweeted the teaser photo yesterday, and it’s making us very nervous once again. The image doesn’t reveal any new information, but it does confirm that the story will pick up exactly where it left off — Negan bludgeoning a member of Rick’s crew to death.
TWD executive producer Greg Nicotero also confirmed that we will definitely find out who met his or her fate with Lucille. “Yes, who was at the receiving end of Negan’s bat will be revealed in the first episode,” he told EW.
During their panel at San Diego Comic Con on July 22, TWD cast will premiere the Season 7 trailer.
None of this is making us feel any better, but at least we’ll have some resolution so we can start our grieving process. Season 7 premieres on October 9th.
