Season 6


Season 8

Season seven of the survival horror television series The Walking Dead began airing on AMC on October 23rd, 2016. Unquestionably, the most highly anticipated season of the series to date, it picks up following the events of the season six cliffhanger, which introduced the super-bad guy Negan, and concluded with the unrevealed mystery of "Which member of Team Rick died at the hands of Negan and his barb-wire wrapped baseball bat, Lucille?" That question spurned fandom into overload for the following six months until finally answered in gruesome and shockingly disturbing detail in the season seven premiere episode, "The Day Will Come When You Won't Be". As Negan was now presented as the primary antagonist of the series, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan was now added to the show's main line-up. All of the previous main cast members from season six received credit in the premiere episode so as to not prematurely spoil the mystery of who would get "lucilled".

Notes & Trivia Edit

  • The tagline for this season is "We're just getting started".
  • This season adapts material from The Walking Dead comic book series beginning with issue #100, which presented the death of the character of Glenn Rhee.
  • Alanna Masterson's noticeable absence from the back-end of season six of The Walking Dead and the first few episodes of season seven were due to the fact that she was off having a child. She gave birth to a daughter named Marlowe.
  • Alanna Masterson's return to the series in season seven was met with some harsh responses from the internet community, who felt the need to comment about her apparent weight gain. Masterson fired back with own comments on Instagram. [1]
  • The second half of season seven began with episode 1x09, "Rock in the Road". This half of the season was billed under the tagline of "Rise Up".
