Rick’s Uprising Teased In THE WALKING DEAD 7B Featurette

THE WALKING DEAD cast has plenty to say about the coming war with Negan!

For many fans of The Walking Dead, the first half of Season 7 was intriguing but frustrated. After losing two beloved characters, we saw the survivors struggling to hold their ground and constantly falling victim to The Saviors, lead by vicious baddie Negan. A new featurette (via Collider) explains how slowly but surely, things are due to change in the second half of the season!

The featurette focuses a decent amount of time on recapping the first half of the season with the cast and creators, explaining why the characters reacted the way that they did in the face of trauma. Then it goes on to tackle we fans can expect from the rest of the season and what Rick’s people still need to properly rebel against the “magnificent odds,” complete with a few new shots from the back half of the season.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC on February 12, 2017.

The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.

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.
