THE WALKING DEAD Mid-Season Premiere Synopsis and Images Released

AMC releases the official synopsis for the mid-season premiere of THE WALKING DEAD, and they’re gathering forces to fight back. 

The Walking Dead is less than a month away from returning to bloody our sets with serious carnage. Yep, the second half of season 7 of The Walking Dead looks a little more uplifting as Rick seems to have found his balls again. Of course, it’s probably going to take some major convincing on all their parts to get a big enough group to fight Negan and his Saviors.

Watch the sneak peek of the upcoming episode and check the synopsis and photos 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 on Sunday, February 12, 2017 at 9pm on AMC.
