The Walking Dead Season 7 is returning to our screens soon enough. As the date comes nearer, it appears a new character and location will be introduced in its second half.
Synopsis of Season 7B previously revealed viewers will be introduced to “new fighters.” It was also emphasized how fans will surely be meeting “new survivors in incredible places.” While at the time it remained vague, the latest teaser photo shows new characters might indeed come to the hit AMC series.
New Character to be Introduced?
A photo exclusively released by EW.com shows Rick confronting who appears to be a woman as only the person’s back was shown. The background also looks like a junkyard setting while the rest of the group does not look so happy behind Rick.
This leads to the speculation that the group might be related to the mysterious stranger spying on the Alexandrians during the midseason finale of The Walking Dead Season 7. And of course, showrunner Scott M. Gimple chose to remain tight-lipped of the fans’ questions.
What he assured, though, is that Rick will meet this “person and/or persons” rather quickly. He also teased the answers are “just around the heap.”
Gimple also says he cannot wait for the viewers to meet this new character and the actor behind him/her. In the end, he promises a “formidable fun” is about to come up.
Fighting Back Against Negan, Finally
It does indeed look like series will pick up with more action on the other half of the season. Even Andrew Lincoln, the actor behind Rick, promises his character’s “thrill” to fight back has returned.
The groups, Alexandria, the Hilltop and the Kingdom, will come together soon too, in one way or another, to once and for all takedown Negan and the Saviors. The synopsis also stated how the preparation for the “all out war” will be “nothing short of remarkable.”
With The Walking Dead Season 7 set to return on Feb. 12, more and more teases continue to intrigue fans. What is left to do now is to wait for the action that is promised on Season 7B to unfold.
