There’s just weeks to wait until The Walking Dead returns to our screens – and now a new trailer for Season Seven of the hit zombie series has been unveiled.
The new clip teases what it’s like living under new super-villain Negan’s regime. You can watch the clip below.
The sixth season of the US show ended in April and met with a fair amount of outcry from fans who, angered by the show’s cliffhanger ending , launched an online petition asking TV network AMC to reveal which character was killed by Negan.
However, Norman Reedus, who plays chief zombie slayer Daryl Dixon in the series, has said that the new episodes will make up for the frustration.
“Trust me,” he said. “I think probably the planet is going to explode. That’s my feeling.
“It’s so good. Every time we go on a promotional tour talking about what’s going to come, we all say ‘Oh my God, it’s amazing. I can’t wait for you to see it.’ But it continually surprises me how this show grows and is put together and the execution of it – no pun intended.
“It blows my mind. It just continually reaches a new plateau every single time, and this is the highest plateau we’ve ever been. So just wait. It’s worth the wait, trust me.”
Reedus has also said that it’s “a complete change of power” now Negan is on the scene.
“That group of people have been fighting to have their feet firmly on the ground and have some sort of direction to live in and some sort of code to live by and moral compass, and they thought they were doing it okay, you know?”
“It was hard, and they had to go through things all the time, but they were on a path, and now that path has been ripped from their feet, and things that they believe in are completely different now.”
The Walking Dead is due to return on October 23 in the US, and the following day in the UK.
