The first official image from the upcoming seventh season of The Walking Dead featured the psychotic Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) cheerfully pointing his barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat Lucille at his chosen victim, and now AMC has released some new key art, which reverses the viewpoint and gives us a glimpse of the terrified faces of the group of main characters at his mercy.
Season 6 ended with a very controversial cliffhanger, but viewers have been promised we’ll find out which unfortunate soul (souls?) met a grisly end as soon as the show returns to our screens in a few months time. Before that, though, San Diego Comic-Con International attendees will get to see the first season 7 trailer during The Walking Dead panel, which will take place on Friday, July 22 at 1 p.m. PT in Hall H.
Cast members Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Sonequa Martin-Green, Christian Serratos, Ross Marquand, Josh McDermitt and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have all been confirmed to appear, so expect some big announcements to be made there.
Season 7 of The Walking Dead premieres in October, but before then, we’ll be sure to keep you posted with all the updates coming out of Comic-Con.
