The Walking Dead pulled few punches with 2016 closer “Hearts Still Beating,” but we’ll have to wait until 2017 to see Rick and co. finally standing up to Negan. Our first trailer for the 2017 return has arrived, as everyone from Alexandria, to The Kingdom to Hilltop finally prepares to strike back against the Saviors.
At long last, the fragmented approach to The Walking Dead Season 7 is giving way to an actual story, if only in time for this weekend’s midseason finale “Hearts Still Beating.” We’ve seen one clip, but a second look finally brings us back to Carol and Morgan, while yet another sees Aaron and Rick undertaking a risky voyage.
Horror is one of the most flexible film genres, encompassing everything from the broadly fantastical to the disturbingly real. Because of that, it’s sometimes hard to nail down exactly what belongs on a “best horror” round-up and what doesn’t. Undoubtedly, genre aficionados will quibble about what’s on and what’s off the list below, not just because of differences of opinion over quality, but because of disagreements over definition.
Even as The Walking Dead keeps Carl alive as a symbol of hope for the future, it stands to reason Chandler Riggs will eventually leave the series behind. That prospect got more immediate with word Riggs would soon be attending college, for which the Walking Dead star says of the balancing act “It wouldn’t be easy but I think that could be possible.”
It’s open season on The Walking Dead Season 7 as we brace for the 2016 finale, given that Negan is hanging around Alexandria with all manner of disgruntled survivors. At least two are ready to confront the bat-wielding baddie in a new clip from midseason finale “Hearts Still Beating,” including one that very well deserves her revenge.

It’s safe to say that the addition of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan to The Walking Dead has been a controversial one; strong actor, but in a role weighing on viewers. Morgan has time yet to flesh out Negan’s nuances, confirming not only his return for Season 8, but also explaining some of the mysterious leaks that cropped up around his entrance.
You’d be forgiven to question who, if any of The Walking Dead’s main cast is in danger of dying these days, but certainly Andrew Lincoln’s Rick and Chandler Riggs’ Carl have been largely protected. That said, recent rumblings have questioned Riggs’ future with the series, for which co-star Tom Payne asserts “I think Carl is the guy at the end on the last page.”
The TV vampire craze seems more or less behind us, especially after The Vampire Diaries comes to a close in 2017, but could Anne Rice’s original bloodsuckers bring it back? We might find out, as rights to The Vampire Chronicles are officially primed for a TV series of “the highest quality,” according to the author.
