AMC isn’t one to look a rotting gift horse like The Walking Dead in the mouth, extending its highest-rated series so long as creator Robert Kirkman provides comic source material. That relationship doesn’t necessarily extend both ways, however, as Kirkman acknowledges AMC has zero input or foreknowledge of any potential story shakeups.

Look, we’re all a little stressed out by the election, and seeing Trump-monsters everywhere we look. Some fans even thought The Walking Dead might have taken that notion literally this past Sunday, but fear not; no such attempts to make the zombie apocalypse great again occurred, at least intentionally, per AMC.
The Walking Dead has spent the majority of Season 7 in the aftermath of Negan’s vicitms, but will finally return to Rick and co. in next Sunday’s “Service.” our first post-“The Cell” clip has arrived, as Alexandria prepares for the Saviors, and someone wants inside the gate.
‘The Walking Dead’ chows down on Season 7 with a stay in “The Cell,” but does our first trip to The Sanctuary justify Negan’s cruelty, or taste like dog food? How make we of Norman Reedus’ first nude scene? Find out in our full review!
The Walking Dead broke with its usual habit of super-sized premieres, going only six or so minutes past the hour for Season 7 return “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be.” We may yet get our 90-minute episode after all, however, as an upcoming hour featuring one of Negan’s biggest moments has been extended to 85 minutes.
This past Sunday’s second entry into The Walking Dead Season 7 swung considerably more positive, to say nothing introducing King Ezekiel’s friggin’ pet tiger into the mix. We’ve known for sometime that Shiva would serve as a combination of animatronics and CGI, but see for yourself in this behind-the-scenes look at Sunday’s “The Well.”
Chances are, you’ve heard of a few odd easter eggs linking The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, even going so far as to posit that the zombie apocalypse occurred shortly after the events of Breaking Bad’s final season. If not, allow Netflix to literally draw those connections for you, while we purchase supplies for a giant cork board.
It’s early enough into The Walking Dead Season 7 that we don’t yet know how the major story will unfold in the wake of Negan’s rampage. That said. AMC’s flagship hit is already looking forward to Season 8, as Max Steel star Maria Bello has “apparently” secured a role in The Walking Dead’s 2017 season.
The second outing of The Walking Dead Season 7 took us away from the gloom and doom of its heady premiere with a trip to The Kingdom, and it’s only fitting that next week’s third hour reveal yet another location. See where The Saviors call home, as a first clip from next week’s “The Cell” reveals Dwight and Negan’s captives in their native habitat.
‘The Walking Dead’ soldiers through Season 7 with a trip to “The Well,” but was our first trip to The Kingdom too early a diversion after last week’s brutal premiere? How do Ezekiel and Shiva make the grade? Find out in our full review!
