Heading into its seventh season, The Walking Dead is already at an age when most series would look to start wrapping things up, though its status as AMC’s flagship hit with miles of Robert Kirkman story ahead would make that unlikely. It’s a question sure to plague the AMC series more and more in the coming years, but according to Andrew Lincoln and Scott Gimple, one idea sees Robert Kirkman ending both his long-running comic and the TV Walking Dead simultaneously.

The Walking Dead may not have revealed Negan's victim, but the smash AMC drama certainly made a killing at Comic-Con 2016. We already caught the trailer, but what major details did the zombie-killer cast reveal from the assembled cast in San Diego? Our full panel report!
Walking Dead fans remain on the edge of their seats for news of Negan’s cliffhanger victim, though the characters themselves have new reason to kneel. Khary Payton has officially joined the Season 7 cast in the role of “King” Ezekiel, a fan-favorite comic character with a fiercely protective companion.
We’ve wondered for months how The Walking Dead might handle a Season 7 trailer without spoiling the big revelation of Negan’s victim, and Comic-Con 2016 finally gave us the answer. It’s a brave and deadly new world for Rick’s group, with the full Season 7 trailer confirming some fierce new additions.
It’s still unclear how exactly The Walking Dead intends to keep Negan’s victim a secret through months of trailers and set photos into the October premiere, but even then, Season 7 may not deliver its key revelation right away. Executive producer Greg Nicotero teases a unique structure to the premiere, which itself will be smaller in scale than Season 6.
However The Walking Dead chooses to address its big cliffhanger from Comic-Con 2016, we at least know Morgan and Carol remain safe, and en route to their new armored friends’ mystery camp. A new photo from Season 7 seemingly confirms as much, but is this our first official look at comic locale “The Kingdom”?
If perhaps you worried that The Walking Dead Season 7 promotional tour might remain as mercilessly teasing as the finale itself, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. In addition to the first, familiar-seeming photo, the official Comic-Con 2016 key art for Season 7 teases … well, another very familiar sight.
Apart from the Season 6 cliffhanger itself, The Walking Dead raises significant questions as to how Season 7 might release trailers and photos without spoiling Negan’s victim. We may have a frustrating first answer, as the first official photo from the new season looks a trifle familiar. Batter up!
Whatever complaints we level at The Walking Dead, few could argue the artistry of the undead outshining movie zombies year after year. Season 6 served up some particularly gross walkers, from sewers to sandwiched in a quarry, so gird your stomachs for a look at the best from the Season 6 Blu-ray.
The Walking Dead has been through several iterations in its six seasons, each with their own adherence and deviations from the Robert Kirkman comics. One particularly abrupt change saw Laurie Holden’s Andrea exit The Walking Dead in Season 3, something Holden now claims was a last-minute decision that re-shaped the series.
