The Walking Dead 7B featurette teases the beginning of the resistance
There’s a storm coming on The Walking Dead, and IGN have shared an exclusive preview that teases what’s to come when the series returns. The three plus minutes includes new footage as well as commentary from the cast and producers discussing how the characters are moving forward after the disheartening events of the first half of the season, particularly how they will begin to band together to defeat The Saviors and begin to rebuild.
“It begins with a man being obedient and going out of his way and risking his life for Negan in order to preserve life in Alexandria. But throughout there are successions of moments that change his mind and makes him realize that this is an untenable situation. There is this moment of optimism, one of the rare, rare moments in this front 8 [episodes] that, you know, that we’re rebuilding. And we’re together again. Or at least it’s the beginning of the resistance.” declares Andrew Lincoln.
Watch the featurette below:
The official synopsis for 7B: Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose – to defeat Negan – it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.
We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.
Watch how Rick’s group reemerges and faces off against magnificent odds when The Walking Dead returns February 12th.
