The Walking Dead will return to AMC on October 23, and now Greg Nicotero has teased some more about the upcoming season in a new interview. At the end of season six, fans saw Negan end the life of a member of the core cast. The identity of that person will be revealed at the start of season seven.
Apparently, this death will only lead to more for the group. Nicotero said the following, according to Deadline:
“I think it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better for our group, and it’s pretty intense. I mean, the show, we’re sort of opening a new chapter. I mean, it’s really, Rick is now, if you really think about his journey in the comic books, he shares the spotlight with Negan in the comic book. Negan now has some ownership over what the show is about. It’s the anticipation and the excitement of new worlds that we’re going to, like the Hilltop, like the Kingdom, like the Sanctuary where Negan lives. Everybody’s putting so much of their heart and soul into it.”
