As the cold, wet month of February trudges on there is at least one blood-soaked treat to look forward to, as the second half of The Walking Dead’s seventh season is nearly upon us. After some levelled criticism at the drop of pace following the head popping debut, 7B needs to bring together all the plot strands it’s been weaving and speed things towards the inevitable war. We thought it timely to see what questions need to be answered, as the Rick rebellion is now fully underway…

The Walking Dead Producer Says Rick And Daryl’s Reunion Spells Bad News For Negan

6 February 2017 5:45 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a harrowing, fairly miserable first batch of season 7 episodes, AMC’s The Walking Dead finally gave fans some relief and ended the midseason finale on a positive note with an emotional reunion between Rick and the newly-escaped Daryl. When the show returns from its hiatus this week, those two will set about combining the various communities that survive under Negan’s rule, and apparently that’s going to be very bad news for the deranged villain and his army of Saviors.

While being interviewed over at AMC’s official site, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd revealed that Rick’s determination to keep the rest of the group safe combined with Daryl’s feeling of responsibility for his part in Glenn’s death mean that they’re absolutely determined to see things through, and won’t let anything deter them from their new mission to take down The Saviors once and for all. »

Super Bowl: ‘The Walking Dead’ Teaser Declares ‘Football Season is Over’

5 February 2017 6:33 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC served up a provocative Super Bowl teaser for the second half of season seven of “The Walking Dead.”

The 15-second spot depicted a football laying on AstroTurf with the sound of crickets in the background. After a few seconds, a baseball bat wrapped with barb wire came crashing down on the football.

The baseball bat was a reference to the deadly weapon wielded by Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan character in the seventh-season opener of the zombie drama series that aired on October. The second half of the season seven bows Feb. 12.

AMC and “Walking Dead” producers faced harsh criticism even from fans for the level of violence in the season opener. Exec producer Gale Anne Hurd last month acknowledged that the backlash from fans to the brutal deaths of two characters prompted some adjustments in the level of violence depicted in later episodes.

The remaining seven episodes will focus on the response to Negan’s »

The Walking Dead Season 7B Featurette Contains Some New Footage

2 February 2017 3:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we get closer to the highly anticipated midseason premiere of The Walking Dead, AMC has released a new 3-minute featurette for the first episode back, which is titled “Rock in The Road.”

The video begins with some previously seen shots of various characters, most of them reacting to the horrific events of the now infamous season 7 premiere. After that, we get a couple of interview snippets from the likes of Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Scott Gimple and Gale Anne Hurd, and then it’s on to the new stuff.

A meeting between Rick Grimes and Eziekel has been teased for a while now, but here we finally get our first proper glimpse of the now desperate leader of the Alexandrians appealing to the “King” for help. Rick makes the argument that both communities should join together and fight for their collective freedom, but the tiger man doesn’t seem too convinced. »

The Walking Dead executive producers dispute claim that violence has been toned down following season 7 premiere

24 January 2017 3:55 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd spoke about the criticism towards the graphic violence of the season seven premiere, suggesting that subsequent episodes had been toned down in order to prevent further backlash from some sections of the fanbase. Well, it seems that may not be the case after all, with Hurd’s fellow executive producers Scott Gimple and Greg Nicotero offering an alternative account during a chat with Entertainment Weekly.

“The violence in the premiere was pronounced for a reason,” said showrunner Gimple. “The awfulness of what happened to the characters was very specific to that episode and the beginning of this whole new story. I don’t think like that’s the base level of violence that necessarily should be on the show. It should be specific to a story and a purpose, and there was a purpose of traumatizing these characters to a »
