Show returns later in October

The title and synopsis for the first episode of The Walking Dead season seven has been released.

The Walking Dead will be returning to the UK on October 24 after being launched on US network AMC a day earlier on October 23. Season six concluded back in April with a cliffhanger ending that saw an unidentified character being beaten by newly introduced character Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

AMC has now revealed that the season seven premiere will be titled ‘The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be’, a phrase that Dr Edwin Jenner uttered to Rick in the first season finale.

An official synopsis for the episode has also been released. It reads: “Last season ended with Rick and our group kneeling helplessly before Negan and his group. What Negan does will haunt those who survive forever.”

Meanwhile, Negan actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan has warned fans to expect the worst in season seven of the zombie series.

“You need to be very careful about what you wish for because you are going to get it and more this year,” Dean Morgan revealed of the first episode. “It’s emotional. It’s hard. It’s hyper-violent. It’s a lot to take. When the audience sees it, they will know exactly what ‘a lot’ means.”
