Hit zombie show returned for its seventh season earlier this month
The trailer for next week’s episode of The Walking Dead has been revealed. Scroll below to watch.
The hit zombie show returned last week, finally revealing to viewers who was killed by Negan. Episode two of season seven followed in the US last night (October 30), airing in the UK this evening (October 31).
Spoiler alert: This new trailer for the episode titled ‘The Cell’ sees Daryl tortured as he’s kidnapped by Negan and crew. Watch that in the clip beneath.
Season six concluded back in April with a cliffhanger ending that saw an unidentified character (or characters) being beaten to death by newly introduced character Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
The first episode of season seven, titled ‘The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be’, revealed the deaths of characters Glenn Rhee (played by Steven Yeun) and Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz).
The opening episode was also criticised by a US TV watchdog group for its “graphically violent” and “brutally explicit” content.
But director Greg Nicotero defended the episode and said it was important to stay true to the comic.
He added: “What struck me about [the comic] was it was horrifically graphic and senseless and brutal. In this instance, we felt that it was important to launch us into this season by showing the extent of what Negan is capable of doing. It’s really unfortunate that people want to take a negative spin on it because, as far as I’m concerned, I’m dedicated to watching a show because I want to see where the story’s going to go next.”
It has also been confirmed that The Walking Dead has been renewed for an eighth season. Season eight will premiere in late 2017, kicking off with the show’s 100th episode
