The images depict characters cowering in front of a baseball bat
Horror drama The Walking Dead has released posters for the upcoming season seven, coming this October.
The posters (posted on Instagram) depict several of the show’s characters looking up to a light and a baseball bat surrounded by barbed wire. Fans believe the posters are hinting at the cliffhanger ending to season six, which saw one unidentified character being beaten by the Saviors’ leader, Negan. The weapon seen in the poster, referred to as Lucille, is gripped by a black leather glove.

Though the identity of the assaulted character remains unknown, the comic books of the same name see Glenn as the victim of the attack. However, the abundance of characters revealed in the show’s teaser posters only add to the mystery about what the television show’s season seven will reveal.
The posters are timed to co-ordinate with the San Diego Comic Con, running July 21–24. The posts encourage viewers to head to “Booth 4237” at the convention to find out more about the upcoming season, using the hashtag #TWDSDCC (The Walking Dead San Diego Comic Con). The show is also holding a panel at the event on Friday 22 July, where they will debut the season seven trailer.
