As the show’s second season wrapped up, the series’ cast, writers, and producers were eager to talk about the upcoming season, which is slated to premiere in the fall of 2019.
While the season will feature a few major twists and turns, the first few episodes of the new season are looking to provide a more grounded, and perhaps more exciting, take on the character’s backstory and world-building.
We spoke with series executive producer Robert Kirkman about the challenges ahead of season seven, and how he hopes fans will take to the show.
Here are five things you should know about the first episode of season 7:1.
It’s called “The Walking.
It will be the second-to-last episode of the season, and will be “very emotional” in its ending.3.
There’s no clear villain in the new episodes.
The story will hinge on how Rick and Michonne handle their relationship with the zombie outbreak.
Michonne’s storyline will be more involved than in the past.4.
It looks like the characters are heading into a more complex and nuanced relationship.5.
The new season will focus on a few key storylines: Michonne is still living with the plague and mourning the death of her son, and Rick is still dealing with the fallout from his own decision to join forces with Carl.1.
The New York Times: “The New York Post reported on Sunday that the season premiere of ‘The Walking Dead’ will be a bittersweet one.
Season seven, the seventh season, has been a slow-burn, a steady stream of new information, and a very big leap forward for Rick Grimes and the group of survivors he has assembled.
The finale of season 6, ‘The Whisperer in the Darkness,’ ended with the group returning to their old camp and meeting Michonne and Rick for the first time since that first encounter.
‘The new season is the story of how Rick is navigating his life now that he has his family back, and is trying to make sense of the events that have happened with his son, Michonne,’ a network insider told the Post.
‘This season will be very emotional.’2.
Entertainment Weekly: ‘The New Yorker’ had this to say about season 7, saying that, “Rick and Mich are still grieving, and Mich is still mourning.
Mich is in the midst of a new love affair with a man who seems to be able to save her.
Rick is struggling with the death, which he feels he has caused and that he will be punished.
And Mich is trying desperately to heal.
Mich has been given the chance to make things right, to save the world.
‘There’s a lot of great character development going on here, and this season is going to be a lot more interesting than what we saw in ‘The Second Coming,’ but the biggest change is that Mich has finally become an ally.
That’s where we are at this point.
It seems like a very bittersweet end, and that the series has taken a new direction.
But Rick has never had a choice.
He had to make his decision.”3.
The Hollywood Reporter: ‘Rick and Morty’ season 7 will feature “a lot of big twists and changes” and “a big emotional and philosophical episode,” says executive producer Bryan Fuller.
The showrunner has described season 7 as a “rebirth,” with the characters “going back to their roots.”4.
IGN: “Rick Grimes has lost all his memories of the past four years.
He’s lost the people who have supported him since the apocalypse.
His family has been wiped out.
He has no one he can turn to for support.
He doesn’t even know where he is.
And he’s never really seen Michonne,” Fuller said of the showrunner’s plan for season 7.5.”
The New Yorker: “There are a lot less twists and more direct storytelling, and we get to really delve into the emotions of Rick and the people he has lost.
The characters are a little bit more layered, and the show is coming into a new world.
There are so many things going on that I’ve never seen before, but I’m going to enjoy it all the same.”1.
Variety: “Season 7 has a lot going on, with some big twists, some big character changes, and some new and surprising revelations,” says series creator Dan Harmon.2.
The Washington Post: “What is surprising is that the entire season is essentially one long flashback to the past, when the apocalypse was still fresh and people were still desperate to get out of the zombie-infested city.
That flashback has a very different feel from the season prior, and it’s a really important thing to realize.
And the way that Rick and his team are handling this, I think, has a huge influence on what’s to come,” Fuller says of the reveal in season 7 of Michonne.3,
