You know Carol and Morgan. They’re only some of the most popular characters on AMC’s The Walking Dead. With season seven of The Walking Dead on the horizon, anticipation for these new episodes is at an all-time high. The show, adapted from the comic book series by Robert Kirkman, is a post-apocalyptic story that follows former police officer Rick Grimes, as he and a group of survivors fight zombies in a disease infested America. The show is hailed as television’s number one show and has held that title for the last six years. Now, last season Negan wreaked havoc. Due to last season’s cliffhanger, fans were left clueless as to who will get killed. According to the Walking Dead press conference at SDCC, things will pick up where they left off, which means things are going to get dark very quickly. Don’t worry, you won’t be waiting long to see who gets the bad end of Lucille. We know someone will meet their end, but who will it be?
Well, rejoice in knowing it won’t be Carol or Morgan. At least, not right now. In season seven, we’ll see the two on their journey throughout the “Kingdom.” Actor Scott M. Gimple talks to EW about what to expect in the Kingdom community and its ruler, King Ezekial.
I’ll say that the Kingdom is a place that works and it’s a place that has a very different vibe because it works. They’ve figured out how to feed themselves. They’ve figured out how to have a place that in many ways celebrates life. They get to be alive. They want to live. It isn’t merely about survival. There is a community there and the man in charge is somebody who embraces in some ways some of the more nonsensical parts of life. You know, he walks around with a classical royal air and yet there’s something very affirming about that. It’s theater. He’s a bigger than life character and they’re living in a way that is very affirmative of life and it’s very different from any of the communities that we’ve seen before.
