Ever since the season six finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead fans have been discussing just who was on the receiving end of Negan’s deadly bat? One character who wasn’t under the immediate threat of Negan was Morgan, played by Lennie James. Dead fans can rest assured that Morgan will be back for season seven.
In an image released by Entertainment Weekly, Morgan can be seen back in action with his weapon of choice, his stick.
Executive producer, Greg Nicotero, opened up about what will make this season of Dead so different compared to previous seasons.
“The exciting thing about season 7 is we’re really opening it up. We started in season 6 by getting a sense that the world was a much larger place. We were laying the seeds for the fact that there is a very big world out there. So, in season 7, we really get a chance to explore those worlds in much greater detail.”
The Walking Dead has major plans at San Diego Comic-Con this year. The network has often brought shows like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead to center stage in Hall H. This year, The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead, Preacher and Geeking Out will all be featured during SDCC.
The Walking Dead panel will be moderated by Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick and is likely to feature a trailer for season seven. Along with new footage, the panel will feature a number of the cast members including; Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Sonequa Martin-Green, Christian Serratos, Ross Marquand and Josh McDermitt. Also featured on the panel will be executive producer and showrunner, Scott M. Gimple, along with, Robert Kirkman. It’s also likely that a premiere date for season seven will be announced.

The Walking Dead will return on AMC this October.
