Last season’s cliffhanger left fans highly anticipating what comes next on The Walking Dead. Now that the season seven premiere is fast approaching, there has been a lot of speculation going around.
Aside from what’s to come in terms of plot, The Walking Dead premiere is set to last an extra six minutes longer than any regular episode.
Why? Well, there are several theories that Negan will take his first victim in the first episode of season seven and the extra minutes could be used to pay respect to that character. There’s also been speculation that Negan could kill Glenn. And from a recently released clip, we know Rick Grimes is safe.
The episode will air on AMC on October 23 at 9/8c and will be followed by Talking Dead at 10:06 pm ET. It could just be that there are more commercials, but six minutes worth of extra commercials, while probable, is most likely not the case here.
Last season’s cliffhanger begged the question: Who did Negan kill? Actor Chad Coleman weighed in about the episode and the possibility of there being more than one character death.
“I think there’s one more surprise person. I think for the first time they’re going to kill two major characters in one episode.”
Why do you think the episode is longer? Who do you think Negan will kill? Sound off in the comments below.
