With The Walking Dead set to return this February, we’ve got our first look at the mid-season premiere with some new footage. The mid-season premiere, titled “Rock in the Road”, is going to focus on Rick being introduced to a new community. The footage, courtesy of AMC, features the remaining survivors meeting Ezekiel in the Kingdom. Another new tidbit focuses on Dwight running down in a hallway, presumably escaping some sort of calamity. You can check out the new footage from the international TV spot below.
You can check out the full synopsis for season 7B below.
Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose – to defeat Negan – it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.
It was also recently revealed that executive producer Greg Nicotero will be returning to the directing chair this season. He previously directed the season 6 finale and the now infamous season 7 premiere.
The Walking Dead will return on February 12th at 9 p.m ET on AMC.
