Tv Season Info

Season 7 of the post-apocalyptic drama deals with the aftermath of the previous season's ending: Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) kills two beloved characters and breaks Rick (Andrew Lincoln) spiritually and Daryl (Norman Reedus) physically. Ultimately, the group of survivors can't do anything else but agree to work for Negan and his Saviors. Meanwhile, Morgan (Lennie James) and Carol (Melissa McBride) find themselves in the Kingdom, a community run by King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) that seems safe and welcoming. At Alexandria, people try to live their lives as always, though Negan's barbaric rule worries everybody. Elsewhere, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) go to the Hilltop to recover from the ordeal and to check on Maggie's pregnancy. The rest of the season is all about the three communities coming together and taking on Negan's army in an all-out war.

They also have finally, in the most stomach churning, emotional way, ratcheted up the brutality of the TV series to match the brutality of the graphic novel which inspired the show.

New Best Friends won't be on anyone's all-time favourite list, but it's engaging nonetheless.

This season is all about the opening episode, once you get past that it's downhill and has a lot of stalling before it comes to a rather obvious conclusion to set up Season 8.

This entire seventh season was just the preamble to a great war. In my opinion, it was not necessary, and it was quite boring. [Full review in Spanish]

The Walking Dead is an event series that has no fear of cancellation but the dip in quality shows.

[A] laughable, thoroughly unentertaining mess of a premiere.

Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 7



Super Reviewer


The seventh season continues to add depth in characters and chemistry despite the lackluster in intensity compared to previous seasons. The Walking Dead Season 7 gives us a memorable villain to love to hate and more raunchy violence but feels stale and with little to no memorable episodes to keep us on our toes. 3.5/5

walking dead is basically dead now.
