‘Walking Dead’ Releases Synopsis, First Images From Second Half of Season 7 (Photos)

Hit AMC series returns on Feb. 12

“The Walking Dead” will be all about the build up to war in the second half of Season 7.

AMC released the official synopsis and first look images from part two of the hit zombie apocalypse series on Tuesday.

Check out the synopsis 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.

The photos (below) do not offer much in terms of plot details, but we do get to see more of Rick, Michonne, Aaron, and Tara.

“The Walking Dead” returns on Feb. 12 at 9 p.m./8c on AMC.
