The Walking Dead: New Season 7 Trailer Shows “The Reign of Negan”

We’re only six weeks away from The Walking Dead season 7 premiere and as this new promo trailer shows, it truly is set to be the year of Negan.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s character made a brief but memorable appearance at the end of season six, which ended with him killing a beloved member of Rick’s group off screen, leading to intense fan backlash and months of speculation over the victim’s identity. While this trailer definitely doesn’t reveal that identity, it does offer a glimpse of what to expect from the world according to Negan.

We don’t really see much other than Negan having a blast and seemingly loving his new position as ruler of both the Saviors and the Alexandrians, but hey, a whole season of Morgan chewing the scenery as an unhinged tyrant sounds pretty fantastic.

The Walking Dead returns October 23rd.
