"The Walking Dead" season 7 premiere seems to be such a long, agonizing wait for avid followers. Thus, to fill TWD fans' hunger, series creator Robert Kirkman dropped some hints about the well-received series at the New York Comic Con on Thursday, Oct. 6.
According to Kirkman, viewers would either be very happy or very sad about the season 7 premiere. Much to the dismay of many fans, Lucille, the only thing that Negan ever cared about, would also meet its end. The TWD creator also teased fans that he knows why the zombie apocalypse started but he has no plans of divulging it.
"The Walking Dead" Season 7 Spoilers
During Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment panel at New York Comic Con, Kirkman spilled some juicy tidbits about "The Walking Dead." The creator indicated that someone from Rick Grimes' group would die, as expected. He never specified who it would be although there's a high likelihood that it would be Glenn since he died at the hands of Negan in the TWD comic book.
Kirkman makes no promises, however, and according to him viewers would either be "very happy" or "very upset" and that it is going to "be one or the other." The most memorable scene from the "The Walking Dead" season 6 finale was that of the survivors seated in a semi-circle with the sociopath Negan in front of them.
Negan will shake things up in the upcoming season by killing a character that has been with the show from the beginning. Given Negan's menacing nature, the death is bound to be a gruesome one and delivered through the Saviors' leader only love -- his bat Lucille which is wrapped by barbed wire.
When Negan goes crazy over beating someone to death, Lucille will bear the brunt of his maniacal nature. Much to the regret of Lucille's fans, the bat would finally retire from being Negan's ultimate weapon of destruction. While this may seem like a major event in the series, reports claim that "The Walking Dead" season 7 would be more intense.
Cause Of The Zombie Outbreak
For all six seasons of "The Walking Dead," many viewers were left wondering what caused the zombie outbreak. Kirkman revealed that he would not disclose the cause of the zombie outbreak in the comics or in the TV series. The TWD creator believes that it is "too sci-fi" so he would be keeping it all to himself.
Meanwhile, there have been numerous spoilers on "The Walking Dead" season 7 premiere on Oct. 23. The show will be back on AMC at a 9 p.m. time slot.
