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.

Critic Reviews for The Walking Dead Season 7

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

Jeffrey Dean Morgan's portrayal of Negan embodied everything I love in a villain.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It used to be a great show that used violence as a way to advance compelling storylines. Now it's just violent, sadistic and repulsive.

It was TWD's way of saying that seven seasons in, it's still got a lotta killin' to do, so hang in there.

Oct 24, 2016 | Full Review…

The most devastating episode in the history of The Walking Dead also vaults the show forward with more momentum than ever before.

Oct 23, 2016 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

If AMC wants The Walking Dead to last for years to come, as its producers say, it needs to kill Negan, and quickly. And it needs to learn from the mistakes it made during his seemingly endless tenure on the series.

It's fair to say that most of the episodes are merely filler, stretching out a season that doesn't have nearly enough material to fill an entire 16 episodes.

Aug 22, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Season seven of The Walking Dead has been for me one of deep emotions and trauma, and in my mind at an unprecedented level ... We all suffer from the need for extensive therapy and oh, yeah, closure.

Mar 28, 2017 | Full Review…

The Walking Dead is at impasse itself right now, and it's doubtful that the series will be able to sustain itself before it's either outright eaten or blown to kingdom come.

Feb 13, 2017 | Full Review…

It can be dull, or miserable, but not both -- and definitely not for this long.

Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 7

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
