We’re about a month away from the return of ‘The Walking Dead‘ and AMC has decided to release a few photos to tease us with what is to come! Not only that but the latest synopsis really gives a few ideas of how things are going to come together in the near future. With the networking teasing that Rick Grimes will cause everyone to “Rise Up” against Negan you can just tell that All Out War is going to be coming sooner than later.

First up, here’s the synopsis for the upcoming season:

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.

Not only are we going to see Rick having to talk both The Kingdom and Hilltop into teaming up against Negan but there is another group that will be showing up as well. Without the stockpile of guns our survivors once had either, there will be a whole new mess of problems for them to contend with.




It is quite clear that Rick Grimes is going to be fully in charge once again. The only question will be how well he can fake being subservient to Negan when they speak next.
