Though the makers of The Walking Dead has revealed about different vibes in the second part of Season 7, the darkness and violence will not take a back seat yet!
A few days back, showrunner Scott Gimple had said that the second part of The Walking Dead Season 7 would have a very different vibe from what it had in the first part. However, it looks like the darkness and violence will not take a back seat.
AMC just released fourteen new posters from the second half and going by the looks of the posters, it feels like the episodes are going to be pretty grim and violent, reports Yahoo. The teaser posters are very cryptic and each seems to tell a different story. There is no caption around the photos. Only a general statement for the season as a whole saying that worlds collide, prepare to rise up and fight Sunday, Feb, 12.
This is the same date when the show returns with its second part and the words definitely seem to have an undercurrent of violence and gore. Fans have been trying to decode the cryptic posters and numerous assumptions are floating around.
The poster with cracked nuts has made some question if Carol will be baking another batch of cookies while the one carrying melons makes some wonder if Negan will smash more heads like Glenn's. The lantern, bundle of dynamite, bike, the upside-down bucket, bloody handprint, decaying corpse and lone walker with grocery cart; all hint at intriguing drama.
This is not just for the second part of The Walking Dead Season 7, it also applies to the next five seasons that are still to come. If fans remember, Robert Kirkman made statements about the zombie series stretching to five more seasons, claims Digital Spy.
He said that it took the show 6 seasons to get to 100 and it will not take 6 years to get to 200 and that will take them to The Walking Dead Season 12. If the show still manages to go strong till Season 12 that would be about the most amazing thing ever.
Well, Kirkman does seem to have a vision but it has been generally observed that viewers lose interest in a show when it begins to inch into the double-digit mark. The Walking Dead Season 7 also witnessed a drop in ratings when the blood and gore became too much to handle.
The Walking Dead Season 7 returns to AMC on February 12.
