If you haven’t seen them yet, here are the new “blood red” cast portraits for The Walking Dead Season 7. When I mentioned “blood red”, it’s pretty much my interpretation of the style of the portraits, which obviously has a meaning behind it. It means death is coming!
We all know Season 7 is going to kick our faces in with a brutal premiere since one of the key cast members is going to be nicked off the show by the hands of Negan and his augmented baseball bat. It’s going to be shocking as hell, you can cleary see it on their facial expressions in the gallery right above.
The first half of Season 7 sees the group fractured, broken, bereaved, and picking up the pieces while living under the thumb of oppression. Negan will have successfully brought the survivors under his will, brutally convincing them to live under his rules with a deadly and horrific example of what happens if they don’t.
The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere episode airs on AMC on Sunday, October 23rd at 9:00pm ET.
