“The Walking Dead” season 7 fans may wait a little longer for its premiere on October. However, AMC more than made up for this delay by announcing that fans will be treated to two pre-season episodes.


The pre-season episodes were revealed at the recently held San Diego International Comic-Con during the Talking Dead segment.

Chris Hardwick, the host for the live hour-long talk show, was the one who dropped the major news.

Still an unnamed episode, Chris Hardwick will hold an exclusive interview with the cast and perhaps get some spoilers from the executive producers.

Moreover, the second special episode will be a look back of the six previous seasons. It is scheduled to be aired on October 16.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays as the Negan, is hinting that The Walking Dead season 7 is all about the villainous character.

“It’s a reset on The Walking Dead world. It’s fucking Negan’s world now. . . . What you’re going to see in the first half of this season is Negan wreaking havoc,” he said. “And some of your characters that you’ve grown to love are not going to be on the show anymore, and it’s going to end badly for them. It’s going to be a whole new beginning for The Walking Dead.”

The Walking Dead season 7 will return on AMC on October 23rd.
