Negan and King Ezekiel are as different as two leaders could possibly be, and the presence of both characters will no doubt be a major factor moving into season 7 of The Walking Dead. To tease the presence of these pivotal figures, AMC has revealed a teaser video showing Ezekiel, Shiva, and the Kingdom, as well as new key art promising that Negan and Lucille are "just getting started."

The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere episode airs on AMC on Sunday, October 23rd at 9:00pm ET:

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” is executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse."
