The Walking Dead It was revealed at Comic-Con that Comic Book character Ezekiel will make his long-awaited debut in Season 7, it's believed he'll appear in episode 3, and he will be played by Khary Payton.
We’d love to be able to tell you that the AMC drama’s Season 7 premiere won’t be as upsetting as you fear it’s going to be. Sadly, we can’t. In resolving the Season 6 finale’s “Who did Negan whack?” cliffhanger, “we spared no drop of awfulness, no iota of misery, no scintilla of pain,” showrunner Scott M. Gimple previously warned TVLine. In other words, “it does get gory.” However, after the blood and tears have dried, as the survivors attempt to figure out how to live under Negan and the Saviors’ rule, “there’s absolutely lightness… humor… warmth,” the EP promised. “It isn’t all misery.” (Thanks, Carol!) Plus, not only has the show promoted to series regular Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan), Tom Payne (Jesus), Xander Berkeley (Gregory) and Austin Amelio (Dwight), it’s cast Khary Payton as Ezekiel, the flamboyant leader of The Kingdom — and figured out how to handle his pet tiger! So to both our heroes and viewers, it may feel like, as Norman Reedus (Daryl) put it, “a completely brand-new world” — one that’s primed for a revolution. Even when Rick & Co. find a way to endure their new normal, they’ll still “want to win back their lives,” Gimple said. Which means that they’re heading toward what, in the estimation of leading man Andrew Lincoln, is “one of the greatest showdowns… since Terminus.”
Re: The Walking Dead Looks like The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead will be crossing over soon. Little is known of the storyline that is being developed for the series and it's prequel but what is known is that one character will appear in both shows.
Re: The Walking Dead AMC has renewed The Walking Dead but with a twist, Angela Kang, who has been with the series as a writer and co-exec producer since 2011, has been promoted to showrunner replacing Scott Gimple, who has also been promoted and will oversee both The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead as the chief content officer.
