To cap off The Walking Dead Season 7 Preview Special, The Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple sent a message for fans to be delivered by host Chris Hardwick.
Well aware of the repercussions from the cliffhanger delivered to cap off Season 6, Gimple is eager to address the Walking Dead faithful and promises lots of heartbreak in the Season 7 premiere in October. The upcoming season sounds horrific for those of us who are attached to the Alexandrian survivors and it's only the beginning.
Here's what Gimple had to say:
To the friends, fans, and curious, committed, the uninitiated, and the OGs, you know the beginning and it’s almost here. Enjoy your summer, because the beginning is someone’s end. But it is a beginning. What happens in episode one will shatter the lives of those who survive and will render the narrative in different trajectories. In which we will see our characters in completely new situations torn from the pages of the comic and remixed in The Walking Dead Remixnator 5000.
We’ll see all new all different worlds with new friends, enemies and other. With alignments ranging from lawful good to chaotic evil and all the neutrals in between.
We’ll see unthinkable dangers from the damnedest of places. Yes, there will be blood, but there will also be cobbler. We kid you not. There’s going to be a hard goodbye in the beginning, but you know that, and it’s almost here. As Simon says, be good to each another.
-Scott M. Gimple
