Tv Season Info

Season 7 of the post-apocalyptic drama deals with the aftermath of the previous season's ending: Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) kills two beloved characters and breaks Rick (Andrew Lincoln) spiritually and Daryl (Norman Reedus) physically. Ultimately, the group of survivors can't do anything else but agree to work for Negan and his Saviors. Meanwhile, Morgan (Lennie James) and Carol (Melissa McBride) find themselves in the Kingdom, a community run by King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) that seems safe and welcoming. At Alexandria, people try to live their lives as always, though Negan's barbaric rule worries everybody. Elsewhere, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) go to the Hilltop to recover from the ordeal and to check on Maggie's pregnancy. The rest of the season is all about the three communities coming together and taking on Negan's army in an all-out war.

Critic Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 7

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

New Best Friends won't be on anyone's all-time favourite list, but it's engaging nonetheless.

It's fair to say that most of the episodes are merely filler, stretching out a season that doesn't have nearly enough material to fill an entire 16 episodes.

August 22, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Season seven of The Walking Dead has been for me one of deep emotions and trauma, and in my mind at an unprecedented level ... We all suffer from the need for extensive therapy and oh, yeah, closure.

March 28, 2017 | Full Review…

It used to be a great show that used violence as a way to advance compelling storylines. Now it's just violent, sadistic and repulsive.

October 27, 2016 | Full Review…

The Walking Dead is at impasse itself right now, and it's doubtful that the series will be able to sustain itself before it's either outright eaten or blown to kingdom come.

February 13, 2017 | Full Review…

It's discomfiting to see Walking Dead double down on misery when there's already been so much of it. Game of Thrones employs its fair share of violence and grief, but at least it takes breaks to ride dragons now and again.

Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 7



Super Reviewer


The seventh season continues to add depth in characters and chemistry despite the lackluster in intensity compared to previous seasons. The Walking Dead Season 7 gives us a memorable villain to love to hate and more raunchy violence but feels stale and with little to no memorable episodes to keep us on our toes. 3.5/5


Super Reviewer

walking dead is basically dead now.
