AMC will air a two hour The Walking Dead retrospective ahead of the Season 7 premiere. Titled The Walking Dead: Journey So Far, the special will air from 9-11 PM on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016 featuring interviews with cast members and producers as well as clips from important episodes across all six seasons.
Season by season, from the moment Rick wakes up in the hospital (as told by Andrew Lincoln), all the way to the excruciating first swing of Negan’s bat (told by Jeffery Dean Morgan and others in the lineup), the story of The Walking Dead will be told by those who have lived it. The Walking Dead: Journey So Far gives viewers who have never seen an episode of The Walking Dead a chance to get all caught up on the plot, characters, locations, and unique terminology of the series as well as providing fans who’ve never missed a moment with fresh interviews with the series’ producers and their favorite actors as part of an exciting refresher course that will further whet their appetite for the new season.
The show stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton and Austin Nichols.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Xander Berkeley, Austin Amelio and Tom Payne have all been promoted to series regulars for season 7, which begins on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 9PM EST on AMC.
