The Walking Dead is giving us something other than Negan and his secret victim to obsess over. In the brand new season 7 trailer, we get a good look at a new character named King Ezekiel (Khary Payton). Ruler of The Kingdom community, Ezekiel is well-known among fans of the comics.
If you have zero patience and want all the comic book spoilers on The Kingdom, Hilltop, Negan and more, you can head right here.
Ezekiel looks just as badass as we hoped he would. How amazing was that clip in the trailer of him posted up next to his pet tiger? We can’t wait to see what role he ends up playing in all the conflict that’s going on.
We also got a little peek at Morgan digging at a mailbox, looking pensive and saying, “I can’t let you die out there.” Might he have been talking to Carol?
It also appears that Tara is alive and well as she ran on top of some cars. And we also caught a glimpse of Jesus and his heavenly hair slaying some walkers. Thank the AMC gods we’ll be seeing more of him.
The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Oct. 23 at 9/8c.
