We’re just over two weeks now from The Walking Dead Season 7's return, and whether or not you buy Andrew Lincoln’s passionate defense of the first half, Season 7B doesn’t appear to be wasting any time. See for yourself with a brand-new round of photos from February 12 premiere “Rock in the Road,” along with one of those ever-cryptic synopses.

AMC released a fresh batch of photos from the upcoming return (h/t FlickeringMyth), mostly showcasing Team Rick as they make their plea to Gregory, and find their way back to Alexandria. We also know that Rick will meet a mysterious junkyard gang (potentially answering our boots question), while the unsurprisingly blunt “Rock in the Road” synopsis reads:

Rick is introduced to a new community.

For a more complete picture of Season 7B, here’s the extended synopsis:

The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.

Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose - to defeat Negan - it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.

We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.

Take a look at the back half of The Walking Dead Season 7 below, and stay tuned for more.
