There’s a lot of speculation over who died at the hands of Negan (and Lucille) in The Walking Dead’s season finale, but there is one person we do know is alive: Morgan! And we’ve got your first season 7 look at Lennie James’ character right here.
It appears Morgan is back with his trusty pole, but where is he? We last saw Morgan accepting help from two armored soldiers, but where did they take him? Those soldiers sure did look a lot like ones from the Kingdom, a community straight from the comic books run by colorful character known as King Ezekiel. If that is where Morgan is, it could play into what exec producer Greg Nicotero told us to expect in season 7.
“The exciting thing about season 7 is we’re really opening it up,” says Nicotero. “We started in season 6 by getting a sense that the world was a much larger place. We were laying the seeds for the fact that there is a very big world out there. So, in season 7, we really get a chance to explore those worlds in much greater detail.”
It appears Morgan may be doing some of that exploring up close. In the meantime, enjoy your exclusive full first season 7 look at Morgan below.
