Whoever Negan killed will be at The Walking Dead Comic-Con panel in San Diego (scheduled for Friday, July 22, at 1 p.m. in Hall H). We know this because AMC is bringing out the entire line-up of death: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Sonequa Martin-Green, Christian Serratos, Ross Marquand, and Josh McDermitt.

They’re also bringing Negan himself, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, as well as producers Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, and David Alpert. Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick will moderate.  Here’s what else you need to know heading into TWD’s big Comic-Con appearance.

Where we left off: Seriously? Do we really need to go over that again?

What we know about season 7: We’ve already given you the exclusive first two images of the season, of Negan and Morgan. Exec-producer Greg Nicotero also told us that we’ll get a deeper look ino Negan’s army, the Saviors. “The Saviors, as sadistic as they may appear, they have a system that works for them,” says Nicotero. “Yeah, they’re f—ed up and they’re a little weird, but they’ve been doing this for a long time and they have a very large group. It’s not like it’s a pocket of 10 or 12 people. They have a good thing going and the most interesting thing about them for me is there’s mythos involved with them. It’s like, you hear about this guy Negan, just like you hear about this guy Rick, and you hear about these people. There’s a lot of that involved in season 7.”

What to expect at the panel: Besides seeing the cast members and producers, fans will get their first look at the season 7 trailer, which will no doubt be studied as intensely as the Zapruder film for clues as to who was on the receiving end of Negan’s baseball bat, Lucille. Happy hunting!
