'The Walking Dead' Getting Two Specials Prior to Season 7 Premiere
Announced at Comic-Con, two The Walking Dead specials will air on AMC ahead of the October 23 premiere date for season 7.
The first special will air on August 14, a week prior to Fear the Walking Dead's return with its final lot of episodes for season 2. This special will preview the upcoming season. On October 16, slotting between the end of Fear and beginning of The Walking Dead, a second special will recap the six seasons so far.
Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick will take over the hour-long preview special, which will include exclusive interviews and behind the scenes looks at the new episodes. The recap won't be such an event, we can assume, though it will surely remind us all of what we've lost along the way.
