'The Walking Dead' Premiere Title and Synopsis Revealed
The Walking Dead premieres in under two weeks, and hype is building courtesy of a chilling sneak peek and an eruption of renewed fan theorising on just who gets killed when the screen cut to black on season 6.
Now, we've got the title of the premiere, and it calls back to a poignant moment back in season 1. "The Day Will Come When You Won't Be" is a callback to Dr. Edwin Jenner's warning to Rick after the main character thanked him for giving them the chance to continue fighting on in this harsh new world.
The title is a spiritual follow-on from the finale of season 6, which shared a similarly lengthy title, "The Last Day on Earth." The synopsis reads: "Last season ended with Rick and our group kneeling helplessly before Negan and his group. What Negan does will haunt those who survive forever."
The premiere will run longer than usual and will be followed by a 90-minute Talking Dead premiere. The series returns October 23 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
