The Walking Dead Adds Two New Characters for Season 7
The Walking Dead will see a beloved cast member killed off in the premiere of season seven, but as it turns out, there will be two new characters to take his or her place. TWD is adding two new characters in the new season, both of whom seem to be original characters.

According to TV LineThe Walking Dead is adding two female characters to the mix, although it's unclear whether they're regular or recurring characters. The first, Naomi, is described as "a grandmotherly type who, having lost so many loved ones, is now willing to do whatever it takes not to have to bury any more." The other, Jennie, is an optimistic teenager who is described as "kind, with a world-weary toughness," and somewhat similar to Beth. Naomi also sounds pretty similar to Carol, so if she weren't eliminated from possibility for the person who died at the end of last season, we'd be pretty worried about her. As it stands, she'll probably just serve as a philosophical foil to the newly-redeemed Carol.

In addition to Negan, this season will introduce several iconic comics characters from the Hilltop Colony, including Ezekiel (and maybe his tiger), but these characters don't seem to have any connection to the comics. Perhaps they will turn out to be versions of comics characters that are re-named to avoid spoilers, but we'll just have to wait and see.

The Walking Dead returns for season 7 on AMC this fall.
