"The Walking Dead" Producer Promises 'Larger World,' New Characters for S7

"The Walking Dead" producer and makeup supervisor Greg Nicotero has opened up about the next season of the AMC horror hit, revealing that we'll get a sense of the larger world the series inhabits, and meet some new characters, in the upcoming seventh season.

"We're really going to get a great sense of a larger world and what these different communities are like, who the people are that are there and what they have to offer, so for us, it's very exciting," Nicotero said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. "The scripts are fantastic. You know, the first episode, obviously, was pretty intense and pretty brutal, and pretty sad and emotional and definitely a challenge for everybody involved to sort of take us to this different place, but the show has a lot of really unique flavors to offer."

Nicotero teased, "I think it's safe to say that we're going to get a chance to meet a lot of new people."

"The Walking Dead" returns Sundays this fall on AMC.
