The latest teaser trailer for the midseason return of AMC’s zombie apocalypse drama “The Walking Dead” sees Rick’s team fermenting a plan to overthrow Negan’s reign and return the land back to “the good people.”

“Rock in the Road,” the ninth episode of the show’s seventh season, marks the return of “The Walking Dead” from its midseason hiatus. The episode promises to introduce Rick to a new community as the crew starts building numbers to take on their most immediately threat, the bat-wielding psychopath Negan.

Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl on the show, said his character will be in “kill mode” when the show returns, on the hunt and looking for vengeance. Despite season seven’s gory premiere, “The Walking Dead” executive producers Scott Gimple and Greg Nicotero said the show has not dialed back the violence in the wake of the backlash, despite reports claiming otherwise.

“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC for the second half of its seventh season on February 12 at 9 pm ET/PT. “The Walking Dead” stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Melissa McBride as Carol Peleteir, Lauren Cohan as Maggie Green and Danai Gurira as Michonne.
