Zombies and tigers star in new 'The Walking Dead' season 7 trailer

The next season of "The Walking Dead" looks grrreat thanks to King Ezekiel and his tiger. See more in the Comic-Con 2016 official trailer for the AMC show.

Remember when zombies were the only danger to our favorite characters on "The Walking Dead?"

Now the crew is up against new foes in season 7, premiering on AMC on October 23. The new trailer, which debuted Friday at San Diego Comic-Con, has more of the newest villain Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who made his debut on the show by killing a yet-to-be-revealed member of the gang in the last season's cliff-hanger finale.

Fans also get a first look at a fan favorite from the comic: King Ezekiel, played by Khary Payton, and his pet tiger Shiva.

"A former zookeeper who now carries a scepter and calls himself King, Ezekiel lords over a community named the Kingdom," Entertainment Weekly revealed on Friday. "He is known for having no love for Negan and the Saviors, and he could prove to be a valuable ally to Rick (if he's still alive) and his friends."

Season 7 of "The Walking Dead," which contains 16 episodes, will be split into two parts. The first eight episodes air in the fall and the second half will debut in February 2017, according to Variety.
