We already know a lot about the next season of The Walking Dead: It will jump forward in time, it will be the final season for Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), and it will follow the All Out War with Negan and the Saviors.

This will also be the first season with showrunner Angela Kang, who began as a staff writer on the show in season 2.

A 25-second teaser trailer debuted at Comic Con International: San Diego (sans walkers), but now AMC also released this series of images from the new season, which begins Sunday, Oct. 7 on AMC:

The group has been through hell and back of late, but it wouldn’t hurt for someone to crack a smile once and a while.
