Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – “The Walking Dead” Season 7 opened with a brutal killing of two of the main characters of the AMC hit series and according to new reports, the second half of the season will be toning down the violence due to the backlash.
The Parents Television Council was not happy about the graphically violent first episode of “TWD” Season 7a and during a panel discussion of the show at the NATPE conference on Wednesday, executive producer Gale Ann Hurd said that the adjustments have been made for the upcoming episodes of the series. Hurd added, “We were able to look at the feedback on the level of violence. We did tone it down for episodes we were still filming for later on in the season.”
However, fans believe that the show got a little boring towards the midseason premiere of “The Walking Dead” Season 7B . The show has a comics and most of the scenes there are violent. In the midseason premiere, Negan was seen cutting the guts of Spencer but this has not been violent enough for the fans of the series.
“The Walking Dead” Season 7 dipped to the show’s lowest rating since season 3 and it is possible that this is because of the new approach in the show. It is unclear how less violent the show would be.
“TWD” Season 7B will be returning this February 12 at 9 P.M. on AMC. The finale will be on April 2. It is unclear if the violence will also be toned down in the show’s spinoff , which is “Fear The Walking Dead.” “Fear The Walking Dead’s” third season has no premiere date yet.
