The Walking Dead returns next month, but we’ve got some news about the second half of the season to hold you over until then.

On Tuesday, AMC released new intel about the second part of season 7 and TWD fans should be both excited and scared.

According to the official synopsis reported by Entertainment Weekly, the second half of the season won’t be about Negan’s rise to power. Instead it’ll be about taking him down!

The next eight episodes of the series will find Rick’s group again faced with a world that is different than they originally thought.

“It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose — to defeat Negan — it won’t come easy,” the AMC synopsis reads. “More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel and Gregory do not want bloodshed.”

AMC also explained that new survivors will be introduced in very different places.

“We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before,” the network explained. “We’ll see treachery from people we trust.”

The Walking Dead returns to AMC on February 12, 2017.
