Since the premiere of "The Walking Dead" Season 7, there have been no deaths so far. While this may be a sudden shift in the series' approach to zombie apocalypse story, this could mean that the TV show is headed to an epic twist. Who will be killed off next?

TV Guide reports the runners up of "The Walking Dead" death squad for the following episodes including Heath (Corey Hawkins), Olivia (Ann Mahoney), Simon (Steven Ogg), and Spencer (Austin Nichols). Corey Hawkins accepted a lead character in "24: Legacy" so he might not have the time to film "The Walking Dead" anymore. Olivia is incompetent, and she might be next to die. Simon is the only Savior that is well-known, so if someone from Negan's camp was to die for the sake of it, then he could be it. Lastly, the annoying Spencer should die soon, concludes the report.

In a report by Comicbook.com, Chandler Riggs might be leaving "The Walking Dead" soon. Being one of the lead characters in the zombie apocalypse series with Rick, fans did not take Carl's leaving the show lightly. However, there is proof that could mean his character will be killed off in "The Walking Dead" Season 7. William Riggs, Chandler's father, expressed his gratitude to the cast and crew of the series. The post has been deleted, but retrieved by Comicbook. He mentioned that Chandler completed his 7-year contract. While the post did not mention any goodbyes, the idea of it feels like a farewell message in itself. To further support the theory, Chandler was recently accepted into Auburn University which could mean he will be leaving for school.

A list of potential deaths in "The Walking Dead" Season 7 are reported on Den Of Geek which includes Simon, Gregory (Xander Berkley), Spencer, and Heath. The report also predicts characters who will live through the season including Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Carl (Chandler Riggs), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Carol (Melissa McBride), Judith, Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), Tara Chambler (Alanna Masterson), Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Rosita (Christian Serrators), Aaron (Ross Marquand), Morgan (Lennie James), and Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam).

"The Walking Dead" Season 7 airs every Sunday on AMC.
