AMC has released an extensive synopsis for the remaining part of Season 7 and Season 8 and it is being called All Out War. The title All Out War is a direct reference to the name of the story where Rick gathered a collection of communities together to battle the tyrannical Saviors.
The show looks to be bringing in many of the same story elements and characters that were in the comic version but with some new twists.

Synopsis for The Walking Dead season 7 mid season premiere
The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.
Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. 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. 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 (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable. We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before.
We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.
All Out War Comics
Spoiler Warning for those who do not want to know what happened in the comics.
Rick is brought to the community to meet with Ezekiel by Paul Monroe where the leaders of each community create an alliance to take down the Saviors. Dwight a Savior mole is also there and joins in the pact with the other leaders. Rick brought several people with him to Alexandria including Michonne. Ezekiel immediately takes an interest into the warrior woman. She initially scorns him but after a friendly and flirty chat begin to see each other romantically.
Eziekel later leads a group of Kingdom warriors and saves Alexandria from a siege by the Saviors. The Kingdom force catches the Saviors force by surprise and saves the town. Negan manages to escape this battle and Rick initially wants to give chase. Ezekiel warns Rick away from this tactic though due to the Saviors still possessing superior numbers.
The leaders of the communities then begin to create an attack plan to take down the Saviors for good. They continue to debate whether or not if they can trust Dwight. This uncertainty lasts throughout the war.
Rick leads an attack on the Savior stronghold of Sanctuary. The noise from the attack creates a massive horde of zombies around Sanctuary. The communities then leave sanctuary to attack the other Savior bases while the main force of Sanctuary is cut off.
Rick manages to take down a Savior base. Ezekiel splits off to take down a different Savior base. Ezekiel's attack ends disastrously with many of his men and Shiva being killed. The battle between the Kingdom and Savior forces had lured over a massive horde of zombies who divert the Saviors from Ezekiel's location. While the zombie horde allowed Ezekiel to escape he became trapped within the horde himself. Shiva took down as many zombies as the tiger could but eventually was surrounded and killed by zombies.
A grieving Ezekiel seeks comfort of Michonne. He tells her about the disastrous attack, the loss of his men and of Shiva. He tells her that he no longer wants to be a leader. Michonne responds to this by punching him in the face and calling him a "Pussy". She says that he is still being trusted by families in the Kingdom to lead and needs to man up and do so. When Alexandria is attacked Ezekiel wants to flee but Michonne convinces him to stay and fight.
All of the remaining survivor unite at the Hilltop where the three communities can gather their forces and avoid being taken out by the Saviors individually. He fights alongside the survivors at the final battle at Hilltop.
During the final fight forces from Rick blindside Negan and Dwight also turns on him. Rick then begins to Negan of his plan to rebuild the world working together. Negan believes this sounds amazing and puts down his guard. With Negan's guard down Rick takes the opportunity of slashing Negan's throat. Negan falls to the ground and the remaining Saviors surrender.
While Negan is wounded by Rick, he is not killed. Instead, Negan is kept in a cell. His presence is something of a curiosity as the communities grow. In Negan's absence Dwight is appointed to run the Saviors and helps maintain the peace between the communities of Alexandria, The Kingdom, The Hilltop and Sanctuary.
