The Walking Dead Renewed for Season 8 by AMC


‘The Walking Dead’ will extend the apocalypse into Season 8

With less than a week to go for The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere, AMC announced that there will be a Season 8 too! Starting with the series’ 100th episode, the 16-episode Season 8 is expected to go on air sometime in October 2017.

The highly anticipated Season 7 premiere of the zombie apocalypse blockbuster is driving fans crazy as they wait to find out who was killed by Negan, in the Season 6 cliffhanger finale. The show has been playing up the uncertainty largely since then, primarily because the identity of the victim who was killed off in the same scene in the comics, is well-known (don’t worry, we won’t spoil it for you!).

But we can definitely rule out the main character Rick Grimes as he was confirmed as a survivor in the trailer release at Comic-Con New York, last week. Watch the trailer right here;

Here’s what show’s executive producer Greg Nicotero, has revealed about Season 7 of The Walking Dead;

“The main thing about Season 7 is establishing that the world isn’t what everybody thinks it is, the world out there. At the end of Season 6, Rick was so confident. ‘We’re just going to knock out that outpost, we’re going to fuck these guys up before they fuck us up,’ and it ends with him going, ‘Heh, oh well, I had no idea. What I perceived as the world is not even close to what the reality of the world is,’ and Negan’s there to show him that.”

The Walking Dead Season 7 debuts with “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be” episode on October 23. This is one Season Premiere you cannot miss!

The second episode of The Walking Dead Season 7 will be aired by Fox on October 24 at 9pm. Stay tuned for more updates and enjoy this live interview of Jeffery Dean Morgan (who plays our favorite villian – Negan on the show), right here –
