AMC releases a new The Walking Dead teaser for season 8 showcasing Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes rallying his group of survivors against Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). The finale of season 7 saw the Alexandrians preparing for war against Negan’s saviors with Ezekiel’s troupe arriving and prepared for an epic battle.

While this new promo has Rick promising that no matter what happens, the Alexandrians have already won, there are a number of other forces at play here that will make season 8 of The Walking Dead tougher than ever for Rick’s team. They’ve become something entirely different than any of them thought it could be and stand united, but the show itself teases that “what comes next ain’t gonna be pretty.”
AMC’s new promo was unveiled on Instagram and certainly hints that things are going to kick into high gear instantly. After looking over just where Rick has been the past eight seasons, as well as giving fans the first glimpse of an older Judith, Rick’s rallying cry is set to scenes of him and Daryl teaming up again, and a mysterious shot of a long hospital corridor. The Alexandrians have beaten a lot over the past eight seasons but their biggest obstacle, the writers of the show, have more tricks up their sleeve that Rick and company are going to have to face.
“The Walking Dead” Season 8 premiere — its 100th episode — airs Sunday, October 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
