The Walking Dead Season 8- Trailer, Release Date, Cast and Everything You Need to Know

The Walking Dead Season 8 returns later this year after an explosive season 7 finale. Here is everything you need to know about the new series including its release date, cast, and latest news.

AMC officially ordered an eighth season of its monster hit in October 2016, before the seventh season had even launched.

AMC and FOX have confirmed when The Walking Dead will be returning to television screens.

Key art from the upcoming eighth season confirms that the zombie drama will return for its 100th episode on Sunday, October 22 on AMC in the US, and on FOX in the UK on Monday, October 23 — so, just a little over three months to go now!

The poster shows Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) staring down the villainous Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) teasing the war that commenced at the climax of season seven.

{Spoilers} What will Happen in The Walking Dead Season 8?

The Walking Dead season 7 left us on the brink of all-out war between Rick’s motley crew of survivors and Negan’s savage Saviors. While the show has some way to go to match the Lucille-swinging brutality of the Walking Dead season 7 premiere, things are bound to get more explosive and tense as The Walking Dead season 8 kicks off. That’s without even mentioning the Z-word.

The show creator, Robert Kirkman, has also commented that in season 8 “we’re trying to do a more fast-paced season, a more action-packed season, really focusing on momentum, and we feel like over the first seven season we kind of set all of the characters into place, and now it’s time to break them to a certain extent”.

Given that Season 7 ended with a battle between the Saviors and Rick and his allies — including Ezekiel and his Kingdom cohorts and the good people of the Hilltop (plus Gregory) — it’s a safe bet that some, or all, of Season 8 will revolve around the storyline known as “All Out War” in The Walking Dead comics. The two-volume collection of comics (volumes 20 and 21, issues 115-126) finds Rick, the Kingdom, and the Hilltop attacking Negan and the Saviors at the Sanctuary, where they trap Lucille’s owner. But things take a bad, bad turn when Rick and company go after the Saviors’ other outposts, allowing Negan to plan his own attack on Alexandria.

The extensive trailer for the show’s next season may have debuted a shocking time-jump showing an older version of Rick, but many fans have now spotted another moment from the comics which could appear in season eight.
