The Walking Dead‘s seventh season wasn’t a high point for the series. But it did have its moments — and most importantly it set the stage for the war between Rick Grimes’ friends and Negan in Season 8.
We’ll have to wait a few months to find out exactly how that battle will play out, but the series’ creative team, including executive producer Scott M. Gimple, have already revealed a few key details about the upcoming episodes. Here’s everything we know about The Walking Dead so far.
Season 8 begins with a landmark episode
It seems like only yesterday that The Walking Dead premiered on AMC and brought to life the gory, terrifying world of Robert Kirkman’s zombie apocalypse. But here we are, almost seven years later, and the series is on the brink of a huge milestone. The eighth season premiere will be The Walking Dead‘s 100th episode. And it looks like the creative team plans to mark the occasion appropriately.
In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, actor Andrew Lincoln said the Season 8 premiere will be, “one of the greatest episodes we’ve ever attempted.” Whether that means more exciting effects or some huge emotional moment remains to be seen. But regardless of how the episode plays out, it’s an enormous accomplishment for the entire cast and crew.
