With the massive uproar caused by the trailer at the Comic-Con and the recently released exclusive first look photo, we are now blessed with four new photos from season 8 of The Walking Dead. In the photos below, characters such as Rick, Daryl, Carol, Maggie, Michonne, Tara, Negan, Eugene, and Dwight are feature in brand new photos from behind-the-scenes moments on set of the new season. Take a look here:
The official synopsis for The Walking Dead (from IMDb) as follows:
Sheriff Deputy Rick Grimes gets shot and falls into a coma. When awoken he finds himself in a Zombie Apocalypse. Not knowing what to do he sets out to find his family, after he’s done that he gets connected to a group to become the leader. He takes charge and tries to help this group of people survive, find a place to live, and get them food. This show is all about survival, the risks, and the things you’ll have to do to survive.
The Walking Dead will premiere its first new episode since Season 7 ended in April on October 22, 2017. As fate would have it, the Season 8 premiere will also serve as the 100th overall episode of the series which began in 2010.
About the new season, show-runner Scott Gimple said:
“The turn of the story is really going to dictate the structure of the story and the speed of the story. The things that they are getting into demand a more kinetic narrative. The pace is accelerated by virtue of the things that they’re up to. Though I don’t want to say exactly, anybody who watches the show can extrapolate that they’re now into public conflict with the Saviors; the battle lines are drawn. There isn’t quite as much time to dig into anything but prosecuting the war.”
Season 8 is going to be an all-out war between the Saviors and their trash-heap allies and the Alexandrians and their allies the Kingdom and Hilltop. The hit AMC zombie show will return to screens in October, with the new season set to debut in the US with the show’s 100th episode on October 16. A UK date, while not confirmed, is projected for October 29, where it’ll air on FOX.
