THE WALKING DEAD Season 8 Trailer (Video)
AMC has debuted the first footage from The Walking Dead season eight at San Diego Comic Con.
Season seven of the hit zombie drama saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the Alexandrians under the submission of the bat-wielding Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), leader of the oppressive Saviors. With the involvement of neighboring communities — the farm-like Hilltop and the newly introduced Kingdom, lead by King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) — Rick lead an uprising against Negan and his savage collectors, with Alexandria, the Hilltop, the Kingdom, and the Sanctuary headed for all out war by season’s end.
The network unveiled the season eight key art ahead of the trailer reveal, announcing The Walking Dead will return for its eighth season premiere — the series’ 100th episode — on Sunday, October 22nd.
AMC cancelled all press events at the annual convention, retaining only previously planned panel and autograph sessions. Last week, stuntman John Bernecker died after suffering a fall during shooting on the new season. Fear The Walking Dead, returning to AMC September 10th, also debuted the trailer for the second half of its third season.
