Latest Trailer For The Walking Dead Season 8 Lights The Fuse

3 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Capping off a busy, busy week for The Walking Dead – banners, high-res images, and promises of resolution, to name but three – AMC has today rolled out an all-too-brief promo that essentially lights the fuse for season 8.

Clocking in at only 30 seconds in length, don’t expect much in the way of story, but we do see a number of crowd-pleasing shots of those three primary factions – namely Alexandria, the Kingdom and the Hilltop – cobbling together in the face of a common enemy.

That adversary is, of course, Negan, the demented, power-hungry maniac who ruled over most of The Walking Dead season 7 with an iron fist. And a custom-made baseball bat known as Lucille. Having gained the support of his equally crazy Saviors, Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s big bad will be a difficult one to topple, though earlier this week showrunner Scott Gimple reaffirmed that season 8 will bring a sense of »

The Walking Dead Season 8 Will Resolve The War Between Rick And Negan

20 September 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

War, war never changes – unless it involves flesh-munching zombies and a tiger by the name of Shiva.

That’s right, The Walking Dead season 8 is almost upon us, and as we’ve heard countless times now, it’s set to dive right into the beloved “All-Out War” arc from Robert Kirkman’s comics. For those not familiar, the storyline saw Rick Grimes mount a full-blown assault on Negan and his demented Saviors.

It’s a conflict that will seemingly ensure that season 8 zips along at breakneck speed, too, which ought to allay fears that the latest batch of episodes will succumb to the same pacing problems that affected season 7. However, if you’re expecting this sure to be epic battle to last long into the future, you may want to think again.

The Walking Dead Showrunner Says "All Out War" Will End in Season 8

20 September 2017 11:57 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

The Walking Dead's "All Out War" won't be endless.

In fact, it'll be over pretty quickly once it starts; showrunner Scott Gimple confirmed to EW that the war between factions led by Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) will end in Season 8.

It's a surprisingly candid

19 September 2017 2:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

War, war never changes – unless it involves flesh-munching zombies and a tiger by the name of Shiva.

That’s right, The Walking Dead season 8 is almost upon us, and if you’re still reeling from this morning’s deluge of high-res action shots, we’ve got good news: AMC has gone ahead and lifted the lid on this season’s suitably epic banner image.

Bringing together all of the show’s good guys, the star-studded spread cherry-picks all of your favorite survivors from across the Kingdom, Alexandria, and the Hilltop to create what is essentially Negan’s worst nightmare. Yes, now that Rick Grimes has struck up an uneasy alliance with the likes of Ezekiel and the ferocious Shiva, Negan and the Saviors are back-pedaling, and at least according to series showrunner Scott Gimple, the opening episodes of season 8 will leave viewers rooted to the edge of their seats.

The Walking Dead: Cooper Andrews, aka Jerry, Is the Breakout Star the Show Needed

15 September 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Walking Dead is jam-packed with characters we've all come to love and root for, but season seven introduced a new character who immediately stole our hearts. Jerry, played by Cooper Andrews, lives in the Kingdom and is an advisor/bodyguard to King Ezekiel. He's also funny as hell and able to take out both walkers and bad guys with ease. He's basically the right-hand man we all would want on our side if the zombie apocalypse ever happened. His comedic one-liners are also a much-needed relief from all of the madness happening courtesy of Negan. In real life, Andrews was a huge fan of the show before he even got the part as Jerry. He also served as a boom operator on the show before joining the cast. Executive producer Scott M. Gimple told Andrews he specifically chose him for the role because "you have this smile that when you smile, »

Season 8 Of The Walking Dead Will See Daryl “Going Rogue”

15 September 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The battle lines have been drawn.

Coming out of The Walking Dead season 7, viewers knew fine well that October’s eighth season would herald a full-blown war, and based on Sdcc’s momentous trailer (see above), AMC’s apocalyptic flagship is about to deliver on that promise.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly as part of the outlet’s ongoing Twd coverage, Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, talked more about what season 8 has in store for his gruff survivor. Last seen uncovering a mysterious figure beside the gates to Alexandria, Daryl is expected to feature prominently in October’s new run of episodes, and as Reedus tells EW, there will be numerous instances of his fan-favorite “going rogue.”

There are definite teams now. People are going to be rooting for one team or the other, and it does have more kick to it than it did. I mean, season 7 was difficult. It »

Eugene Will Help Uncover Negan’s Backstory In The Walking Dead

12 September 2017 4:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Jeffrey Dean Morgan first appeared with his barbed baseball bat Lucille at the end of The Walking Dead‘s sixth season, Negan has totally stolen the show. Still, despite the uber-villain having quite a large role in season 7, we didn’t learn anything about his pre-apocalypse past. As it stands, there isn’t much to humanize the character beyond his gleeful evil-doing.

During a special preview of the season 8 premiere that aired on Sunday, however, Morgan revealed that bits and pieces about Negan’s past will start to come out over the next run. The catalyst for this will be the unlikely friendship that will build up between Negan and Eugene, who previously betrayed the Alexandrians and switched sides to the Saviors.

“The little slivers of backstory that we’re hopefully will find out, it’s important to have someone like Josh, or Eugene, on Negan’s side. »

Maggie’s Baby Will Not Be Born During Season 8 Of The Walking Dead

12 September 2017 3:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are lots of questions that fans have going into the upcoming eighth season of The Walking Dead, and one of those is the issue of Maggie’s pregnancy. Lauren Cohan’s character has been carrying her and Glenn’s baby since the tail-end of season 6, leaving us to wonder if Baby Rhee will finally be born in the next run.

Surprisingly, The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple has given a straight answer to that question. When asked about it during Sunday’s preview of the season premiere, he replied:

“Maggie’s baby will not be born is Season 8. But anything’s possible.”

Gimple’s direct response gives us a lot of clues as to what we can expect from the new season. Most notably, it confirms that it will take place over a contracted space of time. It hasn’t been specified but, going by the fact that Maggie »

The Walking Dead’s “Explosive” 100th Episode Will Kick Off Season 8 With A Bang, Says Showrunner

12 September 2017 7:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From low-key horror adaptation to one of the biggest shows on television, The Walking Dead‘s rise to superstardom has been nothing short of remarkable.

Now on the verge of its eighth season, AMC’s flagship is also approaching a very special milestone in its decorated run: the fabled 100th episode. As things stand, the so-far untitled season 8 premiere is set to go down as The Walking Dead‘s historic century, and at least according to series showrunner Scott Gimple, it’ll set in motion a chain of nail-biting events that will leave viewers rooted to the edge of their seats for weeks to come. Eek!

While speaking to Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick as part of a Season 8 preview special, Gimple outlined how The Walking Dead‘s next instalment plans to grip fans from the off.

It sets into motion, with emotion, the next 100 episodes. It’s the fuse that lights, »

Season 8 Of The Walking Dead To Feature “Really Satisfying” Pairings

11 September 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From Rick and Shane all the way through to Carol and Daryl, The Walking Dead has treated viewers to some truly memorable screen duos over the years. And that’s a tradition series showrunner Scott Gimple hopes to honor with the forthcoming eighth season.

Speaking during last night’s Preview Special, one in which Gimple also debunked a popular fan theory concerning Rick Grimes (spoilers: Andrew Lincoln’s lead character hasn’t spent the past 99 episodes living some vivid coma dream), The Walking Dead mainstay addressed the narrative underpinning season 8, and how it’ll allow for some truly compelling interactions between the show’s major characters.

We’ll see characters affect one another that we haven’t seen affect one another before, or even just thrown together that we haven’t seen thrown together. That’s been really satisfying.

The Walking Dead Ep Promises 'Satisfying' New Matchups in Season 8

11 September 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Walking Dead is lurching into uncharted territory in Season 8. Although the buddy system may remain in effect for Rick & Co., the friends — and, in some cases, enemies — that get paired up will be anything but the same old, same old.

“We’ll see characters affect one another that we haven’t seen affect one another before, or even just thrown together that we haven’t seen thrown together,” showrunner Scott Gimple previews for TVLine. “That’s been really satisfying.”

In other words, when Rick takes off on his next mission, instead of going with Daryl or Michonne, he may »

The Walking Dead Showrunner Debunks Major Fan Theory

11 September 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With The Walking Dead season 8 fast approaching, AMC hosted a Preview Special this past Sunday to drum up excitement for the return of Rick Grimes and the crew.

Andrew Lincoln’s leader has been through hell and high water for the past 99 episodes of The Walking Dead, and at least based on comments from series showrunner Scott Gimple, not to mention season 8’s extended synopsis, things are only going to get worse before they get better.

But when it comes to Rick Grimes, in particular, one fan theory that has gripped the Internet ever since the unveiling of season 8’s first trailer suggests Lincoln’s protagonist has been in a coma this whole time. It’s one that can be traced back to the “Old Man Rick” scene, one in which The Walking Dead stalwart is seen lying on a hospital bed that is eerily reminiscent of the original medical room from Atlanta. »

‘Walking Dead’ Season 7 Streaming on Netflix

8 September 2017 3:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Season 7 of “The Walking Dead” — the most-watched show on cable — is now available to stream on Netflix.

The addition of AMC Networks’ hit zombie thriller to Netflix on Friday comes about six weeks ahead of the Oct. 22 season 8 premiere on AMC. Netflix now offers the first seven seasons of “The Walking Dead” to subscribers in the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, Brazil, Japan and several other countries.

Netflix’s deal with AMC for “Walking Dead” underscores that — for all of the streamer’s push toward original programming — it still relies heavily on licensing TV hits to attract and retain subscribers. For AMC, the windowing strategy is aimed at letting fans binge-watch the previous season, so they’ll (ideally) tune in for the next one.

The Walking Dead” season 7 finale in April was the most-watched cable TV episode of the second quarter, drawing more than 16 million viewers in delayed viewing. Even so, the »

Ezekiel Will Endure “Intense Times” On The Walking Dead Season 8; Showrunner Promises Big Arc For Carol

8 September 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you want peace, prepare for war.

That is, in essence, the underlying theme coursing through the veins of The Walking Dead in anticipation of season 8, which will see Rick Grimes mount a full-blown assault on Negan and his demented Saviors. By calling upon the communities of Alexandria, the Hilltop and the Kingdom, Andrew Lincoln’s leader is about to find himself in the midst of all out war. But he isn’t the only one in for a tough time this October.

As series showrunner Scott Gimple revealed to TVLine, Khary Payton’s Ezekiel will endure “intense times” while trying to rally his troops for the war against the malevolent Negan.

There are some intense times ahead for Ezekiel. Carol is not going to be surprised about the difficulty and brutality that they’re facing. Ezekiel is a little more new to this. The contrast [between the two] will be pretty stark. »

The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere Won’t Divulge Details On Old Man Rick Scene

7 September 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Contrary to Robert Kirkman’s initial claims, it looks like The Walking Dead season 8 premiere won’t explain the by-now famous “Old Man Rick” scene after all.

At least, that’s according to series showrunner and all-around Walking Dead stalwart Scott Gimple, who spoke to TV Line as part of the outlet’s extensive fall preview. And though it’s now approaching its eighth year on the airwaves, AMC’s apocalyptic flagship continues to pull in the big numbers for all involved, even if season 7 faltered due to issues with pacing.

That’s something season 8 will hope to rectify on October 22nd and beyond, with many of the show’s creators promising a breathless culmination to the war between Negan and Rick Grimes. Speaking of which, the inclusion of old man Rick in July’s Sdcc trailer sparked concerns that The Walking Dead would lean on the ol’ “it was »

All the Gritty Facts For Season 8 of The Walking Dead

1 September 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Before the seventh season of The Walking Dead was even halfway over, AMC renewed the show for season eight. This means we've got plenty of apocalyptic zombie horror to look forward to, all the way through mid-2018. So if you were feeling bored by the recent season's single-storyline pacing or find yourself looking far, far ahead to a time when Glenn's tragic, graphic death is a distant memory, season eight is the place to go. Let's go over what we know so far. The Season Will Kick Off With the Show's 100th Episode Typically, it's a huge deal when any TV show hits this triple-digit benchmark. It must be especially true for Twd, seeing as pretty much every season has been only 16 episodes in length. Considering this accomplishment is also a season premiere, chances are the show could pull out all the stops in a way they might never have before. »

AMC Announces The Walking Dead Season 8 Preview Special

27 August 2017 3:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

October 22nd isn’t that far away now, but fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead are beyond eager to get a look at season 8. That 5 minute Comic-Con trailer really whet our appetite and as more and more information comes to light on what the show will be bringing us this year, it’s getting harder to sit tight and wait for Rick Grimes and co. to return to our screens.

Thankfully, then, the network is here to make things a bit easier on us, as they’ve now announced that they’ll be airing an hour long preview special on September 10th at 8pm Est. For those keeping track, that’s also the same day as the season 3B premiere of Fear the Walking Dead. Suffice it to say, it’ll be a good night for fans of Robert Kirkman’s zombie universe.

New Video Highlights How The Walking Dead Characters Are Brought To Life

17 August 2017 3:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Walking Dead has always been different from other zombie movies and TV shows because it’s fueled first and foremost by its characters and their own stories, relationships and rivalries.

Usually the human cast in something like this are just there to be picked off one by one by the flesh-eating monsters. Thanks to the stellar work from the writers and the actors on Twd, though, we’ve grown to care deeply for these people over the years – which makes it all the more emotional and shocking when they meet a grisly fate.

In this new clip that’s surfaced today, seen above, the writers and producers of the hit AMC show talk about what makes our favorite characters so special and why they’re a joy to write for.

“There’s something about The Walking Dead that makes it, I think, very different from certainly any of show I’ve worked on, »
