Though it remains consistently great television, there’s no denying that The Walking Dead does have a tendency to fall into a very familiar pattern of going long stretches without anything particularly eventful happening. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with character-focused drama (that is the basis of the show, after all), but when fans have been promised “all-out war” and all they’re given is a short (though admittedly, exciting) skirmish in the season 7 finale, there were always going to be disappointments.
Thankfully, things will be changing drastically this year, as Rick Grimes and co. will seemingly be put through the wringer come October, after series showrunner Scott Gimple previously warned fans that The Walking Dead‘s eighth season is poised to zip along at a brisk clip, beginning with the “explosive” premiere on October 22nd – for the record, that same episode will also go down as the show’s 100th instalment. »

Sneak Peek more new footage from upcoming Season 8 of AMC's "The Walking Dead" 'zombie' TV series, debuting its 100th episode, October 22, 2017:
"...last season, 'Rick Grimes' and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet.
"With the comfort of 'Alexandria', they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.
"Feeling powerless under the rules and demands from the repulsive 'Negan', Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn't be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the 'Saviors'. And with the support of the 'Hilltop' and 'Kingdom', they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors.
"This season, Rick brings 'All Out War' to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless...
"...but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future.

Forget flash-flood warnings — some television viewers received a much more dire alert from their televisions on Thursday. Viewers in Orange County, California, had their quality viewing time interrupted by an apocalyptic emergency alert warning of “extremely violent times” to come, the Orange County Register reports. The alert featured a male voice declaring, “Realize this, extremely violent times will come,” the paper said.

Cast your minds back to The Walking Dead season 7, specifically episode six. While on the road, Tara and Heath were attacked by a horde of zombies in their camper. Though Tara escaped, she eventually made her way back to find evidence that Heath was able to get away, though he was nowhere to be found. And that, readers, is the last time we saw the character.
Naturally, fans have been wanting to know what happened to him ever since, so it’s a relief to know, then, that Heath has been promised to return to The Walking Dead at some point in the future. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Scott Gimple said:
“We definitely have not seen the last of Heath, period. I will say that. I don’t mean to disappoint the Heathies. He will be on the show. He will be within The Walking Dead again.”

Walk onto the soundstages at Toronto's Pinewood Studios, a massive complex of airplane hangers jutting out into Lake Ontario, and you'll see transporter rooms, engine rooms and lots of vaguely futuristic hallways. A producer is giving journalists an impromptu tour, pointing out small details like the Malaysian puppets hanging in an officer's ready room and bragging about the creation processes of phasers, badges and alien races.
Walk a little further, and you'll come to a gleaming bridge. A Starfleet commander's seat sits in the middle. There are work stations on both sides, »
In exactly one month’s time, The Walking Dead will make history.
After 99 episodes of thrills, spills and apocalyptic chills, series stalwart Greg Nicotero will usher in season 8’s premiere and, by effect, The Walking Dead‘s 100th episode. Suddenly that scene in Atlanta of Rick trapped in a tank crawling with Walkers feels like a lifetime ago.
But in order to commemorate this wonderful occasion, Entertainment Weekly has gone ahead and posted a fresh batch of candid, beautifully stylish portraits in which the show’s mainstays – namely Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Lauren Cohan (Maggie) and Melissa McBride (Carol) – get the celebrations underway. As this is more of a spotlight on the actors, rather than their on-screen counterparts, don’t expect much in the way of story, but the gallery below does serve as a nice little time capsule ahead of The Walking Dead raising »

If between It and American Horror Story you're still somehow feeling a lack of things to be scared about, then Amazon has your back with its latest original programming venture. Amazon Prime Video has transformed the popular horror podcast Lore into a new anthology series that begins streaming on Friday, Oct. 13 - and that release date definitely isn't a coincidence. Produced by some of the folks from The Walking Dead and The X-Files, Lore is unique because it focuses on real-life horror stories, particularly frightening folklore. "Lore exposes the darker side of history, exploring the creatures, people, and places of our wildest nightmares," describes the podcast's website . . . and it seems like the show will be even more terrifying. With illustrations, re-enactments, and documentary-style interview footage, the trailer for the anthology series almost gives Ahs season one vibes. "This anthology series brings the podcast to life, uncovering the real-life events that spawned our darkest nightmares, »

So much attention has been paid to the “all-out war” underpinning The Walking Dead season 8 that few have stopped to ask the question: who will be sent to meet their maker come October?

With the battle lines drawn, Rick, Maggie and the rest of the gang have rallied all the troops – namely those scattered across Alexandria, the Kingdom and the Hilltop – to topple Negan once and for all. And yes, The Walking Dead‘s eighth season will resolve the battle brewing between Rick Grimes and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s unruly screen villain.
As for the subsequent body count, Gimple recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the “big deaths” to come, and how they’ll catch people by surprise. »

When The Walking Dead returns, it will be for the show's 100th episode. After the jump, you'll find an exciting new promo alongside some fresh details and fun Entertainment Weekly magazine covers »
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 »
