AMC announced the renewal of THE WALKING DEAD for Season 8 as well as the renewal of the aftershow, The Talking Dead.
It’s not that this is a big surprise, but probably more of a relief for many of The Walking Dead fans. To know that there will be a season 8 even before season 7 has started is just one less thing for the fans to worry about, especially since the show is stressful enough.
““Eeny, meeny, miny, more,” said AMC boss Charlie Collier today in a statement in an homage to the threat given by Jeffrey Dean Morgan-portrayed Negan in the Season 6 finale earlier this year. “What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us.”
Season 8 will consist of 16 episodes and will likely begin in October 2017.
But for now, let’s give one last look of those under the bat before we say goodbye to one of them.
