For the second time this year, The Walking Dead Season 8 is taking a brief hiatus from production. Hurricane Irma has forced a number of Georgia-based productions to close up shop for the time being, including CW series and several Marvel blockbusters.
There’s no lingering mystery The Walking Dead Season 8 needs to wallop with a baseball bat; just the “all out war” promised in our fall premiere’s new synopsis. Read for yourself, as Season 8 finally sees Rick ready to take the fight to Negan, along with a little help from his friends.
Walking Dead comic fans have a general sense of what’s coming in Season 8, but Fear remains as unpredictable as ever in the back half of Season 3. See for yourself in a new featurette for the September return, as Broke Jaw Ranch becomes a powder keg under a tense alliance.
It’s easy to chalk up ex-Walking Dead showrunner Frank Darabont’s legal battles with AMC to growing pains, but it’s something else when all Walking Dead producers turn on the network. AMC has been slapped with lawsuits from Robert Kirkman, Gale Ann Hurd, David Alpert and Glen Mazzara, all alleging similar profit-scheming.
Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has booked plenty of gigs outside of AMC, but his newest move is bound to ruffle some feathers. Amazon has signed Kirkman to an exclusive overall deal for the next few years, along with Dead company Skybound Entertainment.
Any fan of The Walking Dead knew changes were coming with the war against Negan, though the Season 8 trailer seemingly spoiled a major twist ahead. Or perhaps not, as Robert Kirkman teases Season 8’s October premiere will introduce us to the older Rick glimpsed in the footage.
If there’s one reliable staple of Comic-Con this past decade, it’s a new Walking Dead trailer to bring down the house. Season 8 is here to kick-off “All Out War” between Rick, Negan and all the factions stuck in-between, so check out the first official trailer!
You’ve only days to wait until The Walking Dead unleashes its first trailer for Season 8 at Comic-Con 2017, but why not get a head start? Literally, as heads are all over the new Season 8 key art, which also sets an October premiere (with a little Fear thrown in).
The stunt community and loved ones of Walking Dead performer John Bernecker endured a tragic loss over the weekend, as an on-set accident hospitalized the stuntman and led to his death. The series naturally shut down production on the eighth season, but has since (temporarily) resumed.
Seven years in, The Walking Dead was bound to conflict with fan-favorites taking other work. AMC’s horror smash usually takes precedence, but according to recent reports, at least three Walking Dead favorites will have reduced roles in Season 8.
