Hey, "Walking Dead" fans. We've got super great news for you guys as we can officially tell you that a new season 8 is definitely on it's way. AMC is our source, and they actually delivered the announcement way back on October 18th, 2016, which was before season 7 started up. That's how confident they were in their number one, freaking show. During their announcement, they didn't give us a specific premiere date, but they did say, it's scheduled to start in late 2017. We're guessing it'll be given another mid-October premiere date, so definitely look for it around that time.
