"The Walking Dead" is one of the most famous shows in the USA. AMC President, Charlie Collier in October 2016 confirmed that there was an eighth season of “The Walking Dead” in the making. At that time, the show’s seventh season hadn’t even premiered. The fans have been at peace while patiently waiting for additional details regarding the show.

Here is everything fans need to know

According to a report by Den of Geek, “The Walking Dead” season 7 concluded with Rick Grimes and his followers facing a confrontation with Negan and the Saviors, who are possibly the most deadly of the enemies yet.

Given how powerful Negan was, the Rick Grimes' party had to give in. They gained support from Hilltop and Kingdom, which was enough for them to go against the Saviors. This is where the seventh season ended.

The next installment of “The Walking Dead” is obviously going to pick up where it last ended. Rick and his group of survivors are going to bring the war to Negan and his troops of deadly soldiers. Therefore, the eighth season is expected to be full of glory, battle, blood, and action. The show-runners confirmed that “The Walking Dead” is going to make a comeback this year. The show is scheduled to premiere on October 22. According to a report by Entertainment Weekly, it will probably end up taking place next month.

It’s a moment of celebration for the showrunners as the first episode of the eighth season marks 100 episodes for the show.

Cast of the show plus other updates

A report via ComicBook.com reported that the major characters like Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Steven Ogg (Simon), Katelyn Nacon (Enid) and Pollyanna McIntosh (Jadis) are going to reprise their respective roles.

At the same time, TV Line reports that the viewers will witness the entry of two new characters – one will be called Dillion (sexy, young and sarcastic) and other will be called, Abbud (loner, mysterious). They will keep the fans engaged until the very end. A report by Entertainment Weekly last month published the first official picture from “The Walking Dead” Season 8.

In the image, one can see Daryl and Carol facing each other. On the basis of this, it can be assumed that a reunion is going to be shown between the two long-lost friends. Unfortunately, there is not much one could at guess through the picture. Additional information is expected to arrive with time so stay tuned for more TV series news, rumors, and updates.
