AMC Renews ‘The Walking Dead’ For Season 8


The Walking Dead fans are currently panicking about who dies in the Season 7 premiere, but everyone at AMC is already thinking ahead to Season 8.

The network has officially renewed the zombie blockbuster for another 16-episode season, to the surprise of absolutely no one with eyes and a Twitter account.

The Season 8 premiere will actually mark a huge milestone for TWD: its 100th episode.

Although we already know the upcoming Season 7 opener will be a doubly-deadly rollercoaster ride, Season 8’s Fall 2017 debut should be just as emotional.

Negan’s TV execution of a Walking Dead hero will go down this Sunday, October 23 — a whole 16 episodes ahead of its 100th.

But in the comics, the baddie carries out his execution in the 100th issue.

Since the show will have to live up to the comics’ must-see legacy, the TWD crew will be sure to offer something even bigger than finding out Negan’s unlucky victims for its centennial.

Daryl Dixon’s portrayer shared a photo of his Boondocks Saints character holding a gun to Negan’s head.

He captioned the fan-made image, “Hell yeah.”

At least that means we can pretend the Walking Dead group is saved by a pair of twin Boston vigilantes for a few more days.

The Walking Dead Season 7 premieres Sunday, October 23, at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
