Does a Two-Hour ‘Talking Dead’ Mean Death or Triumph For ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 8?


AMC is planning a major Talking Dead event for The Walking Dead’s Season 8 premiere.

What does that mean for the zombie drama’s much-hyped 100th episode?

We have a few ideas.


The massive two-hour event will air live from the Greek Theater in L.A.

Basically the entire cast is expected to attend, reports.


A similar event was hosted following the shocking deaths of Glenn and Abraham in Season 7 Episode 1.

The season premiere post-mortem (pun intended) last season was appropriately held in L.A.’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery.


2016’s supersized Talking Dead was not short on content.

There were character deaths, abductions, and a new Big Bad to discuss. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the same for October’s event.


In fact, we’d wager it’s quite the opposite.

The hype for Season 8 has been one of joy and celebration.


The cast and crew have fully embraced their 100 episodes and have given nothing but love to the fans that helped them get there.

It is entirely possible the start of the war will see plenty of bloodshed.

But we also expect retrospectives, a look to the future, a focus on the new tone of the story, and a continued celebration of the series thus far.


But let’s not forget the big comic book deaths we could witness in the course of the war.

Eric and Shiva’s war efforts prove fatal in the books.

Also, Morgan and Carol’s attempts to live peacefully could spell disaster for them in the next season.
