Ahead of the San Diego Comic-Con next week, Entertainment Weekly shared the first exclusive photo from the eight season of The Walking Dead.
Based on the new photo teaser, it looks like Season 8 will reunite old faces such as Carol and Daryl, who are probably preparing for an all-out war with the Saviors and their ferocious sociopathic leader Negan. So expect to see plenty of action with both beloved characters once again be at the center of it all.
From what we know Season 8 will continue the trajectory of Season 7 in a major way. It will also build off the reunions and first-time unions that unfolded in the season 7 finale.
The Walking Dead Season 8 will return for 16 episodes in the fall of 2017, which obviously means around October.
