The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere Date Announced

Ahead of the AMC series' Friday panel, The Walking Dead television show has announced a Season 8 premiere date of October 22, 2017. Season 8 will include the 100th episode of the beloved zombie apocalypse series. 

"The way we plan ahead is to live in abject terror and anxiety. It isn't about necessarily planning the 100th episode, it is sort of about planning the next 100 episodes," Showrunner Scott Gimple told Comicbook.com. "In a lot of ways, we've planned out this show into many seasons from now. The comic book affords us that and then the inspiration we get from the comic and things we want to see more of."

The Walking Dead television series from AMC is based on the popular comic book series created by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. The Walking Dead Book 14 will be releasing alongside the Season 8 premiere, and will collect issues #157-168 of the series. For more information on upcoming The Walking Dead book tie-ins, see below. For a full list of The Walking Dead titles, please visit our Edelweiss catalog.
