The Walking Dead - Season 8 ...
The eighth season of The Walking Dead, an American post-apocalyptic horror television series on AMC, premiered on October 22, 2017, and concluded on April 15, 2018, consisting of 16 episodes. Developed for television by Frank Darabont, the series is based on the eponymous series of comic books by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. The executive producers are Kirkman, David Alpert, Scott M. Gimple, Greg Nicotero, Tom Luse, and Gale Anne Hurd, with Gimple as showrunner for his fifth and final season. The eighth season received mixed reviews from critics. It was nominated for multiple awards and won two, including Best Horror Television Series for the third consecutive year, at the 44th Saturn Awards.
The Walking Dead - Season 8 ...
The eighth season features twenty series regulars overall. For this season, Katelyn Nacon, Khary Payton, Steven Ogg, and Pollyanna McIntosh were promoted to series regular status, after previously having recurring roles, while Seth Gilliam and Ross Marquand were added to the opening credits.
The Walking Dead was renewed by AMC for a 16-episode eighth season on October 16, 2016. Production began on April 25, 2017, in Atlanta, Georgia. On July 12, 2017, production was shut down after stuntman John Bernecker was killed, after falling more than 20 feet onto a concrete floor. Production resumed on July 17. The season premiere, which also serves as the series' milestone 100th episode, was directed by executive producer Greg Nicotero.
In November 2017, it was announced that Lennie James who portrays Morgan Jones, would be leaving The Walking Dead after the conclusion of this season, and would join the cast of the spin-off series Fear the Walking Dead for its fourth season. The eighth season also features the departures of series regulars Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes), Steven Ogg (Simon), and Austin Amelio (Dwight). Riggs' final episode is the mid-season premiere where his character is killed off, which is a deviation from the comic book, where his character is still alive. His death received negative reactions from critics and fans. Ogg's final episode is the penultimate episode of the season, where his character is killed by Negan. Amelio departed the series after the season finale, and in January 2019, it was confirmed he would join the cast of Fear the Walking Dead.
On March 15, 2018, it was announced that the season finale and the fourth season premiere of Fear the Walking Dead would be screened at AMC, Regal, and Cinemark theaters across the United States on April 15, the same day as the TV airing, for "Survival Sunday: The Walking Dead & Fear the Walking Dead". The episodes marked the first crossover between the two series. The cinema screening also included an extra half-hour of exclusive bonus content.
The eighth season of The Walking Dead received mixed reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the season holds a score of 65% with an average rating of 6.65 out of 10 based on 17 reviews. The site's critical consensus reads: "The Walking Dead's eighth season energizes its characters with some much-needed angst and action, though it's still occasionally choppy and lacking forward-moving plot progression."
For the 44th Saturn Awards, the eight season of The Walking Dead received seven nominations, winning two. It won Best Horror Television Series and Best Performance by a Younger Actor in a Television Series (Chandler Riggs). The nominations were for Best Actor on Television (Andrew Lincoln), Best Supporting Actor on Television (Khary Payton), Best Supporting Actress on Television (Danai Gurira and Melissa McBride), and Best Guest Starring Role on Television (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
The war between Rick and Negan finally came to an end on the season eight finale of "The Walking Dead." Amid, the gunfire and the bloodshed, there were a lot of references to episodes past and plenty of comic nods for fans of the graphic novels.
"Randomly, people ask me all the time if the 'A' stands for anything, and I was like it just means 'a--hole," said Kang on the show's season seven Blu-ray commentary for "The Cell." "They're being juvenile. Like an a------ and an 'F' and 'S' for f---face and s---head."
Serratos welcomed a child with singer David Boyd on May 1, which was the first full day of shooting on the forthcoming season, so producers had to get a bit creative to incorporate her character in Season 8.
"There will be a notable sort of Rosita-lessness early on," Gimple told EW. "She did get shot at the end of the season, so she was recovering from that, but she's back and she got back actually pretty soon, and she's terrific. So, timing-wise, we missed Espinosa a little bit, but she was healing up from her wounds at the hands of the Saviors."
The new season is poised to present an "all-out war" between the Alexandrian allies and the Saviors, but instead of simply trying to survive in the zombie apocalypse, Rick Grimes & Co. are ready to carve out stable lives for themselves once and for all. So, even though Rosita may have been injured in the skirmish with the Saviors at the end of Season 7, there's no doubt her soldier skills and unshakable determination will be essential to that effort.
So, it was obvious that Jerry would make an appearance again at some point, and he showed up at the right moment. Jerry is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of him as the season progresses.
Fans knew that Fear would return sometime this year as a behind-the-scenes teaser released late last year confirmed this, before a trailer for all of the new and returning TWD Universe spinoffs implied that it would likely return in early 2023 (as both Fear season 8 and The Walking Dead: Dead City were grouped together as though they are the next installments in the TWD Universe).
Now, the new announcement has revealed that Dead City will premiere in June, likely airing after Fear season 8 completes the first half of its run. The second set of six episodes will air later in 2023.
The Walking Dead premiered on AMC in October 2010. While later seasons arguably did not measure up to the Golden Globe-nominated first season, the series has proven to be lucrative for the network. Fear The Walking Dead was the first spinoff series, followed by World Beyond and Tales of the Walking Dead.
Beforehand, Fear The Walking Dead season 8 will conclude the story with two six-episode parts, the first of which premieres on Sunday, May 14, 2023. This next phase of our beloved Walking Dead franchise promises to engage and enthrall faithful viewers," said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios at AMC Networks, in a statement, "Fans new and old will love seeing zombies walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, beneath the Eiffel Tower, inside the Louvre, and at dozens more exotic and iconic locations from around the country and world."
Shh! The Whisperers were introduced in the ninth season, but they really take off in Season 10 when the battle between these zombie infiltrators and our human heroes officially begins. Thanks to creep-tastic performances by Samantha Morton (Alpha), Ryan Hurst (Beta) and Thora Birch (Gamma), the Whisperers were brought to life on our TV screens on a weekly basis.
Season 9 of The Walking Dead is just around the corner on AMC and Netflix has finally announced when season 8 of The Walking Dead will be streaming on Netflix. We can also confirm that you will definitely be able to catch up before season 9 starts airing on AMC.
Season 8 starts with an exact, almost shot-for-shot recreation of the opening of the very first episode, but this time it's Carl instead of Rick looking for gas in a field of abandoned cars. At the time, this just seemed to be a neat way of showing how the characters have grown and changed over the course of seven years, and that Carl was now Rick's equal as a survivor. But it now carries an extra poignancy, establishing Carl as the character around which the season's biggest moment will later revolve.
It was clear from the very start of Season 8 that there was some terrible tragedy awaiting Rick. There are frequent shots of his weepy eyes throughout the entire first half of the season, plus murmured voiceovers about mercy overcoming wrath. While we didn't know what was making Rick so sad or when it would occur, it was clearly a big deal. The Walking Dead frequently kills off major characters without any prolonged build-up, so this event was going to rock the show.
If previous seasons are any indication, an October 2017 premiere date would be the best bet. In fact, if you were watching AMC during the finale's telecast, you would've heard those assurances from the network's surly narrator, who informed viewers than The Walking Dead will be returning in October. A more formal announcement from AMC will likely happen over the summer, perhaps once the spinoff series Fear The Walking Dead makes it return in June.
That's some lofty expectations for the new season, but if season seven's finale is any indication, they may be able to deliver on it. We'll keep you updated if anything changes, but for now, get ready for The Walking Dead to return in October.
