Walking Dead Season 8 to Begin in October
The Walking Dead Season 7 ended on April 2 and showrunner Scott Gimple is already teasing the next season.
Scott Gimple told fan show Talking Dead: “The first four episodes will melt people’s minds and break their televisions.”
The Walking Dead Season 8 begins in October, with the series premiere also marking the show’s 100th episode.
“It’s gonna be bigger, it’s gonna be more intense. I always mean that, but this year it’s the same thing – more intense,” Scott Gimple said.
Unfortunately, there’s one character who won’t be progressing to season 8.
Viewers watching Season 7 finale on April 2 will have seen Sasha fail to make it out of the episode alive.
Sasha’s death had been predicted by some fans after it was announced in December that actress Sonequa Martin-Green would be joining Star Trek: Discovery.
There was speculation Sonequa Martin-Green wouldn’t be able to juggle major roles in both shows, but her character’s fate was only confirmed on Sunday.
Sasha joined the show in Season 3 as Tyreese’s sister, but her character was never in the comic book series.
