Any series is bound to show its age after eight seasons, but The Walking Dead might finally have begun to decompose. Sunday’s Season 8 premiere ratings were the third-lowest in the series’ history, beating only the 2010 series premiere and the 2011 Season 2 opener.
The Walking Dead Season 7 may have taken a full eight episodes to get Rick raring to fight back against Negan, but the latter half isn’t wasting any time forging alliances. Our first clip from the 2017 premiere sees Jesus proposing an unorthodox, but kingly solution to the new rebellion’s shortage of soldiers.
It only took half a season, but The Walking Dead is finally ready to “Rise Up” against Negan and the Saviors when the AMC horror flagship returns in 2017. Following last night’s trailer, The Walking Dead is seeing red in the first Season 7B key art, while Robert Kirkman teases the mystery man (or woman) spying on Alexandria in the post-credits.
‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 proves it can get “Hearts Still Beating” in a bloody midseason close, but is Rick finally ready to fight back after two more needlessly cruel deaths? And who’s that mystery man spying on Alexandria from afar? Find out in our full review!
The Walking Dead pulled few punches with 2016 closer “Hearts Still Beating,” but we’ll have to wait until 2017 to see Rick and co. finally standing up to Negan. Our first trailer for the 2017 return has arrived, as everyone from Alexandria, to The Kingdom to Hilltop finally prepares to strike back against the Saviors.
‘The Walking Dead’ greets a larger world in its latest 2016 hour with the introduction of a whole new Hilltop community and its sleazy leader, but is “Knots Untie” setting us up for a deadly conflict with the Saviors? Find out in our full review of tonight’s Rick and Daryl road show!
As The Walking Dead increasingly embraces its comic roots, fans both count down to and dread the arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan, a larger-than-life villain whose ilk we’ve not yet seen. One at least wonders how the foul-mouthed foe will express himself under AMC standards, and it seems showrunners have filmed alternate takes to accommodate his sinful swearing.
