‘The Walking Dead’ season 8 is coming. This month we will get a trailer and a release date. In a recent interview showrunner Scott Gimple teased the huge upcoming season.
In his interview with EW, Gimple addressed the brewing war between Alexandria and Negan. He commented on the coming together of characters following the tragic losses they had and how this will develop in the new season.
“The season finale last year, seeing all the characters together interacting as one, was thrilling. It was exciting to see all these configurations of characters we hadn’t seen before. Even Aaron merely giving Jerry an apple felt satisfying.”
“[Season eight] is that times a million. Though it would be cool if the season began with just everybody giving each other apples. I’d be down with that. But it’s not that.”
We will get a trailer following ‘The Walking Dead’ SDCC panel on July 21st. Prior to the trailer, AMC will release a batch of images from the new season, view one of them below which shows fan-favorites Daryl and Carol reunited:
