Long-time fans of the series will be aware that Comic-Con is traditionally where the show debuts the first trailer for the upcoming season, so stay tuned for more Walking Dead news over the coming days. And Daryl's on his beloved motorcycle (which reminds me - when is Season 2 of Ride with Norman Reedus going to happen?).
They're back together at last. The #2 drama on cable in the US, Fear the Walking Dead, is executive produced by Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert, and produced by AMC Studios. And now a first-look image from Season 8 indicates some of our favorite characters are more than ready to fight for their survival.
'It was exciting to see all these configurations of characters we hadn't seen before. "Even Aaron merely giving Jerry an apple felt satisfying", he told EW.
After a season of devastation, dread and - finally - fist-pumping victory, it seems like the eighth run will continue where events left off: the all-out-war against Negan in full swing with Alexandria, the Kingdom and the Hilltop Colony all united in their mission to end the life of the villainous Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). He goes on teasing, "This is that times a million".
The reunion of these two characters follows the dramatic season seven finale, where Carol made a decision to join the battle against Negan's Saviors. Though it would be cool if the season began with just everybody giving each other apples. Daryl is (thankfully) back on two wheels and fully armed with a bow, meanwhile Carol is wearing the Kingdom's trademark armor and carrying at least two guns.
Season 8 is set to premiere in October.
