Comic-Con: The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere Date Announced

Ahead of the official kick-off for San Diego Comic-Con, AMC has released special Comic-Con art for both Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead, confirming that the show’s 8th season and 100th episode will premiere on Sunday, October 22nd. Check out the new art below and any fans of the series in San Diego can head to MLK Park (across from the convention center) for a sprawling outdoor activation space that will feature interactive experiences for fans of both shows.

In the second half of Fear the Walking Dead Season 3, the Clarks and Ottos have secured an uneasy truce with the Nation. Former enemies must find a way to survive together. Tension mounts at Broke Jaw Ranch as their militia is decimated, resources are scarce and the Dead are encroaching. The Gonzalez Dam, a source of life, is a larger prize to the south. Strand has hit rock bottom and needs a partner to harness the world’s only currency if he is going to be resurrected. Meanwhile, Daniel has become el soldado again and bides his time in service to Lola and the dam, but hasn’t given up the ghost of Ofelia. The series returns Sunday, September 10.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead reigns as television’s most watched drama for Adults 18-49. The series is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.
