AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is about to begin its seventh season on Sunday, Oct. 23. But ahead of its premiere, the cable network has just renewed the show for another season, regardless of how it’s going to perform in the ratings. “The Walking Dead” Season 8 is expected in October 2017.
“What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us,” AMC president Charlie Collier said, per The Hollywood Reporter. The renewal will include the show’s 100th episode. “The Walking Dead” remains AMC’s most-watched TV show and its longest running series.
Meanwhile, “The Walking Dead” Season 7 will finally reveal who really meets his unlucky fate against the villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in the most-awaited premiere this Sunday. Eleven potential characters are likely to fall and fans have been speculating on who is going to die since the show’s Season 6 wrapped up back in the spring.
Rumors have it that not one but two characters are going to end up dead in the season opener. There will be 16 episodes in total for “The Walking Dead” Season 7, half of which will be airing in the mid-season after the winter break.
“The Walking Dead” stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Danai Gurira and Chandler Riggs. It has spun off the series “Fear the Walking Dead,” also on AMC, as well as the talk show, “Talking Dead.”
