The SDCC Trailer for Season 8 of The Walking Dead Brings War and Brighter Days

Before you watch this trailer, heed Negan’s advice and make sure you’re wearing the right pants.  We’ll wait.  Ready?  Ok, without further ado, the Season 8 trailer for AMC‘s The Walking Dead.

It’s amazing to see how much has changed over the last 8 seasons of The Walking Dead.  If you checked out after the boring first half of the 2nd season, you’ve really missed out on some of the best television today.  The proof is in this trailer for The Walking Dead Season 8. 

The SDCC trailer opens with the greatest character to have ever entered the show, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Ever since he was introduced at the end of Season 6, The Walking Dead has been an enthralling rollercoaster week-to-week and the trailer makes it look like it won’t stop anytime soon. 

To make things even more interesting, the trailer ends with an old Rick, possibly on his death bed.  It’s likely a dream sequence of something Rick envisions before the war begins, but who knows.  Perhaps, AMC likes what Vince Gilligan did with Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad, showing us the end game and how they got there.

AMC’s The Walking Dead returns for the 8th season on October 22, 2017, hopefully without us having to watch a tiger get eaten by walkers.
