THE WALKING DEAD Season 8 Gets A Premiere Date And Awesome New Poster

When The Walking Dead premieres this fall, it will be with its 100th episode! Hit the jump to find out when the show returns to AMC and for a very cool new teaser poster featuring Rick staring down Negan.

The first trailer for The Walking Dead season eight will debut on July 21st when the series returns to Hall H in San Deigo for its yearly Comic-Con panel. In the meantime, we have a very cool new poster for the show featuring Rick Grimes staring down Negan with pretty much every supporting character. 

As you can see, The Walking Dead will return to AMC with its 100th episode on October 22nd. This news is surprising, not because of when the show is coming back but because it's often reserved for the panel itself at Comic-Con! It's set to be a star-studded affair with plenty of stars in attendance. 
 
Those confirmed as being present so far are Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Seth Gilliam, Alanna Masterson, Khary Payton and Chandler Riggs, and they will be joined by executive producers Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert as well as showrunner Scott Gimple and creator Robert Kirkman.

In The Walking Dead comic books, Glenn met his maker in the 100th issue so it remains to be seen if the show will feature a similarly shocking death. What do you guys think? Share your thoughts below.
