The 8th Season of The Walking Dead won’t be kicking off until late October (at the earliest) but when the show does return, fans are hoping for nothing less than balls-to-the-wall apocalyptic zombie mayhem as we delve into the All Out War story arch. It’ll be a while before we see any official behind-the-scenes pics or teasers (and even longer before we get an actual trailer) but we got our first look at Season 8 artwork yesterday via Twitter. Check it out:

The premier of Season 8 will coincide with the show’s 100th Episode, so hopefully, it’ll be a monumental event of epic proportions. Time for the coalition of Rick’s Alexandrians, The Hilltop, and The Kingdom to smash the sadistic Saviors and the nasty Heapsters! Co-executive producer Denise Huth recently dished with Entertainment Weekly about how everything is coming together.
It’s kind of surreal in a way. Back when we started, we never imagined we’d make it to 100 episodes. It seemed like such a far-off goal, it was hard to even contemplate at that time — we just wanted a second season. It’s a huge compliment, the fact that we’ve been able to grow the story and grow the show and very year it gets bigger, and bigger, and bigger. This year, that’s certainly the case as well. And add on top of it that our season premiere for season 8 happens to be the 100th episode, it makes it a really exciting way to come back. The energy here is really good. Everybody is super-pumped up and it’s particularly exciting coming off of last year where the season premiere last year was a total 180 energy-wise. It was really tough way to start the season and this year is a really exciting way to start.
