Walking Dead Fans: There’s only one more day to wait for the Season 8 premiere, which also coincides with the series’ 100th Episode.

Official Synopsis: Last season, Rick Grimes [Andrew Lincoln] and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.
Feeling powerless under Negan’s [Jeffery Dean Morgan] rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together with other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough firepower to contest the Saviors.
This season, Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.
Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie [Lauren Cohan] leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel [Khary Payton] leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.
