Hopefully the trailer that was released during the Comic Con International: San Diego got you all geared up for the new season because the moment is finally here. If you missed the trailer just click on THIS LINK to catch up and then sit down at 9pm (depending on your location) and tune into AMC as “The Walking Dead” returns for Season 8. I’ve added some S7 premise below the intense poster and will close out with some brief thoughts after the casting is recanted.
Season 7 Overview: This season adapts material from issues #100–114 of the comic book series and focuses on the oppressive group of survivors known as the Saviors, led by the vindictive Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Negan uses numbers, power and lethal brutality to coerce Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), his group of survivors, and the Alexandria Safe-Zone to make regular offerings of supplies and weapons for the Saviors. Eventually, Rick and his group seek allies to help them confront Negan, including members of the survivor communities of the Hilltop, the Kingdom, Oceanside, and the Scavengers, who have had their own dealings with Negan and the Saviors.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Not much to add from me on this one but I am still watching and felt that the last few episodes of Season 7 made it all worthwhile for me. Let’s face it, there are a number of episodes which feel like the same show over and over when nothing happens. Since its become such a water cooler show, I’d suggest staying off of Facebook as it airs if you cannot watch since there is always someone out to ruin it for the rest of us. Closing up, even though we are at the tail end of the month, if you are a comic book collector you might want to see which Image Comics variant editions might still be available as the comic company that gave us the series is doing homage covers to the grim tale and I lined them out in THIS POST. So are you still watching or do you read the comic series? Chime in down below in the comments section but please NO SPOILERS if you should be checking this post later on in the evening. See you next time.
