Ever due to the fact The Strolling Lifeless were given its derivative (aka prequel collection) Worry the Strolling Lifeless, enthusiasts and newshounds alike were badgering the manufacturers at the back of the 2 presentations approximately the potential for a crossover â and it sounds as if stated badgering has in spite of everything paid off.
“There are Strolling Lifeless presentations, which I am not gonna identify… However there’s one personality â that I will be able to now not identify â that may be going to head from one display… and seem within the different display,” collection author Robert Kirkman found out on the display’s New York Comedian Con panel. “What does that imply, as a result of those timelines [are separate]? Do we see a fascinating backstory of a Strolling Lifeless personality display up in Worry the Strolling Lifeless, or are we going to peer a Worry the Strolling Lifeless personality display up someday on Strolling Lifeless? Is it going to be one thing utterly other than that? I have no idea!”Â
On a extra critical word, Kirkman introduced, “Weâre very desirous about this; thereâs going to be extra information in this within the coming months… Itâs gonna be massive, weâre all very excited.”
However prior to we will be able to get to the crossover, we need to rejoin Rick Grimes and his gang in the course of “All Out Struggle,” the comedian e-book storyline that serves as idea for Season eight.
“Season 7 sucked for Rick Grimes, however Season eight, heâs for sure getting his strut again,” Andrew Lincoln previewed. “Itâs been such a lot a laugh. Itâs been exhausting as a result of each and every episode has been so large and it movements so temporarily, the tale, however weâve were given the crowd again in combination â¦ Itâs harking back to Seasons 1-four.” Even higher? We would possibly after all see the heroes get a win, after a season of whole distress.
“It is taken one hundred episodes for Rick to get a hold of a just right plan,” Lincoln stated, “and that is it.”
Negan undoubtedly placed Rick during the wringer in Season 7, however it used to be Norman Reedus’ Daryl who took the brunt of the villain’s torture. Obviously, then, Reedus says his personality is out for blood this yr.
“The bandâs again in combination and this season is 2 large groups towards each and every different,” Reedus teased. “However heâs going just a little rogue from time to time and he needs revenge.”
The Strolling Lifeless Season eight premieres Oct. 22 on AMC.
