It’s absolutely crazy to think that we’ve been following our favorite group of survivors for nearly 100 episodes. We’ve seen them through the good, the bad and the ugly and it has been one of the best journies to be a part of. AMC has been celebrating The Walking Dead’s upcoming 100th episode, which also marks the Season 8 premiere, these past few weeks and today they gifted us with 27 behind-the-scenes photos from over the years going all the way back to Season 1.
So, take a trip down memory lane and get excited for the landmark episode airing on October 22nd!

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
