Things are getting real for fans of The Walking Dead. The premiere is less than 30 days away. Plans are being made for some fans to head to LA to watch the 100th episode at the Greek Theater, others are planning on attending Walker Stalker in Atlanta the next weekend, but everyone is planning on watching the premiere some way, somehow. It’s redemption we’ve been waiting on, and season 8 is bringing it.
With every interview, photo, behind the scenes look, and trailer we receive, our excitement builds, and today a new teaser trailer was revealed that shows a bit more of the ‘All Out War’.
In the 30 second clip, we see Rick rallying the troops to come together and defeat Negan. The manpower and the heart and the drive of the group is going to take him by complete surprise, and we can’t wait to see it.
At one point, Rick commands the troops and tells them that they all have a chance to survive, but it’ll take ending lives to do it.
Listen, all of you have a chance to survive but those who use and take and kill, we end them.
King Ezekiel follows up with a strong statement of his own, encouraging his loyal followers who have always seen him lead with peace.
This journey will not end in retreat.
Sometimes, the only way to is through, and to get to the end – Negan must be defeated, or at least subdued, and a war is the only way to make that happen. They’ve tried everything else.
The trailer premiered exclusively today with ComicBook.com and you can watch it here.
The Walking Dead’s 100th episode and season 8 premiere airs on October 22nd on AMC.
