If you type the words The Walking Dead on social media or into internet search engines, you’ll see that now more than ever, fans are divided on the series and its future. Some are still die-hard fans of the series while others think the show has lost its touch.
No matter what, we’re thankful for the series and Scott Gimple recently sent out a tweet that shares that sentiment. Not only is it fitting for the time of year when we’re all a little more grateful, it also marks the end of shooting for season 8. Not only did the cast and crew make it to an incredible 8 seasons, they celebrated their 100th episode, and they aren’t stopping there.
The Walking Dead began shooting its eighth season this April and the season returned to AMC on October 22nd. After Sunday’s episode, there are only 2 left in 2017. While we never really look forward to the break between episodes, we have to say currently – we’ll welcome it. There’s a lot going on that we have to process!
All that aside, Gimple’s Tweet really struck a chord with us.
Thanks and more thanks and gratitude and awe and thanks to the fine band of spiritual siblings who make the Walking Dead program, giving it all they’ve got. That is a wrap and you are remarkable. It’s a privilege to fight alongside you.

The Walking Dead brings fans across the world together and no matter what our opinions are, or aren’t, many people give themselves to making this series what it is. For that, we’re thankful also.
Production for season 9 of The Walking Dead is set to begin in 2018.
