First “The Walking Dead” Season 8 Photo Brings Daryl and Carol Back Together

Daryl. Carol. Motorcycle. Guns. What more do you need?!

EW just got their hands on the very first photo from the upcoming eighth season of AMC’s “The Walking Dead, which will be premiering this coming October. The photo shows fan-favorite characters Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) side-by-side and presumably ready to take the fight to Negan and his Saviors.

Showrunner Scott M. Gimple told EW that Season 8 will be all about characters joining forces.

The season finale last year, seeing all the characters together interacting as one, was thrilling,” he told the site. “It was exciting to see all these configurations of characters we hadn’t seen before. Even Aaron merely giving Jerry an apple felt satisfying. This is that times a million.”

While we wait for a trailer, check out the first photo below.

    Are the ratings down yet?

      sadly no. this show has gone to shit munchie. I wish it was like season 5 I still think that was the best season.

    Does anyone still trust Scott M. Gimple? Every season he says something along the lines of “THIS SEASON IS AMAZING! IT’S THE BEST, MOST EPIC SEASON YET!” Season 6 was a step-down from seasons 3-5 and season 7 was the worst. The Walking Dead will continue its downward spiral unless AMC increase the budget and get better writers.

      exatctly. The shows writing is extremely hacky these days. They dont care though. They have their fan base and their egos are huge.

        Well they don’t have their true fan base. which is mostly us LOL the true fans who see it is shit.

      I say we fire scott this guy is a fuckin idiot and talks out of his ass more then his mouth.

    This season is going to prob blow too. They need to kill these characters off already. Do something interesting. Cut back on the sappy ass drama too. Build tension and stay with it. Don’t give us ep’s in which we get to see characters looking for shit for an 1hr its fucking stupid.

    There’s going to be a big, boring problem with season 8 unless they really play up Negan and the Savior’s competence. So far they’ve only had numbers to justify their victories and pretty much every other action they’ve made makes them look like dim-witted buffoons.

    If this is a season of fan service, “OMG Daryl and Carol killed those Saviors without a scratch because they are so bad-ass”, even more viewers are going to tune out.

    One thing to remember: it’s going to be silly as hell when there is a “War” and not a single regular cast member dies.
