In a recent news, "The Walking Dead" Season 8 is getting closer and AMC revealed a "Talking Dead" preview special that will give fans a new extended look at the 100th episode. Producer Greg Nicotero announced that the Season 8 premiere on Oct. 22 will open with a shot of Rick Grimes.

From there, the show will remain focused on him. Nicotero stated "We start season 8 with a close-up shot of Rick Grimes, and we soon feel that he is the one who dominates the plot, not Negan," On the other hand, wrapping up with "The Walking Dead" marathon of Seasons 1-7 on September 10 will be a new Talking Dead special preview of "The Walking Dead" Season 8. The guests who will be joining host Chris Hardwick to tackle about the new season are Scott Gimple, Lennie James, and Negan himself Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

After the brutal deaths of Glenn and Abe in the Season 7 premiere, Rick and the rest of the survivors had a tough season. However, they got their first taste of victory against Negan in the season finale last year. For the first time, Alexandria and the other communities teamed up together to fight back against Negan. Together they successfully drove Negan and The Saviors out of Alexandria.

And even after the betrayal by The Scavengers, the survivors were able to win the day thanks by the help of both The Kingdom and The Hilltop. Now Negan knows that the communities are about to stand together against him. And that only means that he and The Saviors are preparing for an All Out War.

Furthermore, Scott Gimple has promised that next season of "The Walking Dead" will be packed with more action than the last season as the communities fight it out to see what kind of society is going to rule the new world.
