The trailer for The Walking Dead season 8 was released today, first shown to the audience in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con. Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) seems pretty sure those watching will need their “shitting pants.”
An all-out war between the Saviors and Rick and his crew is teased in the trailer, including, of course, zombies, zombies, and more zombies, some strangers to us and others bearing a distinct resemblance to characters we know. Michonne is still alive, staring angrily in a car and Rick looking worried. The trailer contained very little dialogue for the first half, just an instrumental beat.
An all-out war between the Saviors and Rick’s crew is brewing
Then, in the second half of the trailer, we hear Rick give a wartime speech: “That bigger world is ours, by right. Those who use and kill, we end them. Everything we’ve beaten, everything we’ve endured, everything we’ve risen above, everything we’ve become — no matter what comes next, we’ve won. We’ve already won!”
The Walking Dead season 8 is set to air on AMC on October 22nd.
Correction July 21st, 6:16PM ET: This article has been updated to reflect that Rick, not Negan, is giving the wartime speech.
