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.
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.
