Do you hear that? That's the sound of every other show on television trembling. Why? Because Season 8 of The Walking Dead finally has a premiere date, and it's going to hog up ratings once again.
The next chapter of AMC's zombie drama will premiere on Sunday, October 22. Like recent seasons, the full season will be split into two parts, with eight episodes airing at the end of this year, and eight more airing at the beginning of 2018.
The news was announced before The Walking Dead's panel at San Diego's Comic-Con, which goes down July 22.
AMC made the announcement with some cool Rick vs. Negan key art:
The Walking Dead returns Sunday, Oct. 22 at 9/8c on AMC.
