AMC Reveals When The Walking Dead’s Last Stand Will Begin

Published

on

Last night “The Walking Dead” took one of its biggest detours yet from the storyline of the comics on which the series is based, but you won’t find any spoilers here aside for a peek at the show’s midseason return trailer.  In addition to the video, we have confirmation of when Episode 8.09 will be airing… read on for the details of when our survivors’ last stand begins!

Season 8 of “The Walking Dead” resumes on Sunday, February 25th, at 9/8c.  While you wait, if you’re not totally caught up, you can binge all the latest episodes on AMC.com or the AMC app.

Season 8 Synopsis:
Last season Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.

Feeling powerless under Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors.

This season Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.

Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.
