The Walking Dead Just Got Renewed For Season 8

Not a huge surprise, but hey -- still good to confirm.

Renewed already? Indeed. The show's seventh season hasn't even started yet, but AMC wanted to announce the renewal early. They actually confirmed through Twitter, since it's 2016.

When are we expecting it? Surely you're not in a big hurry, since, well -- Season 7 hasn't even started yet -- but it's scheduled to premiere in late 2017. Season 8 will also contain the 100th episode of the series, which is always a pretty big accomplishment.

When does the next season start again? Soon. October 23rd, to be exact. And there's a good chance that this season will end with yet another killer cliffhanger now that the crew and (presumably most of the) cast knows they'll be back next year.
