The Walking Dead: Season 8 Plot Synopsis

The official The Walking Dead: Season 8 plot synopsis has been released by AMC. The synopsis pretty much tells the viewer what they already view because of the ending to Season 7 of The Walking Dead and the trailer for Season 8. Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Hilltop, and Alexandria are going to war with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors. It will be all out war with the army that Rick built vs. the army that Negan built.

The official plot synopsis for The Walking Dead: Season 8:

Last season, Rick Grimes 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 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 leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.

The upcoming season for The Walking Dead will feature the 100th episode for the horror TV series. Fans of The Walking Dead television series will get a sneak peek of the eighth season when the Fear the Walking Dead returns for its mid-season premiere for its third season, entitled “Minotaur,” on September 10, 2017.

The Walking Dead: Season 8 also stars Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, and Christian Serratos.
