We'll do our best to update this article with official information as it arrives.

The Walking Dead Season 8 largely revolves around Alexandria's all-out war with Negan and the Saviors. Key characters are captured and major deaths heavily impact both sides of the battle. Even though Season 8 was one of the lowest-rated seasons in Walking Dead history, it's full of action-packed sequences that diehard fans will appreciate.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. local time.
