Sharpen your blades and ready your rifles 'cause it's time for all-out war.

The Walking Dead has managed to keep the hordes of me-too zombie shows at bay for a good long time now, staving off the danger of becoming as mindless as the walkers it depicts for seven successful seasons. Now it's shambling into its eighth season, and it's showing no signs of slowing down.

Season eight pits Rick and the gang against the ghastly Negan and his despicable group of "Saviors". Rounding up support from the residents of Alexandria, Hilltop and Kingdom, Rick plans on taking the war to Negan in the hopes of toppling the tyrant and his ruthless army through sheer force of will.
