The zombie drama, which is currently in its seventh season, stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Nichols, Austin Amelio, and Tom Payne. AMC has already renewed the show for an eighth season.
During a recent panel at PaleyFest, executive producer Scott M. Gimple revealed the end of season seven will mark the end of one chapter and season eight will mark the beginning of an “epic tale to come”:
No, the end of this season is very much the end of a chapter. It’s very much a conclusion that promises this gigantic, epic tale to come. … The first episode [of Season 8] is, I think, less about [the fact] that we reached 100 episodes; it’s more about setting up the next 100 episodes.”
The season seven finale of The Walking Dead is slated to debut on April 2nd.
