I wouldn't call it a spoiler but they do show a 3 minute clip from the premiere so if you want to go in not watching a single bit of footage then yes it's a spoiler...at this point after all the secrecy about Negan's victim and locking down the set etc I highly doubt AMC would release anything spoilery this close to the Season 7 premiere...although watching that clip I guess you can remove one name from Negan's list of potential victims

Already renewed for a Season 8. Not a surprise for AMC's most popular show and one of the most popular on TV.

It was. Good flashbacks. I wonder how long that will be when the series ends if AMC did another one.

I thought they packed quite a bit into a couple hours .. you could almost begin the new season without having watched any previous season .. I wish more long running shows would do something similar ..

TV Notes (Cable)
Walking Dead gets early season 8 renewal
By James Hibberd, EW.com - Oct. 16, 2016

And why not? AMC is giving an early renewal to its blockbuster series The Walking Dead.

The zombie drama has been renewed for an eighth inning a week before the debut of its eagerly awaited seventh season. After-show Talking Dead has been renewed as well (fun fact: Talking Dead ranks as TV’s highest-rated talk show).

Season 8 will premiere late next year and kick off with the drama’s 100th episode. Current showrunner Scott Gimple is on board too.

The pick-up order was announced at the start of a two-hour retrospective on the show that aired Sunday night, The Walking Dead: The Journey So Far, which caught up viewers on the show’s storylines.

The seventh season of Walking Dead premieres next Sunday at 9 p.m., followed by an expanded 90-minute live episode of Talking Dead.

“Eeny, meeny, miny, more,” said AMC president Charlie Collier in a Negan-riffing statement. “What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us.”

I'm sure the ratings will be great but I wonder if the furor over the cheap cliffhanger will subside.

I agree that the two hour (less commercials) reprise of all the earlier seasons was very well done. I enjoyed being reminded of some of the show's many highlights. Loud, dumb, and gratuitously bloody as it always is, the show is truly exciting. Despite feeling slightly ashamed of myself, I continue to love The Walking Dead.

I deleted both hours after looking at just the sneak peaks, previews or whatever they called them.

This show doesn't have a very high re-watch value for me, I've found. There are scene exceptions, but rarely whole episodes again.

I also agree that the 2 hour recap special was well done...better then I was expecting...the Season 7 premiere is only a few days away...with a live 90 minute Talking Dead immediately afterwards...apparently 12 cast members along with Greg Nicotero and Scott Gimple will on hand as well...I hated that S6 cliffhanger ending (I think it would have been more powerful to show who got killed and spend 6 months thinking about it) but now that the premiere is nearly upon us I'm looking forward to watching it

Will the season premiere be the highest-watched episode ever ? Pretty sure it will be. I'll bet the NFL is concerned about Sunday Night Football ratings too.

I just hope they don't drag us out all the way to the very end of the first episode with stupid back stories and what everyone is thinking about while they're kneeling there before revealing who got up close with Lucille.

According to the most popular 'spoiler' page for TWD, there's no dragging it out whatsoever. The show starts with Negan swinging the bat (and they show the impact too).

Only the first season is worth re-watching in its entirety. Maybe most of Season 3 (Prison/Woodbury/Governor) too. But you're right, it's a watch once show. I've been paying for TWD via Amazon since its premiere. 83 episodes. And I'm out.

Just doesn't make sense to pay for a watch-once show. I'll wait a year for the Netflix release like everyone else.

I've done similar. I stopped buying the episodes towards the end of last season.
I mainly lost interest in Rick's group when they completely lost their moral compass --- specifically when they planned and executed their plan to kill a bunch of 'bad' people in their sleep at the TV station compound.


People try to argue that was in self-defense. I can't buy that. Self Defense isn't actively pursuing an end like that.


I liked watching the show because it was a story about the loss of human ethics in a broadly failing society. When the group that seemed to typically walk the high road took the low road -- my interest severely waived. I don't want to watch a show about a bunch of brutal gang killers where no particular group is better than the other. I liked the story of humanity being lost -- but when it was lost completely --- I felt disconnected from the series.


I still am curious who got the bat. I predicted it was Abraham - and I'm sticking with that prediction.
Abraham because the show did that brain-dead story arc where a likable character does something uncharacteristically inexcusable that the audience will universally disapprove of before he/she gets killed. It eases the conscience towards that beloved character meeting their demise. Abraham was uncharacteristically mean to Rosalie, that was his death sentence on the show. If I'm wrong, then I'll be surprised.


Unfortunately, TV and Cinema are too formulaic. The show sneak peeks and previews wanted you to believe it was Darryl. I don't think it was Darryl. But I suspect Darryl will meet his demise in the first three episodes. That way everyone breathes a sigh of relief it wasn't Darryl, and then gasp Darryl gets it. The general audience is kept off balance - which is what this show likes to do.

If I were writing this show, after creating the tremendous hype of who gets the bat, I would instead do a complete blindside and divergence from the comics and popular theory. Rick, has a concealed piece in an ankle holster, pulls it out at the proper time, shoots Negan in the forehead, pan in to his surprised face, Rick snatches his bat and caves in his head, his henchman stand there in disbelief, the forest erupts with gunfire from the unseen remaining members of Alexandria, Negan's bunch, all getting head shots and falling like rag dolls. Rick and the group stand triumphant, the tv viewers erupt in relief and intense joy. Then devise a better story line than Rick and the group cowering and devastated for who knows how many episodes to come at their loss of power.
