Thankfully, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. AMC has already announced that the hit AMC zombie survival drama will return in October, but that long wait will have some great milestones to help break it up.

According to, the date the official season 8 trailer to be released at Comic Con International in San Diego, California has been determined by looking at the available information.

Comic Con international runs from July 20th through 23rd at the San Diego Convention Center. While the official site hasn’t released the schedule, Comic Book reports that The Walking Dead will be taking over Hall H of the convention center on Friday.

If that information is correct, that means the trailer for season 8 will be revealed on Friday, July 21, 2017.

There should be an intense amount of excitement for the upcoming season of AMC’s zombie drama. After spending most of season 7 telling the story of Alexandria and the surrounding communities building up the strength to fight back again Negan and The Saviors, season 8 will finally feature that action.
