Here is that announcement from a Tweet shared from the official Twitter account of The Walking Dead:
The season 8 premiere is the 100th episode of the show.

What Scene Will Be Recreated
There are so many iconic scenes and images from the first 7 seasons of The Walking Dead it’s hard to narrow down what the recreated scene might be. It could be the scene that surprised everyone in the SDCC trailer of Old Man Rick opening his eyes. But whatever scene it is it’s sure to be one that made a big impression on fans.
Giving Back To The Fans
AMC has been pulling out all the stops to celebrate The Walking Dead’s achievement of reaching 100 episodes. They launched a fan rewards program. And they are giving away 10 all expenses paid trips to The Walking Dead season 8 premiere and live taping of Talking Dead in LA to fans who submit their Walking Dead inspired fan art.
A New Era
It’s a nice tribute to the first 100 episodes that Greg Nicotero will be recreating one of the scenes from earlier in the series. Aside from being the 100th episode of The Walking Dead the season premiere is the start of a new era for the show and for the characters that fans love.
Facing a threat bigger than any they have ever gone up against will bound the survivors more tightly than ever and inspire them to make even bigger sacrifices for each other. The Walking Dead season 8 premieres on Oct 22nd so be watching for that recreated scene during the premiere.
