The first footage of Judith from the eighth season of The Walking Dead has been revealed in a new Rick-centric teaser for the AMC series.
The trailer adds to Rick's pep talk to the group as they ready themselves for battle against Negan and the Saviors. As revealed during Comicbook.com's visit to the set of the show's 100th episode, the war might be marching to Negan's front door in the Season 8 premiere.
"The world is ours with everything we've beaten, everything we've become," Rick says in the preview. "No matter what comes next, we've already won!"
Check it out below, as posted to The Walking Dead's official Instagram account.
"But what comes next ain't gonne be pretty," the video is captioned.
"We ended 7x16 with Negan standing in front of the Sanctuary saying, 'Okay, we're going to war.' Everybody's kind of there and ready to go," executive producer and director of Episode 8x01 Greg Nicotero said. "So, I would say this is by far the most propulsive season premiere that we've ever done in terms of setting the stage for knowing that we're in the war."
"The narrative itself is incredibly propulsive, and it cuts around quite a bit," showrunner Scott Gimple said. "The characters are all mixed up, and just the circumstance doesn't really dictate this sort of slow... I do not say that in any sort of pejorative way, but this quieter side story with characters. It's just, so much of it is just going forward and working against the clock, and racing each other towards objectives and towards victory."
The Walking Dead's sibling series Fear the Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9 pm ET on AMC. The Walking Dead will return for its eighth season on October 22, 2017. The Season Eight premiere will mark 100 episodes overall for the popular AMC series. For complete coverage and insider info all season long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.
