“The Walking Dead” Season 7 is at the peak of airing its last episode. Whether who survives in the seventh franchise and lives through the eight isn’t still known. Yet, reports and speculations about its eight season are becoming rampant once again.

According to Den of Geek, to no surprise, the hated by many “The Walking Dead” villain Negan played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan confirms his return in the next season. “I know I will be on board for Season 8,” he said. The no surprise came from based on Robert Kirkman’s comics wherein Negan still continues to haunt remaining survivors for fifty issues more.

Charlie Collier, who is the President of AMC, AMC Studios and SundanceTV said in a statement that “What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott M. Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans.” He then added that more important is to thank the fans who are still keeping up with the team in bringing the comics into life.

Hence, “The Walking Dead” Season 8 is confirmed before its seventh Season breaths its last. Speaking about survivors, Siver Times noted that fans are still worried about when and how would Daryl Dixon’s character, Norman Reedus will die. Some fans also know that Norman’s standing in the popularity of the series made him a survivor throughout the Seasons alongside Rick Grimes’ role of Andrew Lincoln.

Another death in “The Walking Dead” Season 8 still horrors some fans. But, if Norman were to die, fans speculated that it would be honorable like sacrificing himself to save Carl or Carol on the brink of death. Also, the 100th episode of the series is guessed to mark the unforgettable possible death of Norman. Nonetheless, the majority of “TWD” fans wants him to survive the entire series.

“The Walking Dead” Season 8 is expected to still horror viewers in the fall of 2017. The horror series is then said to only have 16 episodes. For the meantime, fans could watch the remaining episodes of its Season 7 Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
