    Is the woman in the lower right hand corner of the FTWD poster Lola or Luciana? Seems weird that Luciana spent most of the season unconscious and then just…left

    Can’t wait love them both.

    Happy the premiere date for The Walking Dead’s new season have been announced! Good poster for the new season. I can’t wait to see the trailer for the new season on Friday! Good poster for the 2nd half of Fear the Walking Dead’s latest season.

    This annoys me because TWDs late October start affects AMC Fear Fest. Instead of more horror movies, they’ll do a TWD marathon filling up the schedule. And lately the Fear Fest schedule is already lacking great horror films.

    Love that poster! I’m so excited for season 8. Just a few days until we get the first trailer! And this year they’ll actually get to show us some good stuff, unlike last year where the marketing revolved around that stupid cliffhanger…

    WhooHooo on both counts. Rick vs Negan is gonna be awesome and FTWD finally hit it’s stride. A bit disappointed that they killed off *spoiler* (haha won’t say) in the Fear mid season finale but I can see why it had to happen.

    @Grey … That’s Lola (the woman from the dam) between Jake and Ofelia (in braids). No sign of Luci.

    Can’t wait for the S8 trailer. Really LOVE the poster Rick vs. Negan the war is on and I hope team Rick will get rid of his ass and his minions!!!!!

  9. Sherry says:

    Love the Walking Dead. Need some positive in there for Rick and company, say knock Negan down a peg or two, I’d like to see him beg! Still my fave show!

    I work part time, unspecified days”BUT” never on Sunday evening while it’s TWD season. I have been on a roller coaster of emotions since I’m got hooked. BEST SHOW EVER!!! I’m 66 years old so not just some teeny sitting in front of the tv.

  11. Karen DeCourcy says:

    The last few episodes of FTWD were the best yet. Faster paced, more excitement, more zombies. Looking forward to the next season. Ruben Blades character is going to be a force to deal with. TWD returns Oct 22. Can’t wait! Rick vs Negan will be epic. Not much said about Glenn’s baby this past season. Will he/she arrive soon?

  12. Terri Durham-Stone says:

    I’m so excited for the show Walking Dead season 8. Having to wait to see what’s in store for everyone is really hard.
    It’s my favorite show.
