The Walking Dead Season 8
The Walking Dead returns this year for its 8th season, and the latest trailer promises a wild ride. In addition to the varying factions, including Negan’s ironically named The Saints launching battles against each other, the trailer rounds off with a significantly aged Rick Grimes in a bed. The series has remained accurate to the book so far, the apparent time skip included. This means readers will see their story come to life, and even with fore knowledge, should expect more of the amazing work from the cast and crew. There is also hints that a major character will die this season.
Book Accuracy In Film And TV
The Walking Dead is one of the few if not only series to maintain the story and plot that the author has created. Most movies and shows, notably Harry Potter, Hunger Games, True Blood, and current series Game Of Thrones all deviated from the original story early, with Game Of Thrones currently proceeding ahead of the next book on its own path. For many media fans, the biggest annoyance is a series or film where screenwriters tend to exclude too many key points, thus leaving the story with plot holes, or at best, a completely different story.
The draw of The Walking Dead for readers and even newcomers is that the writers see a great story and make use of it. Combined with the talented cast and crew, this show is a gift that keeps on giving. We look forward to the season 8 premiere. Do you think that Season 8 will continue to raise the bar? Do you think the story will stay true to book as it progresses? Who do you think will die this season? Tell us in the comments!
