Scott M. Gimple gives a tease on what to expect on season 8 of the zombie drama

SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched the season 7 finale of The Walking Dead, “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life.”

All-out war has begun, and we have our breakdown of everything that happened in the season 7 finale of The Walking Dead. We’ve also already heard from the big casualty of the evening.

But while we look back on the big assault at Alexandria, it’s also time to look ahead. So what come next? What does showrunner Scott M. Gimple have on tap for next season? Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick asked him when the EP appeared on The Walking Dead aftershow.

“Every year you ask me that question,” Gimple answered Hardwick. “I say it’s going to be bigger, it’s going to be more intense. I say these things and I’ve meant them every year and I think we’ve actually accomplished that. This year, same thing. More intense. The first 4 episodes will melt people’s minds and break their televisions.”

So start saving now for that new TV! (I don’t know what to tell you to do with your face.) We’ll have tons more finale coverage — including interviews with key cast and producers — coming up, so follow @DaltonRoss on Twitter for all the latest Walking Dead updates.
