‘The Walking Dead’ mid-season teasers are for all you Olympic haters out thereOn February 13, 2018 by Lucius
Let’s face it, the Olympics may not be for everybody, but at least there’s The Walking Dead to welcome you back with open arms once the Winter Games are over. (Also: Watch the Winter Olympics, though!)
AMC made a series of teasers for the return of The Walking Dead Season 8 for those of us who just don’t really get the whole hype around the Olympics or can’t be bothered to learn the intricacies of these sports and games we’re supposed to be invested in every four years. The spots, which you can check out exclusively below, will run on Tuesday and feature everyone’s favorite characters from The Walking Dead.
This one is for people who couldn’t care less about curling:
This one is for people who can’t be bothered to figure out figure skating scoring:
And this one is for people who aren’t going to take the time to learn about all the different events for skiing.
Warning: Spoilers for Season 8 of The Walking Dead ahead.
In the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead Season 8, Carl Grimes was shockingly bit by a walker, and his story will likely end in the mid-season premiere on Feb. 25 at 9 p.m. ET.
The premier will be an extra-long episode — 82 minutes —to give Carl a proper send-off. Carl is one of only a handful of characters who have made it since the first season of the show. His death is particularly shocking given the fact that Carl was never bit by a walker in the comics that the show is based on.
There are still eight episodes left in Season 8, including the mid-season premier titled “Honor.”
