The Walking Dead is back for its most explosive season yet with Rick going up against Neagan. Netflix will be carrying The Walking Dead season 8 but as always, you’ll have some time to wait until that’s a possibility. We’ve also had more news recently about The Walking Dead on Netflix which you won’t want to miss.
Netflix themselves haven’t really explored the zombie genre as such so The Walking Dead fills a big hole that’d otherwise be vacant. The series has always enjoyed being on Netflix as well as plenty of other AMC shows until AMC pulled the plug a few years back. The show is among AMC’s biggest hits only having Breaking Bad to rival it in popularity.
Season 8 brings us to one of the most intense seasons yet. We’re set to see all war break out between Rick and the Saviours headed up by Neagan. Once again, walkers play less of a role in the show as seasons progress but they still play an important role.
Season 8 Netflix Release Date
Note: This only applies to Netflix in the United States
Every year, Netflix releases the latest season of The Walking Dead routinely in September meaning that season 8 of The Walking Dead will arrive in September 2018. Why not sooner? That’s just the way the deal was set up and for the most part, adding the show to Netflix allows people to catch up before the new season begins on AMC itself.
Will The Walking Dead Leave Netflix?
As you may know, 2017 has been a bit of a rough year for shows from other providers on Netflix with Fox and FX pulling their library. AMC also pulled out of their Netflix arrangement a couple of years back meaning their newer shows, like Fear The Walking Dead hasn’t come to Netflix.
We do, however, have good news about The Walking Dead’s future on Netflix. So long as AMC keeps producing seasons for the show, Netflix will continue getting them. This snippet of information was released in an investor chat where they broke down the details of the AMC agreement.
