Although The Walking Dead season 8 premiere is still in October, details of its arrival are starting to come out. Confirmation of the upcoming season has certainly lead to continued speculation as to what is next for the popular zombie TV series.
To date, spoilers for the current season tease the possible comeback of a deceased character. Then again, fans could possibly say goodbye to a fan favorite.
Buzz About The Walking Dead Season 8 Cast
Speculation is rife about the likely exit of Sonequa Martin-Green’s character Sasha Williams. The actress nabbed the lead role in the upcoming Star Trek TV series from Bryan Fuller. Hence, the circulation of the hashtag #SashaDead topic online.
However, the actress and showrunner Scott Gimple are not about to confirm or deny these assertions. To date, Sasha’s character has grown stronger and has become a greater asset to Rick’s team.
Nonetheless, fans can expect to see Negan played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan back in The Walking Dead season 8 episodes. Then again, this might not come as a surprise to many considering his character has a strong presence in the comic series. Thus, the TV series still has a lot of material to reference about Negan, Den of Geek wrote.
Other Characters Who Might Die Aside from Sasha
Other than Sasha, Tripped Media has a couple of ideas on who among the cast might not live to see the light of The Walking Dead season 8. First on the list is Carol.
The character should have said goodbye to TWD in season 3. However, she has become a fan favorite owing to the convincing portrayal of Melissa McBride.
All the same, it appears her story is about to end as her character hints at taking a break from all the action. Yet the bigger spoiler could be the prospect of Daryl not making it to The Walking Dead season 8.
Daryl is the series sweetheart. Moreover, he is the ultimate fan favorite among the TWD cast. Hence, his possible departure would come as a major game changer for The Walking Dead season 8.
“It’s simple: Daryl doesn’t have a particular arc in the comic, so he’s hardly safe in the transition from source material to screen,” the publication writes. Hence, it poses a problem considering Gimple’s reported plan to follow the books accurately.
