Fox, the exclusive international home of The Walking Dead, has announced the return of the series to Fox channels internationally following AMC’s Season 8 renewal. Season 8 will premiere in 2017 and will kick off with the 100th episode of the series.

Now in its 7th season, The Walking Dead returns to over 200 million international viewers in over 125 countries on Fox near simultaneously with its October 23rd premiere on AMC in the US.
“Less than a week away from this this year’s return, we are not only thrilled about Season 8, but also confident that the surrounding anticipation, combined with our unrivaled footprint and fandom, will make this season’s premiere our best yet,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, EVP of Scripted Programming and Original Development at Fox Network Group.
