After being sent through the ringer during The Walking Dead season 7, Rick’s group is ready to retaliate. After a small victory during the season 7 finale, Andrew Lincoln says season 8 will be a lot more “fun.”
“I think it’s going to be a lot more fun season eight, pitted against him with a bit more push back.”
Lincoln also spoke about how season 7 pushed him in regards to acting like never before.
“I mean, the thing that I’ve always been so thrilled about playing this role is the writers and the gang at AMC have always been very keen on pushing it in different directions and exploring different areas of who Rick Grimes is, which has been one of the great thrills. This has been one of the more unpleasant aspects of his psyche, this submissive version, but certainly the first eight would be not a pleasant experience but it was a great challenge. A good acting challenge. And certainly I enjoyed having a bit more bite, bit more grit in my belly, sharing scenes with Jeffrey Dean Morgan.”
Well I think all the fans are excited to see the war against Negan continue, but hopefully with a bit less filler.
