We are now exactly one month away from the season premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Fans are already excited to see some important questions finally answered, but don’t expect to find out Heath’s (Corey Hawkins) fate until the next season.
While speaking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Scott Gimple revealed that fans are not likely to reunite with Hawkins as Heath – at least for season 8.
“Not a huge chance. But we definitely have not seen the last of Heath, period. I will say that. I don’t mean to disappoint the Heathies. He will be on the show. He will be within The Walking Dead again.”
Based on Gimple’s comments, Heath is still alive and will certainly return to the show in the future. With the actor having filmed some scenes for the end of last season and the cancellation of 24: Legacy, it seems likely that we will eventually see Hawkins return to the role.
What do you guys think? When do you think we will see Hawkins return to The Walking Dead? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead.
Here is the synopsis for season 8:
This season, Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.
Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.
The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Nichols, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Tom Payne, Austin Amelio, Xander Berkeley, Pollyanna McIntosh, Steven Ogg, and Katelyn Nacon.
The Walking Dead season eight premieres on October 22, 2017, on AMC.
10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.
Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles. Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet. Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing. Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.
