Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

The zombie blockbuster "The Walking Dead," is getting renewed for eighth season by AMC networks.

Starting with the series' 100th episode, the 16-episode eighth season will debut in late 2017 - with a more-than-likely October premiere date, reported Deadline.

"Eeny, meeny, miny, more. What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott M. Gimple and some of the hardest- working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us," AMC president Charlie Collier said, emulating Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Negan.

"The Walking Dead" season seven will premiere on October 23 at 9pm.
