FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - AMC's "The Walking Dead," continues on Sunday, November 12th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The highly anticipated eighth season debuted as the highest-rated premiere of the year among adults 18-49. On the all-new episode, "Some Guy," a new weapon in the Savior arsenal proves to be a giant hurdle as fighting continues between Rick's forces and those of the Saviors.
This year, 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.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, "The Walking Dead" reigns as television's most watched drama for Adults 18-49. "The Walking Dead" tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse, and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The series is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.

In the season opener, "The Mighty Misfits Who Made Marvel," Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created Marvel Comics in the 1960s, with an emphasis on real people and social issues. But when success hit, their union fell to pieces.
