Answers to Old Man Rick on The Walking Dead Will Come Sooner Than You Think... 👀👴🏻
The latest trailer for the next season of The Walking Dead left fans with a ton of questions—mainly, what the hell was going on at the end of it? Fans of the original comic have a clue what’s going on, and soon the rest of us will too...by the end of the first episode.
At the end of the season eight trailer, released during San Diego Comic-Con, we see a bearded, older, and softly lit version of Rick wake up in bed, echoing his wake-up to the zombie apocalypse during the series premiere. This left audiences with a ton of questions. Are we getting a time jump? Will Rick survive the war with Negan? Or, worst of all, is this just a stupid dream sequence?
Executive producer Robert Kirkman revealed that audiences will find out the truth (or something very close to it) in the very first episode of the season. Speaking with reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour (as shared by Entertainment Weekly), Kirkman teased out that answers are on their way and we won’t have to wait until the end of the season to see old man Rick emerge from his slumber.
“I’m pretty sure you’ll learn in the first episode what that means,” Kirkman said.
