The Walking Dead’s eighth season is almost here, and AMC has released a new key art of the cast as they get ready for war… or shall I say, “All out war.”

As you can see in the full key art below, Rick Grimes and all the characters have their weapons ready, including Shiva’s fangs and Jesus’ fists. Even Gabriel looks like a threat with the assault rifle in hand.

The Walking Dead Season 8 premieres on Sunday, October 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In addition, the premiere also marks the show’s 100th episode.

“The Walking Dead” Season 8 Synopsis: Last year, Rick Grimes and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be. The introduction of Negan and the Saviors broke our group.

Feeling powerless under Negan’s rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough fire power to contest 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.

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.
