The Walking Dead will solve the mystery of Old Man Rick around the time of season 8’s midseason finale. If there’s one thing AMC and the TWD creative team have proven themselves masters at in the last few years, it’s creating anticipation for the return of the show.
Thanks to The Walking Dead season 8’s trailer – which debuted back at San Diego Comic-Con – though, there has been another big question on fans’ lips as the premiere draws closer and closer: What’s the story with Old Man Rick?
Whatever the explanation for Old Man Rick ends up being, all signs point to the journey getting there being one of the most casualty-filled in the history of The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead season 8 premieres October 22 on AMC.
