Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride), Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), their badass weapons, and Pookie's badass bike are back in action for "The Walking Dead" Season 8. Season 7 briefly reunited the characters when Daryl went to the Kingdom and lied to spare Carol's feelings, telling her everyone was still alive instead of revealing the deaths of Glenn and Abraham. Carol later learned the truth, and the season ended with the Kingdom joining the fight, with Shiva literally leaping in to save the day. Season 8 will pick up from the war declared between Negan's The Saviors and Rick Grimes' Alexandria, plus Hilltop and the Kingdom. Entertainment Weekly got AMC's first official photo from the new season, showing Caryl together outside of a warehouse: Scott M. Gimple told EW there will be more reunions and first-time meetings in Season 8 -- kind of like what "Game of Thrones" is doing in Season 7, but never mind. We're anticipating the official Season 8 trailer to drop during TWD's Comic-Con panel on Friday, July 21. Season 8 will premiere in October on AMC, and the exact date may be announced next week as well. Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook.

John Bernecker, “The Walking Dead” stuntman who fell off a balcony on the set this week, has died. He was 33.

Bernecker was at the hit AMC show’s studio in Georgia when the tragic incident occurred. It’s unclear if cameras were rolling or what caused the fall, but the professional stunt artist tumbled 25 feet to the ground, which was reportedly made from concrete. He was bleeding from his head and nose when he landed, and, according to a 911 call, was barely conscious.

Bernecker was airlifted at Atlanta Medical Center, where it was determined he was in grave condition. He was put on a ventilator, and medical tests showed significant swelling in his brain. On Thursday, family made the decision to remove him from life support, and he died that night. By his side was Bernecker’s girlfriend, Jennifer Cocker, who also works on “The Walking Dead” as a stunt woman.
