Andrew Lincoln, the British actor who is currently playing as Rick Grimes in AMC's "The Walking Dead," admits he has been pumped up for the show's Season 8 premiere which is also the series' 100th episode.

Lincoln, while speaking with Comic Book, seemingly hints that "The Walking Dead" Season 8 premiere will be big, considering that the upcoming season will open up on the 100th episode of the show. He noted that the production has to come and bring one of the greatest episodes ever in the history of the show when it kicks off sometime in October 2017.

"It's a huge milestone and, you know, it will be a big deal because there's a lot of the crew and a few of the cast left that have trudged all of those hard and sweaty and bloody miles together," the 43-year-old British actor said. "So, it's a huge achievement and I know I'm sure, Scott Gimple, four years ago, had it planned that we would be starting a full-scale war on the hundredth episode."

Lincoln, unfortunately, did not reveal any specific details about "The Walking Dead" Season 8. He did, however, describe the upcoming season as "scary," "big" and "extraordinary."

As what many fans may recall, "The Walking Dead" has ended its seventh season not with a cliffhanger but as opener for the much awaited arc called "All-Out War." The three rising colonies Alexandria, Hilltop and The Kingdom have now officially joined arms to rise against The Saviors led by the tyrant Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), EnStars reported.

This is all just the start, apparently. The English actor, on his talk with Entertainment Weekly, seemingly hinted that "The Walking Dead" Season 7 acted as the introduction for all the key players in the chess board. "And I think now we get to start really playing the game. The game is afoot, as they say," he continued.

"The Walking Dead" Season 8 production is being expected to kick off next month - at least three weeks from now, according to Comic Book.
