Critics Consensus

The Walking Dead's eighth season energizes its characters with some much-needed angst and action, though it's still occasionally choppy and lacking forward-moving plot progression.

Critic Reviews for The Walking Dead Season 8

Rick, and his band of survivors... aren't passive victims anymore; they're active and fighting back. It's the way longtime fans are used to seeing them, and it feels good.

The AMC blockbuster has given viewers a welcome respite from getting kicked in the teeth, and that's made it much more enjoyable.

Well-done, but then TWD is always well-done. What's missing is the thrill of surprise, or the shock of surprise. "Mercy" at least offers a hint that one may be coming.

This new season of The Walking Dead should be more fun to watch almost by default.

Let's be frank: The series is clearly in decline.

Apr 17, 2018 | Full Review…

On the whole, season eight was a major disappointment, mainly because they opted to go off on their own and deliver an All-Out War that was lacking just about everything that had made the arc such an exciting read in the first place.

May 21, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The action is so fragmented, it often feels like -- to paraphrase Shakespeare -- there's a lot of sound and fury going on, and it doesn't signify much.

Oct 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Honestly, as a villain, how are people going to take you seriously when you talk literal nonsense? Consider it food for thought.

Oct 26, 2017 | Full Review…

If the first episode is anything to go by, it looks like Walking Dead finally has its mojo back.

Oct 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Suddenly, The Walking Dead seems as if it's outlived its moment, as if it got stuck somewhere in 2015 and left us all to sail on by, waving.

Oct 22, 2017 | Full Review…

The ninth season next fall is inescapable, but these zombies do not have more to give. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Now, [most of] the characters are becoming as brain-dead as the zombies around them.

    Every part of season 8 was frankly horrible.. As a long time fan of this show it was hard to watch the devastating destruction of a show that I love so much. Season 8 delivered some of the worst episodes in the history of the Walking Dead. Season 9 , and 10 have been excellent, but the effects of season 8 still stay with me today,It's almost PTSD. If a couple minutes go by and things are kind of dull, I immediately start to panic! I will never be able to forget the horrific writing and storytelling that took place during season 8. I sometimes wish that this season would be cut completely. It pains me to give The Walking Dead Season 8 a "1" Star , but it would be a lie not to.

    action-packed season! wow!

    I like this season, but it has some flaws that just can't be denied, even if you're trying. The first half has some weird writing in store for us. However, the back-half is full of strong moments!

    Killing the show on purpose won't make the lawsuits go away.
  • Oct 11, 2019
    A really bad season in an awesome show.
  • Oct 01, 2019
    This season wasn't worse compared to Season 7
  • Sep 26, 2019
    Why did they continue this? It shouldn't have even began. Awful. Abysmal. Utter garbage.
  • Sep 22, 2019
    como la 7 esta temporada afloja un poco y negan la anima siempre que negan sale se anima si no fuera por negan la 7 y 8 hubiera sido un fracaso sin negan
  • Sep 18, 2019
    As a huge fan of The Walking Dead, season 8 is probably my least favourite, from the opening fight which drags on at times to a lot of stuff we've already seen, still good to watch.
