Before the AMC drama returns from hiatus, Entertainment Weekly ,featuring Norman Reedus on the cover, drops onto the Season 8 set of The Walking Dead. Let’s take an in-depth look and talk about what upcoming issue, which hints at what’s to come in Season 4 of Fear the Walking Dead.

As we previously mentioned, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) has declared war against Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Alexandria has joined with the survivors of the Hilltop and the Kingdom against Sanctuary. After the loss of crucial members of his team, Rick is more than ready for some payback against Negan and the Saviors. But can Rick continue on with his mission after an unexpected personal loss strikes?

[SPOILERS Ahead] Here are 5 reasons we need to get the Entertainment Weekly issue featuring The Walking Dead !

5) Can The Show Still Be “Special?”

Reedus discusses what the upcoming loss could mean for the show, “When you lose those key members, it’s such a big blow to the show, and to the fans, and to us that are there. Who’s left? There’s only a few of us left out of all those people. If you wanted to turn it into a totally different show, you get rid of those people. But if you want to hold on to what made the show special, you’ve got to be very careful what you do with those people.”

4) A BIG Death Taking Place!

“He’s definitely leaving behind a really long-lasting legacy,” teases Chandler Riggs about Carl’s life threatening situation, “which was the coolest part about playing those final moments – knowing that Carl was going to have such a lasting impact on the story.”

3) Do The Comics Still Matter?

Executive producer Greg Nicotero defends the shocking twist and deviation from the comics, “I really do believe that a lot of people will put those feelings aside when they watch this episode, because they’re really going to get an opportunity to make some peace with it.”

2) The New Fear Cast!

As we previously mentioned, Lennie James joins the new ensemble cast of Fear the Walking Dead , which includes Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, and Jenna Elfman. The issue will take an exclusive first look at the new characters.

1) Bones Features!

We’re excited to get a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming TNT drama, The Alienist, and the latest Fox comedy, LA to Vegas!

The Entertainment Weekly issue featuringThe Walking Dead arrives on newsstands on January 12th, 2018. The Walking Dead Season 8 will return for its midseason premiere on Sunday, February 25th, 2018 at 9pm on AMC.
