Daryl is “ready to kill everybody” in The Walking Dead season 8

The Walking Dead’s eighth season is just days away – and it’s going to be epic.

Norman Reedus, who plays loveable redneck Daryl Dixon in the hit zombie show, says his character is “ready to kill everybody”.

“He’s just got revenge on his mind this year,” Reedus revealed. “He’s ready to kill everybody, no matter what the group says, no matter what anybody says.

“He’s just like, ‘Nah, screw it. Everybody dies.’ He’s very focused on revenge.”

Earlier this week, Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron in the series, said The Walking Dead season 8 is like Die Hard with zombies.

“The first four or five episodes are kind of like little mini action films,” the 36-year-old American actor said.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Marquand said he is excited about the new season, stating: “They’re hour-long action films, each one of them, and that’s just exciting for me being an action nerd because Die Hard is my favourite action movie of all time and there are little moments like that throughout.

“There are these really sort of beautifully nuanced and realistic action moments. I think that we’ve struck a really good balance of the fantastical elements of the show with some really great just old school action sequences.”

The eighth season of The Walking Dead will return in the UK on October 23, having premiered the previous day in the US.

The first episode of the new season, Mercy, will also be The Walking Dead‘s 100th episode.
