Original Story (8/2/2017 at 1:24 p.m. ET):
The Walking Dead is gearing up for their hundredth episode and the cast couldn’t be more excited!
AMC took to Facebook to thank fans for their dedication these past 7 seasons and it’s pretty emotional, TBH.
Read on for all the sappy details.
TWD shared an epic look at the cast through the years in a new Season 8 teaser poster.
It’s crazy how much these actors have changed.
The post was quickly followed with a sweet thank you video to the fans.
He doesn’t seem to even notice Melissa’s goofy behavior, that’s how much these two love each other.
Andrew Lincoln’s message is much more serious but clearly heartfelt.
He proudly announces TWD has reached “the hundreds” and thanks fans for being there along the way.
However, he does appear later to remind us how physically punishing this role has been.
Go sit down awhile, Andy.
Other familiar faces reiterate the epic number and give their own happy memories of the series.
Alanna Masterson drops a bomb on Tara fans — she was only supposed to be around for three episodes.
Later, Lennie James shares a similar story: Morgan only returned to the show thanks to his rabid fanbase.
Similarly, a much more subdued Melissa shares her original fear Carol would die in Season 1.
Naturally, the happy cast calls for another hundred episodes.
Bring it on!
Overall, the main message shared by everyone is a complete and utter thankfulness for the fans that brought them here.
Oh, and Josh McDermitt thinks you’re cool for getting that mullet haircut in his honor.
Check out the emotional video below!
The Walking Dead premieres Sunday, October 22 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
