Ahead of the premiere of season 8, 'The Walking Dead' promotes Pollyanna McIntosh, Steven Ogg and Katelyn Nacon to series regulars while Jeffrey Dean Morgan reveals the production date of season 8.

At the Walker Stalker Convention in San Francisco, California on Saturday, April 15, Jeffrey revealed, "We start shooting in 10 days." It means that "TWD" will kick off its season 8 production on Tuesday, April 25.

The actor further revealed that he hadn't read the scripts. He went on teasing, "I might be dead. Norman Reedus [Daryl Dixon] might be dead."
