Old Man Rick: Is AMC’s The Walking Dead Planning A Time Jump?

Some potentially big-time spoilers were revealed at the Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic Con today.

According to Bleeding Cool ace reporter Will Romine, who is live on the scene, footage of next season of The Walking Dead ended with a shot of Rick as an old man:

“The shot focuses about five seconds on a cane propped against the wall, and then a mid range shot of the bed. Finally, we focus on Rick’s face, with a longer beard and grayer hair and he opens his eyes, reminiscent of when he woke up from the coma in Episode 1.”

Does this mean we’re getting a time jump in Season 8? Or maybe a fantasy sequence? The Walking Dead Season 8 premieres on October 22nd, so we’ll find out then. Bleeding Cool will have a full report from the panel later.

UPDATE: The trailer has been released. Check it out for yourself:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
