‘The Walking Dead’ Season 8 will feature the first ‘fully naked’ zombie.
The walkers on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” murder, eat people and terrorize to no end. However, until now, they always have the decency to cover up.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, series executive producer and director Greg Nicotero revealed that the rear half of Season 8 will feature the first “fully naked” zombie.
“There is an episode where we had our first fully nude walker. We have never done it before,” he said.
The series is known for its ability to push the envelope on the gore, with some of the best, most graphic blood and guts scenes on cable TV. It gets a longer leash when it comes to swearing on TV. Nudity is, however, a new threshold for the drama to cross.
Unfortunately, Nicotero was unable to give details of the gender of the walker or which side the viewers get an eye-full. Although, given the appearance of the majority of the walkers on the series, it’s possible this will be in the sign of the least aesthetically-TV-nudity in the history, regardless.
“The Walking Dead” will return for the second half of Season 8 on Feb. 25. Fans have been waiting anxiously for the show to return after the midseason finale left a major character’s life is hanging in the balance.

After Negan launched an attack on Alexandria, the group escapes to the sewers below. It was there that Rick discovered his son, Carl, who has been with the show since the first season, was bitten. This means that Carl will soon succumb to a fever and, possibly, to turn into a walker. While the actor, Chandler Riggs, is optimistic about leaving the show, he could not resist taking to Twitter to joke about the most recent news.
“Spoiler alert: it’s me,” he wrote on Twitter.
