Ross Marquand, who portrays Aaron on “The Walking Dead,” hinted that season 8 is the best season yet of the post-apocalyptic horror television series despite the shock factor of season 7. In a new interview, the 35-year-old actor revealed that the new installment will certainly outdo “TWD” season 7.

“I think, I mean, for as cool as the Tiger is, we all love Shiva, but I think what we've got to show here in season 8 is going to trump everything that we've ever done on the show by far,” Ross Marquand confidently told ComicBook.

“The Walking Dead” season 7 left fans broken-hearted as two of the beloved characters were brutally killed by the show’s heartless villain, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Both Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) lost their lives during Negan’s dangerous game of “eenie meenie miney mo” where he smashed their heads with his barbed wire baseball bat named Lucille.

The shocking scene clearly made the episode as the most-watched episode in recent television history. However, Ross Marquand assured the fans that “The Walking Dead” season 8 will be a lot better.

"Every episode I read I'm just blown away by what we're getting on the page, and I think it is going to raise the stakes even higher than the show has ever gone before, which is saying a lot considering the stake rising we've been doing every single year for the last 7,” the “TWD” actor shared to ComicBook. “To go even further in season 8, that's just astonishing."

Despite the loss of two major characters, “The Walking Dead” still has a lot of people left to make the next installment intriguing and exciting. Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes) Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Melissa McBride (Carol Peletier), Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene) are just a few of the characters who were lucky enough to survive the Walkers and Negan and the saviors.
