Spoilers ahead for The Walking Dead television series.
Following the shocking events of Sunday's episode, The Walking Dead is set to resume its eighth season on Sunday, February 25. In the midseason finale, Carl was bitten by a zombie but did not - yet - reveal it to his father.
"It’s very important to Carl’s story what happens in the next episode," said showrunner Scott Gimple on Talking Dead. "Right now, he’s alive and has some business to attend to. That [bite] is a one-way ticket but I like to think that what we see in the next episode is so important to his story and everyone else's story."
