The Walking Dead Season 10 Promo Teases Upcoming Extra Episodes
An extra six episodes from the latest season of AMC's zombie show arrives next month.
The Walking Dead Season 10 didn't exactly pan out how the makers originally intended. The pandemic shut down production before shooting was finished on the season, and it ended up airing in April last year without the final episode. That episode was finally screened in October, and the season will now complete its run with an additional six episodes from next month. A new teaser for these episodes has now been released.
Like previous Walking Dead promos, this teaser is very stylised and offers some clues about what to expect from the upcoming episodes. While we don't see any footage, the teaser promises "six new stories, one shared fate," and there's a variety of voiceovers from characters such as Daryl, Judith, Carol, and Negan. Check it out below:
The Walking Dead returns to AMC on February 28. In September last year, showrunner Angela Kang explained that the six new episodes would focus on separate characters, allowing the production to continue under COVID-safe conditions.
"There's sort of an anthological feel to them" she told Comic Book. "They're really deep dives into our characters, which I hope people enjoy. We've been enjoying working on something that's a little bit different from what we were doing in the main part of Season 10.
"We just get to feature different people and tell these little stories that all kind of add up to a picture of what our survivors are going through, and that will lead us into Season 11 eventually."
In September, it was confirmed that The Walking Dead Season 11 will be the final one for the main show. It will consist of 24 episodes, which will begin airing in late 2021, and run through to late 2022. However, it's hardly the end of the franchise--fans also have the Rick Grimes movies, a Daryl and Carol spin-off series, and an anthology show titled Tales of the Walking Dead to look forward to.
