SDCC 2019: First trailer for The Walking Dead season 10

The Walking Dead S10AMC released a lot of news about the upcoming season of its zombie apocalypse hit, The Walking Dead.

First off was a full trailer for the tenth season of the series which sees the heroes continuing their conflict against the Whisperers, still led by the vicious Alpha (played by Samantha Morton).

There was also a brief teaser of the upcoming Rick Grimes movie where we find out what happened to good ol’ Rick after he was taken by a helicopter to who knows where last season.

Here’s the teaser:

Sadly, The Walking Dead is due to lose another major cast member this season as Danai Gurira (Michonne herself) announced that she would be leaving the show. The Atlantic reports that Gurira will only be appearing in a handful of episodes this season but those will surely be badass because Michonne is easily the toughest and most capable warrior in the group. She also has some very intriguing scenes in the trailer. First, there’s that surprising kiss with King Ezekiel (who was her love interest in the comics but how they make this happen in the show is another story.) And then, there’s that final, menacing shot of her wielding Lucille. Whatever is in store for Michonne, it’s clear that she will never go down without a fight.

Other interesting notes from the trailer include some humor and a lot of friendship between Daryl and Carol, Negan gearing up to fight alongside his former enemies, Rosita raising her child, everyone fleeing to Oceanside, and some epic battle on the beach with some spiked shields. Not sure how much I would trust Negan, even after he saved Judith in the wintry season finale, but it would be interesting to see him in action after being stuck in a cell for too long.

And the war with the Whisperers continues as these villains prove to be even more twisted and vicious than the Saviors ever were. Carol is clearly out for Alpha’s blood after what the latter did to Henry last season and we are all thrilled to see the queen back in action. The Walking Dead is bound to be more epic with the stakes higher than ever.

The tagline for the season is:

“In the fight against the Whisperers, there’s no going back.”

The Walking Dead season ten will premiere on October 6 on AMC.
