Recently AMC released the premiere date for the six extra episodes of The Walking Dead Season 10. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the series has been moved away from its usual release schedule in October. The creators are bringing six extra episodes that will bridge the gap between the tenth season and the upcoming 24 episode season 11.
The official synopsis for these additional six episodes reveals that viewers will get to see their survivors as they pick themselves up after the destruction of the Whisperers that were left in their wake. The struggle they have had over the years is weighing upon their traumas, bringing out their most vulnerable sides. Our heroes will question the state of humanity, their community, and also the state of their minds. Will these survivors find the strength to get on with lives, friendships, and their group? We will see.
These additional six episodes will see a set of new guest stars that will join in this extended tenth season. These faces include Robert Patrick as Mays from Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Okea Eme-Akwari from Cobra Kai as a new character Elijah, and Hilarie Burton Morgan, who will come in to play Lucille (Negan’s late wife).
These new episodes will take The Walking Dead to the closing as they plan to end the show after eleven seasons. Here is all you need to know about these upcoming six episodes. These episodes will start airing as episode seventeen and so on.
