AMC’s Comic-Con presentation for all things The Walking Dead brought a lot of treats to terrorize their fans today. First and foremost was the first trailer for Season 10 of the seminal series, a video with more than four minutes of content teasing this fall’s return of the hit drama. And while there were a ton of interactions, reveals, character moments, and action sequences worth watching, a short teaser for the upcoming movie treatment of The Walking Dead appeared as well.
As for the 10th season of TWD, it seems like everyone is getting in on the fighting this time. Like everyone. Daryl (Norman Reedus) may come about as close as anyone has in breaking the fourth wall in this one when he opines that they’re just surviving from one big fight to the next. Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) rallies the troops which include Aaron (Ross Marquand) leading the charge (with his prosthetic arm) and the recently released Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) joining the party. (What could possibly go wrong?) Even young Judith (Cailey Fleming) gets in on the fun! And while Danai Gurira will be exiting the show at some point this season, Michonne gets a killer closing moment in this new trailer.
Check out the new trailer for Season 10 of AMC’s The Walking Dead below, and be sure to tune in on Sunday, October 6th for the new season:
In the fight against the Whisperers, there’s no going back.
