The Walking Dead‘s 10th season, which originally began airing in 2019 (remember 2019?), has been extended to six additional episodes beyond its initial order of 16. And now, two years after it began airing, we know when the final six shall see their day in the sun. Per an AMC press release, we’ll get the remaining six episodes of Season 10 of the long-running zombie drama starting on Sunday, February 28, 2021, at 9pm EST. Plus: New cast members, and a chance to stream the new episodes a few days earlier than your fellow walkers.
We already reported that Hilarie Burton Morgan would be joining Walking Dead Season 10 as Negan’s wife (Negan being played, of course, by Morgan‘s real-life husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Joining her as newcomers to the cast include Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) as Mays, who appears to be a newcomer to the multimedia mythology; and Okea Eme-Akwari (Cobra Kai) as Elijah, a mysterious masked man who has appeared faceless in some Season 10 episodes already (and if you like faceless performances, check this list out).
If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, and you need to dive into this Season 10 world ASAP, why not subscribe to AMC+? The nascent, premium streaming service will offer each episode every Thursday before it airs on AMC proper, meaning that the first batch of new episodes is viewable as soon as Thursday, February 25, 2021, and so on. Is this enough of a booster to get more people to a service most folks have simply not heard of? Let’s find out!
The Walking Dead‘s remaining Season 10 episodes begin airing Sunday, February 28, 9pm EST on AMC, and February 25 on AMC+.
