The Walking Dead releases new season 10 poster art that puts the spotlight on long-time characters Daryl, Michonne and Carol.
A piece of promotional artwork featuring Daryl, Carol and Michonne has been released by the network, confirming the Season 10 premiere will air on Sunday, October 6. A plot description for the new season has also been released, teasing the fragile peace between the survivors at Hilltop and the Whisperers may not last long.
The Walking Dead is a story that started 10 years ago with one man trying to find his family. That family grew and gradually communities took shape. They fought and survived, thrived and gave birth to a new generation. It is a tale of humankind and there are more stories to tell. It is now Spring, a few months after the end of Season 9, when our group of survivors dared to cross into Whisperer territory during the harsh winter. The collected communities are still dealing with the after effects of Alpha’s horrific display of power, reluctantly respecting the new borderlines being imposed on them, all while organizing themselves into a militia-style fighting force, preparing for a battle that may be unavoidable. But the Whisperers are a threat unlike any they have ever faced. Backed by a massive horde of the dead it is seemingly a fight they cannot win. The question of what to do and the fear it breeds will infect the communities and give rise to paranoia, propaganda, secret agendas, and infighting that will test them as individuals and as a society. The very idea of whether civilization can survive in a world filled with the dead hangs in the balance.
Though The Walking Dead has certainly gone through its struggles in recent years, seeing many fans jump ship for various reasons, the core characters of Daryl, Michonne and Carol have retained their popularity with audiences. For his part, Daryl actor Reedus has indicated that he wants to stick it out to the end of the series, which is great news for all the Daryl fans who’ve promised to revolt if Mr. Dixon ever exits.
AMC’s The Walking Dead stars Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Nadia Hilker, Dan Fogler, Angel Theory, Lauren Ridloff and Eleanor Matsuura. The series returns for its 10th season on October 6.
