With less than two months until its return, The Walking Dead has confirmed the upcoming Season 10 premiere date with a new piece of key art for the popular AMC series.
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.
The plot description reveals that several months have passed since the Season 9 finale, with the survivors now rebuilding in the spring while tenuously keeping to borders imposed on them by Alpha and the Whisperers. But with tension running high, the true threat to the communities' stability come from within.
