The Walking Dead on AMC was in a rut for years before Season 9 brought massive changes, breathing new life into the series’ established mythologies. With Season 10 set to premiere next month, it’s a good time to revisit the show with an eye towards what we can expect next. If you don’t have time to re-watch Season 9, the video from Looper embedded at the top of the article is a perfect recap. Give it a spin!
The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday, October 6th at 9 pm ET/8pm CT. Check out the synopsis and full trailer below.
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.
