‘The Walking Dead’ Drops Details Of Additional Season 10 Episodes Inc. Premiere Date, Table Read Video, Casting & More!

FOX UK has announced The Walking Dead will return in March for the extended 10th season of six new episodes, and also dropped, not only some details of what those episodes will include, but also a table read video featuring one of the episodes, and new casting info!

If you’re a fan of the show, you will probably know that the pandemic rather messed with the scheduling of the series this year. The originally intended “finale” episode ran last month on its own, but they had also announced that Season 10 would be getting 6 additional episodes to air in early 2021, with an extended 11th and final season kicking off in late 2021. We now some of the content of those 6 additional episodes, and some casting, which includes Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Perry Mason, Scorpion) as “Mays” and Hilarie Burton Morgan (One Tree Hill, White Collar, Friday Night In with the Morgans… and real-life wife of Jeffery Dean Morgan) as “Lucille,” along with new co-star Okea Eme-Akwari (Greenland, Cobra Kai) as “Elijah,” among others.

When we left ‘The Walking Dead’, we witnessed the fall of Alpha (Samantha Morton) and the end of the Whisperers War. The Kingdom had fallen, Hilltop was virtually destroyed and Alexandria abandoned to prepare for final battle. Our survivors were trapped and separated from one another. Yet, when faced with almost certain death, they rallied together to fight, killing Beta (Ryan Hurst) and eliminating the threat of the horde.

In these six new episodes, we find our survivors trying to pick themselves up by their bootstraps following the destruction the Whisperers left in their wake. The years of struggle weigh upon them as past traumas surface, exposing their more vulnerable sides. As they question the state of humanity, the state of their collective community, and the states of their minds, will they find the inner strength to persevere with their lives, friendships, and group intact?

New episode synopses and featured cast are below:
