The Walking Dead Comic is over and a third show is getting ready to join the TV franchise. Now, a new synopsis and set of images have been released for the 10th season of the OG series, The Walking Dead. We know that we are in for a pretty interesting season as Michonne will be exiting and there’s a pretty good chance we could see Maggie make a return after Lauren Cohen’s new show was canceled at ABC (which is actually a shame. It was pretty good.). The new synopsis doesn’t give us too much information on the new season, but the show tends to play things pretty close to the vest. And, speaking of vests, the one thing we can’t help but notice about the news images is that all of their clothes seem very clean. Seriously… did they find a laundromat?
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.
