‘The Walking Dead’ season 10 confirmed in dramatic new trailer

How will they get on without Rick Grimes?

The Walking Dead season 10 has been confirmed with the release of a dramatic new teaser trailer.

Showrunner Angela Kang previously teased plans to bring back Maggie Rhee and possibly make Georgie’s group a part of universe in general.

Season 10 was confirmed via Instagram by Kang. “Season 10! #twd #thewalking dead,” she captioned the clip, which showed The Whisperers from the zombie apocalypse growling, before one stares directly at the camera, placing a finger to their mouth.

‘S10 October’ then appears across the screen, meaning the new season could arrive later this year. You can watch the clip below.

Speaking about the new season earlier this year, Kang told Comicbook: “I’ll say first of all that we’ve still planned some more story with Maggie. Lauren wants to [do it], it will be a little subject to her schedule but hopefully we have her back next season.

“We have always planned to have this great story with Maggie this season and I think we promised something. We wanted to pay off that promise. We definitely have a very strong Maggie arc.”

The showrunner gave an update to Comicbook.com in November. “Lauren and I have been texting about some things, and we’re hopefully gonna schedule a conversation,” she said, “but Georgie’s group is definitely out there in the world doing some stuff, and I have some notion of what they’re up to. They may also be part of the universe in general. ‘That’s really up to Scott [Gimple – Chief of Content], but we’ll see how it all plays out. In our minds, there’s a lot of things going on in the world around our characters and the way that it intersects with our story, that’s part of what we’re talking about currently.”
