AceShowbiz - AMC has released the first trailer for season 10 of "The Walking Dead" ahead of its much-anticipated premiere. First unveiled during the show's panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 19, the trailer teases a growing conflict with the Whisperers that could lead to a possible war.
In the trailer, Carol (Melissa McBride), Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Michonee (Danai Gurira) are seen being confronted by the Whisperers, who warn them not to cross the border if they don't want a war to break out. However, later in the trailer, it's hinted that there may really be a war between the survivors and the Whisperers when Carol visits the border and looks at her son Henry's (Mascen Lintz) carved necklace that they leave as a memorial.
"The b***h has to die," she says, before another shot shows Carol and Daryl crossing the border. Their intention is still unclear, though it may have something to do with Henry, who was among Whisperers' leader Alpha's (Samantha Morton) victims. Elsewhere in the trailer, there's a battle taking place at the Oceanside community.
One shocking moment that is included in the trailer is a scene where Michonne and Ezekiel (Khary Payton) lock lips. However, the video doesn't feature how the two hook up following their separation from their respective partners. Michonne believes Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) is dead, while Ezekiel split from Carol after Henry's death.
Besides the release of the first trailer, it has also been confirmed that Danai Gurira will be walking away from the long-running zombie apocalypse series after the upcoming season. "I can confirm this will be my last season on the show as Michonne," she said during "The Walking Dead" panel at SDCC. "This has been one of the purest joys of my life to play this role, be amongst these people, and amongst all of you. I am very thankful for the rest experience I've had."
Meanwhile, two new faces are joining the new season of the show. They are "American Beauty" star Thora Birch, who is set to play Gamma, a Whisperer who is fiercely protective of Alpha, and "Snowfall" actor Kevin Carroll, who will take on the role of Virgil. Describing his character during the panel, producer Gale Anne Hurd said, "He encounters some of our group. He's going to be desperately trying to get home to his family."
Season 10 of "The Walking Dead" will premiere on October 6 on AMC.
