And now the end is near. Well, almost. The Walking Dead won’t complete its last oversized tour until 2022, but On Thursday, AMC released the first images from the 11th and final season of the long-running zombie drama.
Among the images, a glimpse inside the Commonwealth, the mega-community that is key to the conclusion of Robert Kirkman’s comic book series; a photo of enemies Maggie and Negan as extremely unlikely teammates with a group trying to read the writing on the wall (literally); and a photo of undead straphangers. We can only hope they got the exact change.
Ahead of the Season 11 premiere on August 22, AMC also released their official synopsis, which began with a recap. “Previous to The Walking Dead, our survivors have faced demons of the past and fought new threats, with friendships and relationships suffering the growing collateral damage of the apocalypse, ”the network reminded us. “Alexandria is in serious jeopardy, left a shell of the house it once was of carnage and devastation [wrought] by the Whisperers.
“Now all who live in Alexandria are struggling to fortify it and feed its growing number of inhabitants, including the survivors of the fall of the kingdom and the burning of Hilltop – as well as Maggie and her new group, the Wardens,” continues the connection line. . “Alexandria has more people than it can feed and protect. Their situation is dire as tensions escalate over past events and self-preservation surfaces within the ravaged walls. “
It’s not for nothing, but the Reapers also pose a unique new threat. (Read more about the villains here.) Meanwhile, our protagonists “must obtain more food as they attempt to restore Alexandria before it collapses, like countless other communities they have encountered. over the years. But where and how? More haggard and hungrier than ever, they must dig deeper to find the effort and strength to save the lives of their children, even if it means losing theirs. “
Fortunately, there is a light at the end of the tunnel: the Commonwealth – though wary AMC still doesn’t call it that. All the network said was that “unbeknownst to those in Alexandria, Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko and Princess are still being held captive by mysterious soldiers who are members of a larger and unlikely group” .
