AMC releases first look photos for The Walking Dead season 11
The first part of this season will premiere on 23rd August on Star.
US network AMC has given fans a first look at the upcoming eleventh and final season of The Walking Dead with three new images.
The first shows Carol (Melissa McBride), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Rosita (Christian Serratos) and Lydia (Cassady McClincy) fighting a group of zombified soldiers.
The second zooms out a bit giving us a wider look at the foursome who appear to be in some kind of aircraft hangar.
Entertainment Weekly, who first published the photos, have theorized that both the appearance of these soldiers and the helicopter in the background of the first image could point to the involvement of the Civic Republic Military facility this season.
This is the mysterious group that carried away a severely injured Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) by helicopter at the end of season 9.
While they’ve featured more heavily in spinoffs Fear The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: World Beyond, they could also be set to take a more central role in the main series.
The third and final photo features Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) battling a zombie in the woods with a crowbar now that his infamous barbed wire-coated baseball bat is no more.
The scheming anti-hero returned to live in Alexandria at the end of last season after coming to terms with death of his beloved wife Lucille, despite warnings that Maggie was keen to avenge the brutal murder of her husband Glen (Steven Yeun).
So far, not too much has been revealed about the plot of season 11, but showrunner Angela Kang has previously told Entertainment Weekly that there will be "tons of zombies and lots of action and fun and intrigue, and locations we've never seen."
It was announced back in September 2020 that this final outing will consist of 24 episodes which will be split into two parts. The first will premiere here in the UK on 23rd August on Disney+’s Star.
The first nine seasons of The Walking Dead are available to stream on Amazon now.
