Good news for The Walking Dead fans — Today AMC announced a bunch of new information that fans have been waiting for! The first of which is the premiere date for the extended season 10 of The Walking Dead! The episodes will begin airing Sunday, February 28 at 9 p.m. ET, but if you’re an AMC+ subscriber (the streamers premium service), you can view the episodes early on Thursday.
Joining the previously announced Hilarie Burton Morgan who will play Negan’s wife Lucille comes Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Perry Mason) as Mays and Okea Eme-Akwari (Greenland, Cobra Kai) as Elijah.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of the behind the scenes prep has to be done virtually, and AMC has given fans a taste of that with a newly released clip of Ross Marquand, Seth Gilliam, and Robert Patrick with narration by Josh McDermitt for their episode “One More.”
AMC also released the official plot descriptions for the new episodes which you can check out below! Each of the episodes will follow a different key character (or characters) in the show.
EPISODE 1017 – “Home Sweet Home”
Maggie (Lauren Cohan) has returned with a story she is not ready to share, even when her past catches up to her. Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) safety is at stake again. Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Maggie fight an unseen and unknown threat.
EPISODE 1018 – “Find Me”
An adventure for Daryl and Carol (Melissa McBride) turns sideways when they come across an old cabin. It takes Daryl back to the years when he left the group after Rick disappeared as he relives a time that only the apocalypse could manifest.
EPISODE 1019 – “One More”
Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) and Aaron (Ross Marquand) search for food and supplies to bring back to Alexandria. Small tragedies lead to bigger tragedies as faith is broken and optimism is fragmented when they are put to the ultimate test.

EPISODE 1021 – “Diverged”
Daryl and Carol come to a fork in the road and head their separate ways. Each going into their own type of survival mode, the easiest of challenges become much harder. Will their individual journeys be the tipping point needed to mend their friendship or is the distance between them permanent?
EPISODE 1022 – “Here’s Negan”
Carol takes Negan on a journey, hoping to minimize the increasing tension. Negan reflects on the events that led him to this point and comes to a conclusion about his future.
