Are you ready for your first in-depth look at the upcoming tenth season of The Walking Dead? This weekend, AMC will be hosting a season 10 preview special ahead of Fear The Walking Dead‘s midseason return.

The preview special will air Sunday, August 11th at 8 PM EST immediately following a season 9 marathon which kicks off late on Saturday night. The special will be hosted by Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick with guests including showrunner Angela Kang, Khary Payton (King Ezekiel), and Josh McDermitt (Eugene Porter).

Check out the teaser for the preview special below.

The official season 10 synopsis reads as follows:
“The Walking Dead is a story that started ten years ago with one man trying to find his family. That family grew, and gradually, communities took shape. They fought and survived, thrived and gave birth to a new generation. It is a tale of humankind, and there are more stories to tell.

It is now Spring, a few months after the end of Season 9 when our group of survivors dared to cross into Whisperer territory during the harsh winter. The collected communities are still dealing with the after-effects of Alpha’s horrific display of power, reluctantly respecting the new borderlines being imposed on them, all while organizing themselves into a militia-style fighting force, preparing for a battle that may be unavoidable.

But the Whisperers are a threat unlike any they have ever faced. Backed by a massive horde of the dead, it is seemingly a fight they cannot win. The question of what to do and the fear it breeds will infect the communities and give rise to paranoia, propaganda, secret agendas, and infighting that will test them as individuals and as a society. The very idea of whether civilization can survive in a world filled with the dead hangs in the balance.”

Season 10 will be the first full season without Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes. Additionally, Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne, has confirmed her impending exit this season. While the show will still have its heavy-hitting characters like Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride), the series is without a doubt shifting focus to the newer generation of survivors. It will be interesting to see how roles change, and the Whisperers war plays out.

Can’t catch all of the season 9 marathon? No problem! You can also catch up on the show’s ninth season right now through AMC.com for free!

The series returns to AMC on Sunday, October 6th at 9 PM. The show just dropped a ton of stunning images from the upcoming season which you can view HERE. Also, check out the explosive SDCC trailer HERE.
