We’re just two weeks away from the return of The Walking Dead. Over the past several months, there’s been a lot of news about new shows, an extended Season 10, and more content on the way! Fans are excited about what’s to come! But one of the newest characters has fans even more excited… the introduction of Hershel Rhee, Glen and Maggie’s son.
We first saw Hershel in the trailer for the upcoming episodes. But his appearance was quick. He was wearing a similar to hat to one that we see on Glenn in the first season of The Walking Dead!.
We’re gearing up for an epic return.

The show is set to return on February 28, 2021 with six new episodes. The titles of the episodes are as follows:
- Home Sweet Home
- Find Me
- One More
- Here’s Negan
The episode, Home Sweet Home, will feature Maggie will introduce us to Hersehel, along with several other new characters that Maggie encountered during her time away from Alexandria and our main group. We will learn what Maggie has been up to through the moment when she arrives to help the main group fight off the Whisperers .
Here’s the official synopsis:
“Maggie has returned with a story she is not ready to share, even when her past catches up to her. Negan’s safety is at stake again. Daryl and Maggie fight an unseen and unknown threat. ”
In the episode, Find Me, according to the synopsis, will be about:
“An adventure for Daryl and Carol 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.”
Daryl was on his own during this six year period. He was away from the group and trying to reconcile the loss of Rick and what the future would bring.
On a previous episode of Talking Dead, Reedus said about Rick’s disappearance, “I think he’s been looking for this body. ‘If he died, where’s his body? … I think he needs closure. There’s a piece of this puzzle missing.” Obviously, Daryl didn’t get that closure and, at this moment, he’s not aware that Michonne located some clues that Rick may still be alive.
What’s also amazing is the title of the last episode, Here’s Negan. This is the exact title used for the stand alone comic book that featured Negan’s backstory. If you’ve been paying attention, then you already know that this episode has been filming with Jeffrey Dean Morgan portraying Negan with his real-life wife, Hilarie Burton, portraying Negan’s wife, Lucille. The episode will be completely focused on Negan’s back story.
This all sounds like these new six epiosodes of The Walking Dead will be amazing! What are you most excited about in these upcoming six episodes of The Walking Dead? Let us know in the comments below!
