One thing is for certain, we know The Walking Dead will return on February 28th! We’ve finally got a real trailer for the new 6 episodes!
The show is set to return on February 28, 2021 with six new episodes. The titles of the episodes are as follows:

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.
