Season 10 of The Walking Dead is right around the corner, and AMC is turning up the heat with some super intense new photos from the upcoming season.
In the images below, we see some interesting details from the new season. For starters, Sydney Park will be returning after being mainly absent during season 9. She is pictured below in what looks to be a tense moment. Park’s character Cyndie is shown ready to attack someone or something alongside Daryl (Norman Reedus), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Carol (Melissa McBride), and Diane (Kerry Cahill) while the forest floor burns. Siddiq (Avi Nash) is shown walking with a baby carrier, showing the series is taking another time jump, along with Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) and Eugene (Josh McDermitt). Additionally, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is out and about in the world doing some manual labor. He can be seen kneeling beside a garden tending to the plants while Brandon (Blaine Kern III) keeps watch.

The official season 10 synopsis reads as follows:
[row]“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.”[/row]
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.
The series returns to AMC on Sunday, October 6th at 9 PM. Check out the explosive SDCC trailer HERE.
