“The Walking Dead’ will return with six bonus episodes for season 10 and details about each individual episode have now been revealed…
As fans wait for the final season of “The Walking Dead” to begin, the long running series will debut six bonus episodes from season 10 starting on February 28 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
Like most shows, “The Walking Dead” was shut down earlier this year at the start of the coronavirus pandemic, which ultimately forced the series to end abruptly before the actual season 10 finale could be completed. Work on the episode was finally finished with the season 10 finale debuting in October.
In addition to that finale, “The Walking Dead” also plotted out six additional “bonus” episodes that will serve as an attachment to season 10 without changing anything that happened in that last episode. The six bonus episodes will feature the return of Lauren Cohan, who made a brief appearance as Maggie Rhee during “The Walking Dead” season 10 finale.
The bonus episodes will also see Hilarie Burton star alongside her real life husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan as she plays Negan’s wife Lucille, who died before the zombie apocalypse started while also inspiring the name of his infamous barbed-wire wrapped baseball bat.
In addition to the debut date on Feb. 28, details about each individual episode were also revealed on Thursday. Take a look:
“Home Sweet Home” (Episode 17): 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 thread.
“Find Me” (Episode 18): 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.
“One More” (Episode 19): Gabriel and Aaron 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.
“Splinter” (Episode 20): Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko and Princess are captured and separated. Princess struggles with memories of her traumatic past and tries to escape one way or another with the help of Ezekiel.
“Diverged” (Episode 21): 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?
“Here’s Negan” (Episode 22): 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.
Obviously it appears the final episode will be the biggest as Negan’s backstory is revealed along with seeing his wife Lucille for the first time. It also must be noted that “Here’s Negan” was a four-part series from “The Walking Dead” comic book that was eventually put together for a graphic novel that told the character’s backstory for the first time.
It appears “The Walking Dead” will at least draw partially from that backstory — or the idea behind it — for the Negan-centric episode in season 10.
“The Walking Dead” will return with the season 10 bonus episodes starting on Sunday night, Feb. 28.
