AMC’s hit zombie show, The Walking Dead, will return for a 10th season. The network announced the renewal in a tweet that asks you to “listen closely.” As you’ll hear, creatures are whispering, “Season 10.”
It is appropriately unsettling. You can check out the brief clip below. Season 10 premieres in October, according to the video.
The announcement of Season 10 comes just before The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its ninth season later this month. The upcoming episodes will showcase a new group of villains, “The Whisperers,” who wear the faces of the dead to blend in with zombies.
The Season 10 announcement video also featuring The Whisperers suggests they’ll continue to be a featured storyline. However, no firm details are available about Season 10 at this point.
The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln is no longer on the show, but he is not done with the series entirely. He’s coming back to play Rick in a Walking Dead movie. In fact, there are three spin-off films coming that are described as “big, epic entertainments.”
In other Walking Dead news, Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season is coming to a close. The third episode was released in January, while the fourth is coming on March 26.
