During the first part of the season, Eugene’s group made their way to the Commonwealth, a supercolony that resembles life before zombies overran civilization.
Unfortunately, the Commonwealth has a darker side that gets explored in the trailer. The Commonwealth provides a good life for anyone in a position of power. But anyone who causes too many waves will be cast out.
Here’s the trailer:
The blurb reads:
“The Walking Dead returns with many of our heroes fighting imminent hellfire under Reaper attack; while others battle Mother Nature’s torrential wrath in Alexandria. For all, their world is literally crashing down around them. Meanwhile, life in the Commonwealth is not as idyllic as it seems. For some, hope will be renewed. Others will be pushed past the point of no return. One truth holds tight: lives hang in the balance with each decision drastically changing their future, their chances of survival, and the state of each community.”
Returning cast members include Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Melissa McBride as Carol Peletier, Lauren Cohan as Maggie Rhee, Christian Serratos as Rosita Espinosa, Josh McDermitt as Eugene Porter, Seth Gilliam as Gabriel Stokes, Ross Marquand as Aaron, Khary Payton as Ezekiel, Cooper Andrews as Jerry, Callan McAuliffe as Alden and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan.
Meanwhile, The Walking Dead spin-off series Tales Of The Walking Dead started filming this week.
The new project is a six-part anthology series focusing on both new and established characters from the show’s universe.
The Walking Dead writer-producer Channing Powell will serve as showrunner on the series, with Scott Gimple, the chief content officer of the franchise, closely involved.
The Walking Dead returns for the last time on February 20th.
