Returning: The Walking Dead

It’s still a long way off but Binge has confirmed The Walking Dead will return with six new episodes in March.

The extended 10th season is back on Monday 1 March, 2021, with the six new episodes dropping weekly.

A table read clip from the new episode, “One More”, was also released featuring Ross Marquand, Seth Gilliam, Robert Patrick and narrated by Josh McDermitt.

New guest stars include Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Perry Mason, Scorpion) as “Mays” and Hilarie Burton Morgan (One Tree Hill, White Collar, Friday Night In with the Morgans) as “Lucille,” along with new co-star Okea Eme-Akwari (Greenland, Cobra Kai) as “Elijah,” among others.

Last time on The Walking Dead, we witnessed the fall of Alpha (Samantha Morton) and the end of the Whisperers War. The Kingdom had fallen, Hilltop was virtually destroyed and Alexandria abandoned to prepare for the final battle. Survivors were trapped and separated from one another. Yet, when faced with almost certain death, they rallied together to fight, killing Beta (Ryan Hurst) and eliminating the threat of the horde.

In these six new episodes, the survivors try to pick themselves up by their bootstraps following the destruction the Whisperers left in their wake. The years of struggle weigh upon them as past traumas surface, exposing their more vulnerable sides. As they question the state of humanity, the state of their collective community, and the states of their minds, will they find the inner strength to persevere with their lives, friendships, and group intact?

  1. When will Binge offer streaming options above HD resolution? I’ve given up on several shows from them because the picture quality just doesn’t cut it on a big screen. Dark scenes are almost unwatchable.

    • Foxtel’s compression is near terrible. Maybe they should focus more on actually making sure their compression looks good and tolerable before working on 4K streaming. It murders any dark scenes or anything with film grain. Worst I’ve seen of it was the end of the first episode of I Know This Much Is True

      • Yes, that one was ruined for me too. Most episodes of The Outsider and Chernobyl were also butchered. Fine if you’re viewing on a laptop or tablet but it’s just not acceptable on the TV.
