The Walking Dead Season 10 Story

Here is the official synopsis for the second half of the season:

The Walking Dead returns to find our group of survivors are trapped. Some in the confines of a cave filled with walkers, while others are caught in a spiral of suspicion and grief. All orchestrated at the hand of Alpha, who continues to prove the Whisperers are always watching, and one step ahead of the communities. Which includes the new and potentially deadly threat of having added Negan to their ranks.

Through this conflict and all they’ve lost, a few still hold onto hope, especially Eugene, who believes the mysterious voice he spoke with on the radio may lead to their world getting bigger once again.

But with the Whisperer War upon them, the collective communities must come together and possibly sacrifice all they have to find a way to silence the Whispers once and for all. Otherwise Alpha will ensure they face a certain doom.

The Walking Dead Season 10 Cast

We expect all surviving cast members to return as well, and for Daryl and Carol to continue at the forefront of the show. Unfortunately, this will be Danai Gurira’s final season as Michonne on The Walking DeadMore on that here.

We have some good news too, though. Seven cast members have been promoted to series regulars: Cailey Fleming (Judith), Cassady McClincy (Lydia), Lauren Ridloff (Connie), Eleanor Matsuura (Yumiko), Nadia Hilker (Magna), Ryan Hurst (Beta), and Cooper Andrews (Jerry).

Lauren Cohan will also return as Maggie at the tail end of this season before becoming a series regular again in season 11.  

Juan Javier Cardenas plays the show’s version of Dante, a popular character from the comics. The show’s version of Dante isn’t quite you’re expecting, though.

Kevin Carroll (The Leftovers) has also joined the cast as a character named Virgil, who is described as “a highly intelligent and resourceful man who is desperately trying to get home to his family.” 

Thora Birch (Ghost World) plays a Whisperer named Gamma, who is described as “fiercely protective” of Alpha.
