'The Walking Dead' fans were in for a treat during the series' panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2019. The first trailer of 'The Walking Dead' season 10 was released during the panel at Hall H. In addition, the premiere for the new season was also revealed to be October 6.
The new season will see new characters make their way into the show. Thora Birch joins the cast as Gamma, a whisperer who is "fiercely protective" of Alpha. Kevin Carroll plays Virgil, a man who is "desperately trying to get back to his home and family."
Season 10 will also introduce Dante, a character who was Maggie's love interest in 'The Walking Dead' comic books. The Whisperer War was the central storyline in 'The Walking Dead' season 9 and will continue to play out in the upcoming season as Alexandria seeks revenge for the ten people murdered during the Fair.
The four-minute preview shows the Alexandrians putting together an army with spiked shields. The clip also shows a shot of Michonne Hawthorne (Danai Gurira) wielding a very familiar weapon, her katana. Speaking of Michonne, Gurira confirmed this will be her final season playing Michonne, during the panel.

It also looks like Negan (Jefferey Dean Morgan) will be joining the Alexandrians in the battle against the Whisperers. There is a sequence where he says he'd rather "pick tomatoes and bury corpses." The trailer also gives an idea of the intensity of the battle in the upcoming season.
Meanwhile, EW reported series star Andrew Lincoln who left 'The Walking Dead' during season 9 and hoped to return as director for the tenth season, will not be doing so. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts meant he would not be directing after all.
However, another former 'The Walking Dead' star will be behind the camera in season 10 as Michael Cudlitz (who played “dolphin smooth” Abraham Ford and returned to helm last season’s 'Stradivarius') has already directed another episode of the flagship show for season 10.
'The Walking Dead' also stars Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Amelio, Tom Payne, Xander Berkeley, Khary Payton, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
'The Walking Dead' will premiere on AMC October 6.
