'The Walking Dead' Season 10: Meet Norman Reedus, Hilarie Burton and the rest of the cast of AMC's hit zombie thriller
While Season 10 Episode 16 of 'The Walking Dead' aired last year on October 4, the show is set to release six new bonus episodes this year. The trailer brought a lot of excitement to the mix as we see Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) about to deal with his past as a Savior.
It also shows the anticipated return of Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) as she converses with Daryl about what happened to Glenn. If you watched the series you know that Negan murdered Glenn in the most horrendous way possible. Not to mention, the trailer also shows that Negan's ex-wife, Lucille (Hilary Burton) is back. The new episodes are set to air on Sunday, February 28, at 9 pm on AMC, but here is the cast that will bring the rest of the season to life.
