New season 6 Walking Dead pics suggest things will pick up right where they left off

AMC really knows how to keep fans wanting more. In the weeks leading up to the midseason premiere of The Walking Dead on February 14, the network has released a new batch of promotional photos for the upcoming episodes. The recent release follows several other teasers, including a six-pane poster released a couple of weeks back.

The images in the latest reveal don’t give up anything specific about what’s to come; AMC is careful to tease just enough to be intriguing, without spoiling the plot. Most notably, we see a photo of a bloody Daryl, staring into what is likely the eyes of Negan’s group, the Saviors.

As regular viewers know (spoiler alert), the show ended last year with Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham being stopped in their tracks while driving back “home” to Alexandria. They emerge from the truck to be confronted by a group of men who claim that their possessions now belong to Negan. Presumably, judging from the photo, the new season will pick up right where we left off. And Daryl doesn’t quite look ready to give anything to anyone.

In another photo, we see Abraham crouched down, with an apparently defeated look on his face. Or maybe that’s just annoyance with having to deliver a serious ass-whopping…again.

Sasha, who appears in a third photo, meanwhile, looks ready to rumble, hand firmly on the gun holstered at her side.

When you really think about it, this appears to be nothing more than a shot from the last episode that aired for season six. So if nothing else, what it confirms is that things will pick up where they left off, whether immediately, or at some point in the first episode or two.

If you need any more evidence that the first episode will be a doozy, quotes showrunner Scott Gimple as suggesting that the upcoming ninth episode will be “gargantuan.” It is Valentine’s Day, so surely The Walking Dead wouldn’t kill off someone major, right? There’s never a guarantee.

The Walking Dead season 11, part 2 trailer aims to remake the world
The cast of The Walking Dead.

For nearly 12 years, The Walking Dead has been AMC's flagship series. However, the final season is raising questions about whether humanity can survive past the events of the zombie apocalypse. In the first trailer for The Walking Dead season 11, part 2, Norman Reedus' Daryl Dixon makes an impassioned plea to his fellow survivors. Daryl is questioning the need to kill each other in a world already poisoned by death. But a new war among the survivors appears to be inevitable.

Warning, spoilers ahead! AMC is releasing The Walking Dead season 11 in eight-episode installments, in a bid to keep the show around as long as possible. 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.

Ratings for The Walking Dead aren't what they used to be, but that isn't stopping AMC from launching a third series set in the world of the hit zombie survival drama.

The still-untitled series will follow two female protagonists as they attempt to live in a world filled with threats -- both human and zombie -- around every corner, and will unfold in the same universe as the network's two existing series, The Walking Dead and and Fear the Walking Dead. AMC released a set of six photos from the series ahead of its panel event at New York Comic-Con on Saturday, October 5.
