The Walking Dead Season 11 Confirmed and Season 10 Casting News

-

Showrunner Angela Kang confirmed today at the New York Comic Con that AMC has given the green light to The Walking Dead Season 11. It was also announced that Lauren Cohen is returning as Maggie in the second half of Season 10! We last saw her in Episode 905, when she was comforting Michonne after the bridge explosion that seemingly killed Rick. The episode ends with a six-year time jump, and we later find out Maggie and her son, Hershel Jr, left to live in Georgie’s community.

Executive producer David Alpert also revealed that actress Paola Lázaro (Lethal Weapon, SMILF, Pimp) has been cast as comic character Juanita Sanchez, better known as The Princess (see image below).

Princess is a sassy spear-wielding, goggle-wearing, fuzzy pink jacket-rocking free spirit (with purple hair) originally encountered in Pittsburgh during our heroes’ trek to Commonwealth in Issue 171. Being the only living soul left in her city, Juanita calls herself “The Princess of Pittsburgh” because “Queen” would (to her) make her sound too old. She eventually joins the gang’s convoy to the massive Ohio community, which kicks off one of the final chapters in The Walking Dead comics.

The 10th season of The Walking Dead will premiere on Sunday, October 6. You can watch the opening minutes of the season here and the Comic-Con trailer here.

The Walking Dead Season 11 Confirmed and Season 10 Casting News

The second half of The Walking Dead Season 9 found our groups of survivors, both old and new, continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves. What they do know is that they are in undeniable danger. They will soon realize the world just beyond does not operate as they thought.

The group’s rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it’s unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out. All that is certain is the stakes are high and numerous.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse and follows a group of survivors who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The series is executive produced by chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, showrunner Angela Kang, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Tom Luse and Denise Huth.
