The Walking Dead season 10 aired its season finale later than usual due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, AMC have announced an extra surprise for fans as six additional episodes will be released in March 2021. Each episode will focus on a particular character and their backstory before the zombie apocalypse began.
The additional The Walking Dead episodes are scheduled to premiere on March 1 2021.
There will guest appearances from Robert Patrick as Mays, Hilarie Burton Morgan as Lucille, and Okea Eme-Akwari and Elijah.
A teaser from AMC explained: “Last on The Walking Dead, we witnessed the fall of Alpha (Samantha Morton) and the end of the Whisperers War.
“The Kingdom had fallen, Hilltop was virtually destroyed and Alexandria abandoned to prepare for final battle.
“Our survivors were trapped and separated from one another.
“Yet, when faced with almost certain death, they rallied together to fight, killing Beta (Ryan Hurst) and eliminating the threat of the horde.
“In these six new episodes, we find our survivors trying to pick themselves up by their bootstraps following the destruction the Whisperers left in their wake.
“The years of struggle weigh upon them as past traumas surface, exposing their more vulnerable sides.
“As they question the state of humanity, the state of their collective community, and the states of their minds, will they find the inner strength to persevere with their lives, friendships, and group intact?”
A synopsis for each extra episode has been revealed along with the featured cast.
The first instalment, Home Sweet Home, will see Maggie (Lauren Cohan) return with a story she is not ready to share, especially when her past catches up with her.
Meanwhile, Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) safety is at stage and Daryl and Maggie fight an unseen and unknown threat.
The second episode, Find Me will focus on Daryl and Carol (Melissa McBride) who come across an old cabin. It takes back to the years when he left the group after Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) disappeared as he relives a time that only the apocalypse could manifest.

Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) and Aaron (Ross Marquand) search for food and supplies to bring back to Alexandria in the third additional episode titled One More.
Small tragedies lead to bigger tragedies as faith is broken and optimism is fragmented when they are put to the ultimate test.
In the fourth instalment, Splinter, Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Ezekiel (Khary Payton), Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura), and Princess (Paola Lázaro) are captured and separated. Princess struggles with memories of her traumatic past and tries to escape one way or another with the help of Ezekiel.
Focus turns to Daryl and Carol once again in the fifth extra episode as they come to a fork in the road and head their separate ways.
Each going into their own type of survival mode, the easiest of challenges become much harder. Will their individual journeys be the tipping point needed to mend their friendship or is the distance between them permanent?
Finally, the sixth additional episode will see Carol take Negan on a journey as they hope to minimise the growing tension between them.
Negan reflects on the events that led him to this point and comes to a conclusion about his future.
Fans will hopefully get the chance to learn more about Negan’s relationship with wife Lucille and how her death changed him.
The Walking Dead returns to AMC on March 1 2021.
