Right after showing the last bonus episode of the 10th season of The Walking Dead on Sunday (4), which showed the origin of the villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), the AMC channel released the first teaser of the 11th year of the series. The highlight of the preview is the introduction of the New World Order, an important arc of the comic books that inspired the attraction.
In the comics, New World Order is the arc that presents the Commonwealth, a structured city with about 50 thousand inhabitants and the largest community in the USA since the fall of society in the zombie apocalypse. The video shows details of the rebuilt city, including a brand new courthouse.
The teaser also announced the arrival date of the new wave of episodes that will end the story of the main series: August 22. The launch comes earlier than the traditional time of The Walking Dead’s return, which used to occur between October and November.
“Finishing off the six additional episodes from season 10, which focused on shorter, character-driven stories, we are excited to start an 11th season bigger than ever,” showrunner Angela Kang told Deadline.
“Expectations will be high – we will see more zombies, a lot of action, new intriguing stories, places we have never seen before and our groups together in a community for the first time, trying to reconstruct what the Whisperers destroyed,” he added.
The final year of The Walking Dead will be divided into three blocks. With 24 episodes in all, the series had started with eight released in August. There is still no set date for the debut of the other two parties, but the exhibition should end only in 2022.
The episodes of the zombie drama are shown on Sundays at 11:30 pm on the Star channel (former Fox).

A New World Order. The final season begins on August 22nd.
