New Walking Dead Season 11 Images Kick Off AMC's '11 Weeks Of Reveals'

Like many things in 2020, the tenth season of "The Walking Dead" was completely upended by the COVID-19 pandemic. It premiered in October 2019 and was supposed to conclude in April 2020, but then the pandemic hit and pushed the finale to October. To make up for it, AMC added six more episodes to the season, which finished airing in April 2021.

And now, on the eve of Season 11, fans of "The Walking Dead" are getting even more treats that will hopefully help them forget about the Season 10 weirdness. On June 10, 2021, AMC kicked off its "11 Weeks of Reveals" event. Each Thursday, AMC will drop brand-new content teasing Season 11 until it premieres on Sunday, August 22, at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.

Last week, the first Week of Reveals, AMC announced a series of four specials, each one highlighting the origin story of one of the show's most beloved characters: Daryl (Norman Reedus), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Neegan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and Carol (Melissa McBride).

But the second reveal was even better. Not only did AMC share brand-new set photos from the upcoming 11th season, but it also gave a glimpse of what's in store for the Alexandria survivors.

In season 11, yet another threat emerges at the worst possible time

In a press release shared with Looper, AMC revealed its first official synopsis for Season 11.

"Previously on 'The Walking Dead,'" the synopsis begins, "our survivors confronted past demons and combated new threats, with friendships and relationships suffering from the mounting collateral damage that is the apocalypse. Alexandria is severely compromised, left a former shell of the home it once was from the carnage and devastation left behind by the Whisperers.

"Now all who live in Alexandria struggle to refortify it and feed its increasing number of residents, which include the survivors from the fall of the Kingdom and the burning of Hilltop; along with Maggie and her new group, the Wardens. Alexandria has more people than it can manage to feed and protect. Their situation is dire as tensions heat up over past events and self-preservation rises to the surface within the ravaged walls.

"They must secure more food while they attempt to restore Alexandria before it collapses like countless other communities they have come across throughout the years. But where and how? More haggard and hungrier than ever before, they must dig deeper to find the effort and strength to safeguard the lives of their children, even if it means losing their own.

"Meanwhile, unbeknownst to those at Alexandria, Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko, and Princess are still being held captive by mysterious soldiers who are members of a larger and unforthcoming group."

That's a vague description of this season's big bad, but luckily, the wait for Season 11 isn't much longer. Even better, there will be plenty of new "Walking Dead" content every week to get us excited until then.
