  • The Walking Dead's extended 10th season of six new episodes will premiere on 1 March 2021.
  • It will air at 03:00 simulcast with the US and then again at 20:45 that night on Fox (Dstv 125, Startsat 132).

FOX has announced that The Walking Dead's extended 10th season of six new episodes will premiere on Monday 1 March at 03:00, simulcast with the US, and then again at 20:45 that night on FOX (Dstv 125, Startsat 132).

Leading up to this, this festive season, FOX will be celebrating a decade of the popular show with a marathon of every single episode. From Wednesday 2 December at 21:30, every weeknight, viewers can enjoy double bills of the post-apocalypse horror series starting from the very beginning of the first season.

New guest stars to be featured in the extended third season episodes include Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Perry Mason, Scorpion) as "Mays," Hilarie Burton Morgan (One Tree Hill, White Collar, Friday Night In with the Morgans) as "Lucille" along with new co-star Okea Eme-Akwari (Greenland, Cobra Kai) as "Elijah," among others.

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 the 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?

"The Walking Dead has captured the imagination of horror viewers since its inception ten years ago, and continues to deliver nail-biting storylines, grit and action in every single episode. The show has one of the most consistently talented casts on television, with passionate fans around the world including many here in Africa".
-- Evert van der Veer, Vice President, Media Networks, The Walt Disney Company Africa
