‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6: First Look Photos Tease a Bloody Future

In true “Walking Dead” fashion, things are looking bloody in season six, including the first look images from the upcoming season. Ahead of the show’s Oct. 11 return, AMC has released a slew of new photos to tease the hotly-anticipated premiere, and Variety has an exclusive first look at two portraits featuring Ross Marquand as Aaron and Lennie James as Morgan Jones.

The cabler also released new episode stills from season six, including new cast member Corey Hawkins as comic book character Heath, along with ominous character portraits that show our survivors isolated and loading up on weapons for the challenges ahead.

First Look: “The Walking Dead” Season 6 Images

In a recent interview with EW, showrunner Scott Gimple shared details on the new cast additions for season six, revealing that “Nurse Jackie” alum Merritt Wever will play comic book character Dr. Denise Cloyd, whose medical skills will certainly come in handy after the death of Pete last season. Ethan Embry will play Carter, who is a composite of a number of characters from the comic. “Ethan plays a combo of a few characters that we actually haven’t hit yet or weren’t able to hit in other characters,” Gimple said. “He is an Alexandrian, and has been there the whole time, just quite busy.”

Of “Straight Outta Compton” star Hawkins, Gimple said, “He’s terrific and I’m so excited to see him bring Heath to life. It’s been fun and he dove in with both feet. He’s tough and skeptical when the cameras are rolling, and then when they’re off he’s just like a goofy fan. He’s really, really excited to be there.”

Here’s how AMC describes season six in the official breakdown:

Season five of “The Walking Dead” saw our group being formed into consummate survivors by the world around them… nearly making some of the survivors into villains. To make it as far as they have, through all of their heartbreaking challenges, they have evolved into incredibly powerful people. But who have they become?

The last five episodes of Season Five answered that question with Rick accepting an approach of full brutality in murdering Pete, a fellow Alexandrian.

Season six starts with Alexandria’s safety shattered by multiple threats. To make it, the people of Alexandria will need to catch up with our survivors’ hardness while many of our survivors will need to take a step back from the violence and pragmatism they’ve needed to embrace. These reversals won’t happen easily, or without conflict.

But now Rick’s group is fighting for something more than survival… They’re fighting for their home, and they will defend that at any cost, against any threat, even if that threat comes from within.

“The Walking Dead” season six premieres Sunday, Oct. 11 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
