Drop everything that you’re doing … because the trailer for Season 6 of “The Walking Dead” has leaked online. Fans of the AMC series were anticipating the release of the first video today thanks to San Diego Comic-Con. Multiple members of the cast and crew are set to grace Hall H for a panel about the upcoming sixth season. However, attendees didn’t have to wait for the panel to catch their first glimpse at what lies ahead for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of the survivors.
The Season 6 trailer clocks in at over three minutes long – and those three minutes are jam packed with zombies. The video is a low quality recording of a screen, but fans can still make out some of the upcoming drama and gore. Here’s the breakdown:
The New Rick
“I don’t take chances anymore,” Rick tells Morgan (Lennie James). Rick’s no longer the man that Morgan met at the start of the zombie apocalypse. Although fans have seen many sides of the hero, he seems to be taking on a darker role in Season 6.
A Threat Outside The Walls
There are always threats lurking beyond the walls of Alexandria. However, this threat might not be able to stay out – a herd of walkers. Hundreds of zombies can be seen walking along the barrier of the safe zone.
Follow The Leader
Move over, Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh). Deanna may have been in charge at Alexandria when Rick’s group arrived, but it looks like he’s taken the reins after the Season 4 finale. In the promo video he tells the group of survivors that they have to keep their homes and families safe. But not everyone appears to be on board with Rick.
“So, we’re all just supposed to fall in line behind you?” says one Alexandria resident.
Welcome, Ethan Embry
One new face that makes multiple appearances is that of actor Ethan Embry. He’s known for his roles in “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Once Upon a Time” and most recently “Grace and Frankie.” His character name has yet to be appeared, but it looks like he’ll be butting heads with Rick. He’s the one questioning him in the trailer.
The Bodies Are Piling Up
Multiple people get attacked by walkers in the trailer, however they don’t appear to be major characters. But one clip might hint at a bigger death. Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) can be seen dropping a body into the grave. Could it be someone close to Abraham?
Tough Love For Jessie
What’s next for Rick and Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge)? The two definitely had a connection in Season 4 … but then Rick shot her husband in the finale. What’s next for the two is unclear, but one of Jessie’s sons yells at her that Rick is “dangerous.”
Rick vs. Daryl
Is the bromance between Rick and Daryl (Norman Reedus) over? Based on the trailer it might be. It’s not clear what the two are talking about, but they definitely butt heads about how to handle a situation.
“I know Rick,” Morgan tells Deanna in the trailer. “I can stop him. We have to.”
What is Rick doing that Morgan has to “stop” his old friend? It sounds like lives may be at risk with Rick’s latest plan.
Alexandria At Risk
“You really think that you’re going to take this community from us?” Rick asks in the promo. It’s not clear who he’s talking to, but it doesn’t sound like he has any plans on giving it up.
Season 6 of “The Walking Dead” premieres on AMC on Sunday, October 11. Check back for more updates from San Diego Comic-Con.
