Recently, Angela Kang, the showrunner of The Walking Dead revealed new villains in the second part of season 10 and 11. After a long delay, the final episode of the first half of season 10 aired on Sunday night on AMC. The 16th episode left a cliff-hanger at the end, which has now made everybody curious about the new villain.
End of battle with the Whisperer
Whisperer War started by the end of season 9, which focused on a war between the survivors and the Whisperers. Viewers also saw Ezekiel (Khary Payton), Princess (Paula Lázaro), Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura), and Eugene (Josh McDermitt) going on a separate mission.
Later on, the team tries to meet a woman named Stephanie, who has been talking to Eugene over Hilltop’s radio.Surrounded by soldiers in white armor with guns aimed towards them at the location.
Well, it’s not rocket science for a viewer not to understand the mysterious characters dressed up in somewhat Star Wars’ Stormtroopers-like uniform. The creators left a major cliff-hanger, and now, the showrunner has given some insight into the new villains in the upcoming season.
In an interview with a source, Kang said that the characters revealed at the end of the previous season are related to the comics. She also explained what this new group means in the upcoming season. The characters’ designs are taken from the comics, and comic fans will know this group as the entry into the plotline of the Commonwealth.
And for those, who haven’t seen the comics, then they will get to learn more about the group in the upcoming episodes. Kang also explained that this group is heavily organized.
She also added that this white armored group is different from the Whisperers. Their semiautomatic weapons are created bayonet tips, and they may access other things and live behind the walls.
The main characters will get involved with this new group, and the story will continue. In Robert Kirkman’s comic series, it was shown that there is a highly advanced network of communities called Commonwealth.
The entire community is led by Pamela Milton, who is their governor. Furthermore, the white armored group takes Eugene and his team to Launce. The person allows them to enter through their entrance into Commonwealth after interviewing them.
For now, we are not sure how the upcoming episodes of season 10 and season 11 will revolve around the Commonwealth arc. But one thing is clear that the new community will play a major role.
So what do you think, how will our survivors face this highly equipped military? Will they become their ally or enemy? To know what lies ahead, fans will have to wait until next year.
Stay tuned for more details.
