After ten seasons of fighting the dead and fearing the living, there's still something left to fear in Season 11 of The Walking Dead. More than a decade into the zombie apocalypse, the survivors have defeated frightful foes like Governor (David Morrissey) of Woodbury and the cannibals of Terminus, saved themselves from Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors, and silenced Alpha (Samantha Morton) and the Whisperers. For the Final Season of The Walking Dead, showrunner Angela Kang unmasks a new class of threat: an elite squad of human-hunting costumed creeps called the Reapers.

A ghillie-suited sniper (Mike Whinnet) murders Maggie's (Lauren Cohan) friends in the extended Season 10 episode "Home Sweet Home," almost killing Daryl (Norman Reedus) in a vicious attack that ends with the camouflaged Reaper telling Maggie: "Pope marked you." Why the as-yet-unrevealed villain (played by series newcomer Ritchie Coster) "marked" Maggie and her new group the Wardens is a question for Season 11.

"We know that the Reapers came after Maggie and that she'd tangled with them before. Daryl was there kind of seeing how dangerous they can be," Kang said on The Walking Dead Season 11 Preview Special. "I think there's a lot that will be revealed about the Reapers, and so I don't want to get too far ahead of it, but we know that they're incredibly formidable."

"They are not people who are survivors that were like a teacher or a farmer or whatever and learned how to be tough," Kang said of the Reapers. "They were tough coming into the apocalypse. So they're a different sort of group than our people have ever tangled with before."

"They were skilled coming into the apocalypse. So every single one of them is like an incredibly brutal, organized warrior … These are the pinnacle of human killers. It's just a very formidable type of enemy to go up against," Kang teased at San Diego Comic-Con. "They don't rely on numbers and volume of people to fight against in order to kind of survive, so they're a tight-knit group, and they're just really formidable in a way that our characters don't often come across."

They have been reading forum again

"We got interested in these questions of, can somebody redeem themselves? Can there be forgiveness? Is forgiveness owed? Is there an apology that can be made? Can enemies work together in a productive way, or are you always doomed to repeat the same patterns that got you to become enemies to begin with?" said Kang. "There's no easy answer to those kind of questions, they're things that society deals with, so we thought that was really interesting to delve into with those two characters."

For Reedus, who virtually appeared with Kang on the Preview Special, Daryl was "Team Kill Negan" when Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) defeated — but didn't kill — the villain to end the Savior War in Season 8. But after the events of Seasons 9 and 10, where Negan saved Daryl from dying in the Whisperer War, Reedus believes there could be forgiveness.

"After everything, he's done a lot of good stuff now, he's taken care of Judith (Cailey Fleming)," Reedus said on Talking Dead. "He's done a lot of things that are kind of redeeming, and people in that world, they always do horrible things. It's all about perspective. From Negan's perspective, we went and slaughtered all of his people. So there's a world where there's forgiveness, I think."

For some reason I thought it was August this year, not next. Explains why trailers had no actual scenes clips.
Aha it is this year! August 22nd, not August ‘22 :D
Almost there.

Though has there been any proper trailer yet which actually shows some clips?

Watching the three series in the franchise has got me wondering.
We know there are pockets of society living under the remains of the previous goverment. The CRM; Commonwealth, helicopter people. They have people who have no idea how bad the outside world is, protected by walls and armies.

How many of these civilisations are there? Why aren't they using their resources to find survivors, surely there are so few people left on the outside that they will not be a drain on their society but an asset who are more than capable of bringing a vast experience on the dead and may be the key to eradicating them.

In the world? Probably plenty enough. And in some places they might have cleared the Dead. But are they willing to go so far to show such activity?

Yes they are. That much I do know even though I still haven't watched the series. But considering that there at least three in east side of US I would assume that there are more in West and in Canada. And seeing how well Reapers had organised themselves its like that there are other contractor groups that has survived. We only get the misery bits.

Later. Around season 7 or 8, I think. And when he arrives he does so with a significant BANG. It's well worth the wait.

Can't help thinking the big guy called Abraham is just like Duke Nukem. Then he finds a box of cigars. He just needs to utter that phrase first heard in They Live and the image will be complete

He has done a lot of directional duties in the main series. And I also like the Duke Nukem image.
