Questions about life and death have piqued humanity’s curiosity since the beginning of recorded history. Some take a positive perspective and opt to make the most of their time on earth, others tend to take a more nihilistic approach given how fragile life seems. What happens when we die is among the most interesting topics for either group though: some believe we ascend to Heaven when we die while others remain unsure what to expect and simply wish for the best. In Hollywood however, this topic can be explored with absolutely no constraints and utilized to establish an audience in presenting a familiar topic in a unique way. One of the most popular television shows of the past decade has been doing just that: The Walking Dead is a television series about a zombie outbreak that is plaguing humanity and destroying society as we know it, and now we have the trailer for the final season of the beloved series.
First airing in 2010, The Walking Dead has consistently been one of the highest rated shows on television since it debuted as fans tune in weekly to watch the apocalyptic free-for-all. The series follows a small group of individuals who have survived the zombie outbreak, but are now forced to contend with the undead as a result and do whatever it takes to survive. While this might sound like one really bad nightmare, the cast and crew of The Walking Dead have made the absolute most of it and cemented their position in television history as a result. Now, after ten seasons, the series will be coming to an end, and the trailer for the final season is sure to have fans even more excited than they already are. Said trailer can be seen below, and fans can count down the days until season eleven of The Walking Dead debuts on AMC August 22nd.
Having been on the air for twelve years now, the universe at the center of The Walking Dead may not look the same as it did when it began. Some characters didn’t make it past the first season while others have matured tremendously over the course of the series, adapting to their surroundings as opposed to falling prey to them. This is, in part, what has made The Walking Dead such a captivating and memorable show, and why fans will be disappointed to see it go. It isn’t over just yet though, with the eleventh and final season set to premier in a few weeks.
