As announced on The Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic Con on Friday, July 19, Kevin Carroll (The Leftovers, Snowfall) joins The Walking Dead cast as Virgil in the upcoming 10th season. Virgil is a highly intelligent and resourceful man who is desperately trying to get home to his family.
In the ten weeks leading up to the Season 10 premiere of The Walking Dead on Sunday, October 6 at 9pm ET/8pm CT, AMC will be revealing information on the new season each week across TWD social platforms. This will include photos, videos, and never before seen content.
Today, you can check it out as the network unveiled first-look images of Carroll as Virgil.
The Walking Dead is a story that started 10 years ago with one man trying to find his family. That family grew and gradually communities took shape. They fought and survived, thrived and gave birth to a new generation. It is a tale of humankind and there are more stories to tell.
It is now Spring, a few months after the end of Season 9, when our group of survivors dared to cross into Whisperer territory during the harsh winter. The collected communities are still dealing with the after effects of Alpha's horrific display of power, reluctantly respecting the new borderlines being imposed on them, all while organizing themselves into a militia-style fighting force, preparing for a battle that may be unavoidable.
But the Whisperers are a threat unlike any they have ever faced. Backed by a massive horde of the dead it is seemingly a fight they cannot win. The question of what to do and the fear it breeds will infect the communities and give rise to paranoia, propaganda, secret agendas, and infighting that will test them as individuals and as a society.
The very idea of whether civilization can survive in a world filled with the dead hangs in the balance.
The first big season 10 reveal came at San Diego Comic-Con earlier in the month, when the first trailer was released. The following week we got a first look at Thora Birch as Gamma. Gamma is going to step up the Whisperers way of life in The Walking Dead season 10. She is said to "believe 200 percent in both the group's animalistic way of life and in their merciless leader." This puts her at the extreme opposite of Alpha's daughter Lydia. With the addition of Thora Birch as Gamma, we're about to see the Whisperers gain even more power. Kevin Carroll is another newcomer to the hit AMC series and is playing Virgil, a survivor who is "anxious to get home to his family."
Please check back every Thursday for a new reveal, as we count down the weeks leading up to the Season 10 premiere of The Walking Dead on Sunday, October 6 at 9pm ET/8pm CT.
