AMC has just released a brand new teaser video a week before the Season 6 return of The Walking Dead. This trailer, currently dubbed the “Red Teaser” promises a whole new world of trouble for the Walking Dead crew.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about both the comic book and TV series of The Walking Dead. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.
Thanks to a very quick thinking Walking Dead fan, Cassidy Frazee, we now have footage of the latest Walking Dead teaser video released tonight on AMC. She has dubbed the new video the “Red Teaser” and judging by the overall look of the video, the second half of season 6 of The Walking Dead could very well be filled to overflowing with death, blood and destruction!
UPDATE: A new video has been uploaded for this clip that is better quality. Thanks again to Cassidy for alerting us to this latest trailer before other outlets had a chance to upload the content. The new video has been supplied by YouTube user tkkarle1.
The video only runs for 19 seconds but shows a sea of red. Among the images are Carol (Melissa McBride) crawling towards her knife, Michonne (Danai Gurira) and her katana, Carl (Chandler Riggs), Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Negan’s group, multiple walkers and the walls of Alexandria. The video ends with the tagline; “Face a larger world.”
AMC also released another teaser video just a few days ago also hinting at carnage in the second half of Season 6. This video includes interviews with the cast of The Walking Dead as well as some footage from the first half of Season 6.
Norman Reedus (who plays fan favorite, Daryl Dixon) announces, “We don’t all survive, and we don’t all take it very well.” This ominous statement lingers throughout the video as other cast members also promise that the second half of Season 6 of The Walking Dead will be very hard on the group. Co-executive producer, Denise Huth, talks about the potential for “a couple [of episodes] in the back half that are a little bit smaller and more intimate as far as the number of characters involved.” While this could indicate the loss of life for some of the main characters, AMC is know for producing episodes that focus on only a small number of characters, so Huth could also be alluding to this.
Steven Yeun (who plays Glenn Rhee) also talks about how it is the sum of the whole group that protects the individuals within it, individuals who just might not be able to survive the zombie apocalypse separately. He does also suggest that people outside this core group don’t actually know what they are dealing with. Comic book fans can read what they like into what Yeun has to say about what will happen in the second half of season 6, especially once executive producer, Gale Anne Hurd, talks about how individuals will have to deal with their inner demons like they haven’t had to before.
Fans of The Walking Dead have been dreading the anticipated arrival of Negan as much as they have been anticipating it. But for Andrew Lincoln, he is actually looking forward to the death and destruction when he announces that the television series has finally caught up to a part in the comic books he has been anticipating for some time.
“It’s a part of the comic book that I’ve been looking forward to getting to. We do face the most formidable and terrifying threat.”
