AMC released the first photos and official synopsis from the final season of "The Walking Dead."
The images from the season premiere feature Negan, Maggie's group, Carol, Kelly, and more.
The extended 11th season of "TWD" kicks off on August 22.
It looks like Maggie, Daryl, and Father Gabriel are leading a search down in some tunnels for supplies as the season begins.
According to the season 11 synopsis, sent to Insider, the Alexandria community is "severely compromised" after the Whisperers ransacked it on the season 10 finale. With little food and more people from Maggie's group, which is apparently called the Wardens, Daryl and company appear to take their search for survival underground.
Here's the lengthy season 11 synopsis in full, courtesy of AMC:
"Previously on 'The Walking Dead,' our survivors confronted past demons and combated new threats, with friendships and relationships suffering from the mounting collateral damage that is the apocalypse. Alexandria is severely compromised, left a former shell of the home it once was from the carnage and devastation left behind by the Whisperers.
Now all who live in Alexandria struggle to refortify it and feed its increasing number of residents, which include the survivors from the fall of the Kingdom and the burning of Hilltop; along with Maggie and her new group, the Wardens. Alexandria has more people than it can manage to feed and protect. Their situation is dire as tensions heat up over past events and self-preservation rises to the surface within the ravaged walls.
They must secure more food while they attempt to restore Alexandria before it collapses like countless other communities they have come across throughout the years. But where and how? More haggard and hungrier than ever before, they must dig deeper to find the effort and strength to safeguard the lives of their children, even if it means losing their own.
Meanwhile, unbeknownst to those at Alexandria, Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko, and Princess are still being held captive by mysterious soldiers who are members of a larger and unforthcoming group."
Carol, Kelly, and Magna may still be searching for Connie.
When we last saw Connie (Laruen Ridloff), we learned she survived the cave-in at the start of season 10. After being missing all season (Ridloff was filming Marvel's "Eternals"), Virgil found her in the woods in the season 10 finale.
Showrunner Angela Kang told us the only reason we didn't see Connie during the season 10 bonus episodes is because of a scheduling conflict. Kang told Insider we should get an episode with Connie coming up.
"We have a big episode planned for her," Kang told Insider in October. "At the time that we had to kind of lock these episodes, her schedule was still up in the air. But we have, I think, an episode that should be really cool for people coming up afterwards. So we're working on that for her."
Rosita will finally be back. We see her here with Carol and Maggie.
Rosita hasn't been on "TWD" in a while, but she'll be back in action with the other women of the show when the season 11 premiere airs.
It looks like Carol will cross paths and team up with Maggie and Rosita at some point on the premiere.
As noted in the season synopsis, the survivors may have split up into different teams to scavenge for food and supplies in different locations. But it looks like they'll all join up at some point.
Negan's going to be fighting off some walkers, but don't expect to see him back with his trusty bat.
"TWD" recently peeled back some of the layers of the former villain to give fans more of Negan's backstory. Kang told Insider it's a story they've wanted to adapt for years.
On the episode titled "Here's Negan," the character decided to skip out on a life of solitude to try and make things work in Alexandria — something that will prove difficult as he's living alongside Maggie (Lauren Cohan), whose husband Negan brutally murdered right in front of her years ago.
"I think that there is an unresolved tension with Maggie and having them in a story together, I think it is going to be really interesting," Kang told Insider earlier this year.
"For Negan, I think he's at a place where he feels like, 'Haven't I earned a spot?' and I think that that's kind of part of what his reflecting on his life is telling him like, 'Oh man, it's been easier for me at times to avoid the hard things. For me, it'd be easy to be out here in exile. It's harder to kind of go back and face the wife of the person that I beat down and to figure out how to move forward with my life,'" Kang said, adding that Maggie has to decide "whether forgiveness is truly possible for her" when it comes to Negan.
Meanwhile, Eugene, Yumiko, Ezekiel, and Princess are still being held at the Commonwealth.
The last time we saw the four, they were getting bags placed over their heads. They were likely being transported to the Commonwealth's large home.
It looks like the group will have to face the undead in a subway car.
Somehow, in 10 seasons, we have yet to see zombies on a train. The above image gives us "The Last of Us" vibes.
