Last Updated on July 30, 2021

We're less than two months out from the "beginning of the end" of The Walking Dead, as part 1 of the show's eleventh and final season is scheduled to begin airing on AMC on Sunday, August 22nd. To promote the show's return, a new teaser has been released online and can be seen above.

Season 11 will consist of 24 episodes that will apparently be released in three blocks of 8. The titles for the first batch of episodes were recently revealed: 

Season 11A Episode Titles:

11.01 – “Acheron: Part I”

11.02 – “Acheron: Part II”

11.03 – “Hunted”

11.04 – “Rendition”

11.05 – “Out of the Ashes”

11.06 – “On the Inside”

11.07 – “Promises Broken”

11.08 – “For Blood”

Along with that, the synopses for the first two episodes of the season have also been shared by AMC. Here they are: 

Episode 11.01: “Acheron: Part I”
Director: Kevin Dowling
Writers: Angela Kang and Jim Barnes

Returning to Alexandria from a critical food mission, the group realizes it isn’t enough. Maggie proposes a new plan, potentially a suicide mission. What choice do they have? They must find more food for all their people in order to survive and efficiently rebuild Alexandria. If they don’t, Alexandria falls, taking them down with it. Once on the road, a violent storm erupts forcing them underground into a subway tunnel. As nerves fray and suspicions increase, chaos ensues. The terror is relentless as our people get a glimpse of what Maggie and her group endured prior to returning to Alexandria. Meanwhile, those captured by the strange soldiers are relocated to another undisclosed location.

Episode 11.02: “Acheron: Part II”
Director: Kevin Dowling
Writers: Angela Kang and Jim Barnes

The group discovers a member did not make it to safety inside the subway car. Surrounded by walkers, going back out into the tunnel to search is a guaranteed death wish. All eyes are on Negan as the rule of survival shifts. It is no longer No Man Left Behind. The motto now is We Keep Going. With very little ammo and energy remaining, the group must ready themselves as the walkers have found a way inside the subway train. Meanwhile, Daryl is in his own intense hellish situation trying to find Dog and finding more than he expected; and Yumiko challenges the process at the Commonwealth outpost, which threatens her future and that of Eugene, Ezekiel, and Princess.

The Walking Dead season 11 stars returning cast members Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Cailey Fleming, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Nadia Hilker, Lauren Ridloff, Cooper Andrews, Callan McAuliffe, Eleanor Matsuura, and Cassady McClincy. They are being joined by new additions Margot Bingham as Stephanie and Michael James Shaw as Mercer.

I thought seasons 9 and 10 were pretty good and that Angela Kang was able to freshen the show up a bit when she became the new showrunner. I look forward to seeing how they're going to wrap it all up.
