More zombies are coming your way on The Walking Dead season 10's second half.

The AMC drama returns for season 10B soon and will follow up on the nail-biting cliffhangers from the November midseason finale. Fans will finally find out the fates of Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride), who are trapped in a cave with a horde of walkers.

Star Danai Gurira is expected to depart the show in the back half of The Walking Dead season 10, so expect to see some kind of resolution for Michonne, who set sail to look for high-powered weapons.

AMC has not announced any new cast members for The Walking Dead season 10 part 2. However, several actors are likely to depart if characters are killed off. And fans are well aware that Gurira will only appear in a handful of episodes before leaving the series.

There is a small chance that Lauren Cohan could return as Maggie. The actress left the series in season 9 to star in the short-lived ABC show Whiskey Cavalier. After it was canceled, Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang announced at New York Comic Con in October 2019 that Cohan would be coming back. While Maggie is not expected to appear until season 11, it’s possible Cohan could make a cameo toward the end of season 10.

The Walking Dead season 10 plot: What to expect 

The war with the Whisperers will continue to take center stage on The Walking Dead season 10 part 2.  AMC’s official synopsis reads, "The collective communities must come together and possibly sacrifice all they have to find a way to silence the Whisperers once and for all. Otherwise, Alpha will ensure they face a certain doom."

The Walking Dead season 10 episode 9, titled "Squeeze," will follow up on the precarious situation of several key characters. The midseason finale ended with Daryl, Carol, Aaron, Magna, Connie, Jerry, and Kelly trapped in a cave with a horde of walkers that Alpha had gathered together. To get out, they will not only have to evade zombies but the sadistic Whisperers. 

And even if they manage to survive, the group will still have to face Alpha, who seems to have recruited Negan to her side. Then again, the former Saviours leader might be playing her and is secretly using this as an opportunity to kill Alpha.

Another huge cliffhanger was Michonne sailing away with Virgil to find bigger weapons at an abandoned naval base. Whether she finds those weapons and is able to bring them back to Alexandria remains to be seen. 

Meanwhile, back at home, Gabriel unleashed his inner demons by killing Dante. Now that his moral code has been compromised, will the once pacifist priest completely break bad? Walking Dead fans are also speculating that Gabriel may die in an upcoming zombie attack on Alexandria. 

In the comics, the Whisperers organize an incursion of walkers into the community and Andrea is bitten and dies in the chaos. However, in the show, Andrea is long dead, so it’s possible that Gabriel is killed that way, instead.
