AMC's unstoppable zomb-pocalyse tale is back for another season, with the survivors trying to remain alive in a world of brain-munching ghouls and assorted maniacs.
Like many major series, The Walking Dead's 10th season has been split into two parts, with the first half airing last year.
That means that fans haven't been able to check in on the epic undead tale since December. Fortunately, the rest of the new season is about to begin.
What happened in the first part of the season?
Season 10 continued the focus on the group's battle with Alpha and her Whisperers – a sinister group who wear the skin of walkers so that they can walk among them. After the uneasy relationship between the two was broken by the Whisperers' massacre, the group set out after Alpha to bring her to justice once and for all.
The first half of season 10 ended with Dante finally being exposed as the Whisperers' spy after he attacked Rosita. He is imprisoned for his crimes before Gabriel murders him in his cell.
Meanwhile, the folks at Oceanside encounter a stranger named Virgil. While they initially suspect him of being a Whisperer as well, he gains their trust by leading Michonne to a naval base filled with valuable weapons.
Carol's group, containing Daryl, Aaron, Magna, Connie, Kelly, and Jerry, continue on their hunt for Alpha and her walker horde. They catch sight of Alpha and give chase, only to find themselves lured into a cave from which they cannot escape.
When the season last left off, they were stuck inside, surrounded by Alpha's walkers.
How does the second half begin?
The first episode of the new batch arrived in the US on Sunday 23 February, so we already have some idea of what happens.
Daryl is eventually able to lead the group out their seemingly hopeless situation, but not everyone makes it – Connie and Magna are both stranded inside the cave when a dynamite blast destroys their escape route.
Daryl begins trying to clear away the rubble so they can make it out but is stopped by Connie's sister, Kelly, who argues that doing so will only draw more walkers. As the episode ends, the ultimate fate of the two trapped characters is still unknown.
Elsewhere, Alpha begins to suspect Gamma after Negan informs her that she may be a spy for Alexandria.
In the most discussed scene of the new episode, Alpha then rewards ‘Negan’ by having sex with him, all while wearing her Whisperers flesh-mask, of course.
What will happen after that?
While nobody's safety is ever assured in The Walking Dead, one character whose story definitely seems to be coming to an end is the katana-wielding fan favourite Michonne.
The actor who plays her, Danai Gurira, has confirmed that this will be the final season in which her character appears. Usually that would mean a grisly death – but could the show have something else in store for Michonne?
The show's original hero, Rick (Andrew Lincoln), has been missing since 2018 but has not been definitively killed off. On top of that, it has been confirmed that his story will be continued with a series of spin-off movies.
Could Michonne join him on the big screen? Will Rick make a return to the TV series as well? We'll find out soon.
When are the new episodes on?
The second half of The Walking Dead season 10 will air each Monday at 9pm on FX, beginning on Monday 24 February 2020.
That means that UK viewers will get each new episode just a day after their American counterparts, which should minimise the chance of accidental spoilers.
