THE WALKING DEAD: DEAD CITY New Trailer Teases Negan and Maggie


In the highly anticipated teaser trailer for AMC‘s The Walking Dead: Dead City, fans are treated to a thrilling glimpse of what lies ahead. The trailer showcases a captivating reunion between two iconic characters, Negan portrayed by the brilliant Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Maggie brought to life by the talented Lauren Cohan. Together, they embark on a daring rescue mission that takes them deep into the heart of post-apocalyptic Manhattan—a once vibrant metropolis now overrun by hordes of relentless walkers.

As Negan and Maggie traverse the treacherous urban landscape, a twist of fate casts a shadow over their path. Negan, a complex and controversial figure with a troubled past, finds himself marked as a wanted man, pursued relentlessly by the determined New Babylon Marshal, Perlie Armstrong, portrayed by the remarkable Gaius Charles. The trailer offers a glimpse of an imposing wanted poster, magnifying the mounting pressure on Negan.

In the midst of this grim pursuit, Charles sheds light on the enigmatic location of New Babylon—an amalgamation of surviving states striving to rebuild a shattered world. As Marshal Armstrong, his duty lies in upholding justice, safeguarding his community, and taming the chaos that prevails. However, his singular focus on apprehending Negan proves to be an immense challenge, as complications arise during their tense game of cat and mouse.

Armstrong emerges as a compelling character, a devoted family man driven by an unwavering belief in his pursuit of justice. His unyielding resolve and unwavering determination serve as both a strength and a vulnerability. As the trailer hints, the lines between right and wrong become blurred, and the complexities of survival in a decimated world start to test his principles.

With the tantalizing teaser trailer unveiling these intriguing story elements, fans are left eagerly anticipating the upcoming season of The Walking Dead: Dead City. The series promises a thrilling blend of heart-pounding action, gripping character dynamics, and moral dilemmas against the haunting backdrop of a post-apocalyptic Manhattan infested with walkers. Brace yourselves for an intense journey that explores the depths of humanity’s resilience and the unyielding pursuit of redemption, justice, and survival.

Series creator and showrunner Eli Jorné rent on to talk about the relationship of Negan and Maggie in the series saying:

“It’s interesting because we see a very unprocessed level of trauma that we know happened between Maggie and Negan. In Dead City, we really get a chance to [ask], ‘What is this? What does it take to move through it?’ And more than anything, it’s a chance for us to be forced together on this mission. The tension and unmovable things are still very present. We’ve seen them intersect so often, but in this show, it’s really this tunnel that they’re trapped in to face things they may have run away from, more so what Maggie has run away from and what Negan[‘s presence] brings up for her. It’s like an exercise in intimacy with the worst person.”

Jorné further explained the complexity of their relationship this time around:

“It’s the next chapter in the story of Maggie and Negan, and so in that sense, it’s a lot of grief, trauma, and loss on both sides and how do you navigate that? How does Maggie look in Negan’s face every day and remember what he did to the love of her life? That’s still a huge part of the show. For anybody who’s watched the walking dead all these years and connected to those characters, we’re continuing the story, growing it, evolving it, and deepening it in a whole new landscape.”

The dynamic between these two characters will be interesting for the creative team to play with. There are also a lot of other characters that will be introduced in the show and when talking about that, Jorné said:

“There’s a lot of new characters that you’re going to meet, and I think they’re all unique and exciting in new ways. They all bring something new to the universe and to this world. And they bring something new out of Maggie and Negan, too, because Maggie and Negan are always at the center of this.”
