Season 10 of The Walking Dead is rising from the grave.

As previously announced, the 10th season has been extended for six additional episodes and now we know those will start airing on February 29.

When the episodes return, there will be a few new cast members, among them Terminator 2 star Robert Patrick as a character named Mays. He’ll be joined by Hilarie Burton Morgan as Negan’s wife, Lucille, and Okea Eme-Akwari as a new character named Elijah.

For a taste of what Mays has in store for the show, The Walking Dead Twitter account provided this little clip.
