Fans of The Walking Dead are particularly excited after spotting the return of a character in the new trailer.

AMC has released a brand new look at the 10th season's final six episodes, which will be broadcast from February 2020.

The clip introduces a new character played by Terminator 2 actor Robert Patrick and provides the first glimpse at Lucille, the wife of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

Lucille will appear in a flashback episode and is being played Morgan's real-life wife Hilarie Burton.

However, it's another character that is making waves – the eight year old version of Hershel Jr.

One person declared that Hershel Jr was "already [their] favourite" character.
