The Walking Dead: Shiva Saves, Judith Slays & 13 Other Hero Moments

When it comes to AMC's The Walking Dead, there's ten seasons worth of fine examples of heroism fans can point to. For us, the entire "Terminus" storyline was one that showed our heroes at their finest: working as a unit to take down a group of cannibals who we quickly lost sympathy for- especially when we realized that they had no idea they were "f**king with the wrong people" (with a machete-in-a-church driving that point home the hard way). Our second moment comes when Shiva saves Carl (Chandler Riggs) from the business end of Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) "Lucille" just as the cavalry arrives (with some great lines from Khary Payton's Ezekiel).

AMC has put together its own list of goosebump-causing excitement (including a choice that matches one of our top two). So from a heroic tiger saving Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) son and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) sacrificing herself in the fight against the Saviors to Judith (Cailey Fleming) showing off her Michonne (Danai Gurira) skills and Princess (Paola Lázaro) introducing herself in a very loud manner, here's a look back at 15 prime heroic moments:

So it looks like we made it safely to mid-August and everything still seems set in place: The Walking Dead: World Beyond premieres the same night as the tenth season "finale" of The Walking Dead makes it to our screens (Sunday, October 4, at 9 pm ET, followed by TWD: WB at 10 pm ET). Then the following week, Fear the Walking Dead starts up its sixth season (Sunday, October 11, at 9 pm ET, preceding TWD: WB)- and will resume production on the season in late August. And while there won't be the eleventh season this year, production is expected to resume in October (with the tenth season getting 6 additional episodes, expected to air in early 2021).

The Walking Dead season 10, episode 16 "A Certain Doom": Beta engages the final battle of the Whisperer War. Directed by Greg Nicotero, with a story by  Jim Barnes, Eli Jorné, and Corey Reed, and teleplay by Reed.

The Walking Dead: World Beyond delves into a new mythology and story that follows the first generation raised in a surviving civilization of the post-apocalyptic world. Two sisters along with two friends leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead on an important quest. Pursued by those who wish to protect them and those who wish to harm them, a tale of growing up and transformation unfurls across dangerous terrain, challenging everything they know about the world, themselves and each other. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. But all of them will find the truths they seek.

Season six of Fear the Walking Dead explores what has become of the unlikely family once united by a mission to help those in need. After being torn apart by Virginia (Colby Minifie) and her Pioneers, the group is now dispersed across her far-reaching settlements. Morgan's (Lennie James) last message at the end of season five implored the group to "Live" and this season we'll see what that means to each of them. Some will find the stability and opportunity within Virginia's communities to be intriguing, some will sink into darkness, while others will fight back against what has been forced upon them. Life behind Virginia's walls will test each and every one of them in different ways, forcing them to define who they are in this new world.
