The Walking Dead season 8 episode 6 trailer brings back Michonne, Rosita and Carl

The trailer for next week's episode of The Walking Dead season 8 has been released teasing the return of several big characters.

Rick (Andrew Lincoln) returns to the Junkyard in a bid to strike up another deal with leader Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) following her betrayal in the season 7 finale - this time, however, he's alone.

“Same thing I wanted before - a deal,” he tells them, adding: “Or we destroy you. My people will win.”

Elsewhere, Daryl seems to have found an ally in Tara with the both of them seeming to hatch a plan to go rogue in their bid to break away from Rick's plan and kill Negan.

The next episode - titled 'The King, the Widow and R' (referencing the three characters Negan wants to publicly kill) - also sees the return of Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Rosita (Christian Serratos) who finally leave Alexandria having stayed behind in the season premiere.

You can watch the full trailer below.

This week's episode of The Walking Dead caught up with Negan and Father Gabriel ending with a cliffhanger which has thrown the latter's fate into question.

The Walking Dead season 8 airs every Sunday in the US on AMC with the UK premiere arriving the following evening on FOX. It will also be available on NOWTV
