Walking Dead trailer reveals heartache for Edinburgh’s Pollyanna McIntosh

The latest trailer for The Walking Dead reveals a major spoiler – and it’s not good news for Edinburgh-raised actress Pollyanna McIntosh.

Warning, contains spoilers.

The second half of the hit zombie show’s eighth season returns to AMC on Sunday 25 February in the US and will follow a day later on FOX UK.

As previously reported, Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) will be leaving the show as he was bitten by a walker earlier in the season.

But the latest trailer for the remaining episodes of season eight teases a massacre carried out by arch villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his Saviors.

Luckily for Rick Grimes and his crew, the group that appears set to be cleaned out is the Scavengers, as hinted at in the teaser clip, which you can watch below.

In it, Scavenger leader Jadis (McIntosh) can be seen in tears and alone.

Another shot shows Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) being pursued by a group of walkers in the junkyard where the Scavengers live.

There’s also a short scene showing Negan’s lieutenant and most trusted right-hand man, Simon (Steven Ogg), having an angry exchange with Jadis and threatening one of her people.

Fans have speculated that this could this be the pre-story to the next big antagonist from the comic books being introduced – Alpha, who leads a brutal group called The Whisperers.

Watch the new Walking Dead trailer below.
