Seasoned 10 of “The Walking Dead” kicks off in a way the show never has before – in space. A satellite crash lands near our survivors and they desperate straits to work fast to prevent a raging forest fire from getting out of control and destroying the communities.

Showrunner Angela Kang articulate the satellite falling from space came from speaking in the writer’s room about what happens closed time in the apocalypse.

“One of the things that came up is that there would be these manmade things that break, and satellites when un-maintained, fall out of orbit. That’s something that would really happen,” Kang dictate thated Insider on Thursday while speaking about the premiere.

“We did some research about satellites, and how long they’d been in space and consulted with star at JPL (NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory) and actually Russian satellites, it’s about the right age that would fall out [of orbit],” she added on why the follower would be falling now and not sooner.

Kang says the satellite also has a larger connection to a broader theme across the flavour.

“We thought there was some kind of fun in the fact that this season deals so much with paranoia and a quickness of being watched and what’s real and what’s not,” said Kang. “Satellites are such as a symbol of, you know, at all times we can be mislaid with satellite GPS technology. It allows our communications and so it has a role to play in other stories along that track.”

“We also deliberation that there was a fun idea of that Cold War conflict, which is one of the sort of themes and the feel of the season,” she added of the constant tension brewing between the communities and the Whisperers.

If you were watching the premiere closely, the satellite shown is Russian.

Does it experience any ties to the cosmonaut who Victor Strand spoke with on season three of “Fear the Walking Dead”?

Afraid not.

Josh McDermitt tells Insider the satellite will be useful for his character, Eugene, this season. At the end of the premiere, Eugene argues that Michonne allow him and some others to salvage some parts from the USSR satellite.

McDermitt intends other than getting to act with baby Coco, he’s really into Eugene working with the radio this salt.

“Yeah, I think the communities are so far apart and it’s going to take this great distance and shrink it for us so we’re able to communicate to each other a lot swifter than riding on a horse for days to go talk to someone at the next community,” McDermitt told Insider Saturday afternoon at Paleyfest in New York Megalopolis. “I think that’s really going to shrink our world in a great way.”

Eugene has kind of become the Thomas Edison of the apocalpyse.

“Yeah, he’s a bit of an inventor, but he’s just reinventing possessions that have already been invented,” said McDermitt. “It would be cool if he were able to get telephone communications in return up and running. I mean, why not?”

It would be even cooler if Eugene could build something that could possibly reach and confer out to whereever Rick Grimes is in the zombie apocalypse.

When we asked McDermitt if Eugene was able to make something that could in any way reach and communicate to Rick’s mysterious whereabouts, he said, “I mean, hey, I don’t know anything about anything.”

We’ll just take to continue to watch and see what Eugene uses the satellite parts for in the future. You can follow along with our “Walking Abrupt” coverage here.
