Get ready for a total zombie takeover. Earlier this week, AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan teased an expansion of The Walking Dead universe, which would extend through the next 10 years — if not longer. Now, a new report has shed some light on what those plans would entail, including a feature film, more shows and spinoffs, and a version of the hit series set in a different country.
Yesterday, AMC gave us a little taste of the zombie-drama to come with a quick teaser for The Walking Dead Season 9. On the heels of today’s Comic-Con panel, the first full trailer for the pivotal upcoming season has landed online, offering a sneak peek at the survivor factions as they attempt to forge a new, more peaceful life with one another in the wake of Negan’s reign of terror.
Before The Walking Dead shambles into Comic-Con tomorrow with a full trailer, AMC has debuted the first official teaser for Season 9. The brief sneak peek offers a look at the various communities attempting to rebuild in the wake of Negan’s terror, while Danai Gurira’s Michonne talks to Lauren Cohan’s Maggie about setting new rules for how they should treat one another. Should go over well!
It is a confusing time to follow The Walking Dead. A few major upsets had fans wondering if Season 9 might break from the comic entirely, but first photos from the Georgia set tease a strange new (albeit familiar) look for the AMC zombie drama. Is that time-jump happening after all?
It’s hard not to connect The Walking Dead ratings with fatigue of its three-season villain, Negan. Season 8 cleared a path for a new adversary altogether, and new casting info may have confirmed a long-awaited foe will finally suit up against Rick.
