Comic-Con 2018: The Walking Dead Season 9 Trailer Is Revealing
It's Rick's final season, I'm already tearing up.
After offering a teaser for The Walking Dead, AMC recently released a full length trailer for Season 9 at Comic-Con. The trailer is as lengthy as it is revealing; clocking in at just about six minutes, it has a lot to offer in terms of what we can expect from Season 9.
This season will take place ahead of where Season 8 left off with Negan captured and the Saviours beaten. It opens with Rick looking a little older with his grey beard, and the whole crew living happily inside a large network of communities. There are a ton of members, new and old, and for a while, everyone looks safe and happy building a home for the group, but it's not without some tension.
Rick has kept Negan in a cell this whole time, and apparently periodically checks in with him to let him know how the community is doing and how successful things can be without being run on fear and violence. Despite his status as Rick's prisoner, Negan is as cocky as ever, letting on that he believes this whole thing is going to go up in flames.
What appears to be some sort of post-apocalyptic paradise begins to tear at the seams as tensions between certain members of the group begin to flare up. Maggie is frustrated with Rick, Carol is frustrated with the new members, and Daryl is frustrated with the whole situation. By the end of the trailer, things don't look so copacetic, especially as the show's original corpsified villains show up to remind everyone what the true danger is.
Season 9 of The Walking Dead will premiere on October 7, and we're all wondering how they plan on getting Rick out of the picture as actor Andrew Lincoln confirmed that he will be leaving the show after this season.
