Following the news that “The Walking Dead” universe plans to stick around for another decade, a new teaser for this season has been released, reminding us that ninth season will be the last for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).
“Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman won’t say how Rick will go but he did say this:
…got something amazing planned. I wouldn’t want to spoil anything, but anybody who’s been a fan of his journey, who loves Rick Grimes, who loves the world of The Walking Dead, you’re going to want to see what we do.”
Now, viewers will see the survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick’s steadfast leadership. It is a time of relative peace among the communities as they work together, looking to the past to forge the future, but the world they knew is rapidly changing as man-made structures continue to degrade, and nature takes over, changing the landscape and creating new challenges for our survivors. As time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles, danger, and of course, walkers, but nothing quite prepares them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.
“The Walking Dead‘s” ninth season premieres on AMC October 7, 2018.
