New TV Spot For THE WALKING DEAD Season 9 - It's The Start of a Whole New World
AMC is making big future plans for The Walking Dead franchise as they are currently planning for a whole other decade for it that will include new spinoff shows and even movies. Before we get to any of that, though, The Walking Dead Season 9 is set to debut next month and today we have a new TV spot to share with you! It offers a little bit more insight into what’s in store for the characters that have survived this long.
One thing that the trailer puts a focus on is the fact that this is the start of a whole new world. The question is… what is that new world going to look like in the future? One thing is for sure, it’s not going to include Rick Grimes. It seems like people aren’t too happy with him. I’m really interesting in seeing how this next chapter of the story plays out.
Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. With Negan’s life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him. By making the unilateral decision to spare Negan, Rick upheld the values of his late son, Carl, championed in order to build for the future, but created conflict within his group.
Now, we see our 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 Season 9 premieres with Rick Grimes' final episodes beginning October 7th on AMC in the US and October 8 on FOX in the UK.
