AMC’s The Walking Dead season nine’s first half finale killed off yet another major character. And based on the first official trailer for season nine’s second half, fans of the zombie apocalypse series can expect dramatic changes in the group dynamics when the series returns.
In addition to releasing the first season nine part two trailer, AMC confirmed the series will return on Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT. The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus’ road trip series, Ride with Norman Reedus, will also return to AMC’s primetime lineup on February 10th.
Season nine is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunner Angela Kang, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Tom Luse and Denise Huth. The second half of the current season stars Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Alanna Masterson, Ross Marquand, Seth Gilliam, Josh McDermitt and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Per AMC, The Walking Dead season nine part two “finds our groups of survivors, both old and new, continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves. What they do know is that they are in undeniable danger. They will soon realize the world just beyond does not operate as they thought. The group’s rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it’s unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before.
The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out. All that is certain is the stakes are high and numerous.”
