As always, The Walking Dead is really going all out with its new season. Check out the very dramatic and tastefully lit Season 9 character images in the gallery above.
Season 9 is set to be Rick Grimes’ (Andrew Lincoln) last, a fact which seems to have been not-so-slyly touched upon in the season’s official poster. We do love a bit of symbolic red.
Read the synopsis for Series 9 here:
Rick upheld the values 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 civilisation 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.
The Walking Dead Season 9 premieres at 9pm on 8 October on FOX in the UK. Get all the latest horror news with every issue of SciFiNow.
