Spoilers: Walking Dead ‘Time Jump’ And More In Store For Season 9

Published

on

The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Oct. 7 and season 9 looks to take the show in a new direction after the Rick-versus-Negan finale. With a new showrunner taking the helm, expect to see “walkers” return as a larger threat and some familiar faces leave the show.

TWD Fast Forwards To A Simpler Time

The show fast forwards a few years into the future when Alexandria, Hilltop, The Kingdom and The Sanctuary communities are flourishing. However, we’ll also see the characters are increasingly having to make due without modern conveniences such as guns and cars—instead relying on hand-made weapons and horses—while the groups figure out how to build a future together. As we see problems start to arise and rifts start to form, we’ll have few episodes to solve them while knowing two beloved characters are likely leaving.

‘Frenemy’ Shane Returns?

It’s been confirmed that Jon Bernthal will return in season 9 to reprise his role as Shane Walsh. The friend-turned-enemy met his end in season 2 after Grimes stabbed him and his son Carl shot a zombified version of Walsh. With that in mind, it’s likely Walsh will return as a hallucination or in a flashback. However, another of Grimes’ enemies seems very much alive…
