If you saw our recent character promotional shots for the ninth season of ‘The Walking Dead‘ there won’t be too much new here visually in the latest teaser trailer for the show. You can see where they got the shots from, and while everything is shown in a cool kaleidoscopic style, it was the basis for all of these newly released stills.
You can check out the new teaser for the upcoming season right here!
If you want to know what to expect in the upcoming season, the network has also included an in-depth synopsis of where the season will be heading:
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 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.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, “The Walking Dead” reigns the number one drama on television among adults 18-49 for the last six seasons. The series is executive produced by chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, showrunner Angela Kang, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Tom Luse and Denise Huth.
Not much of this can be thought of as new as we’ve been hearing a lot about these plot points for months now. It does clarify how Negan will be included and what that decision will mean for our survivors which hasn’t been too explicitly spelled out in the past.
