With Season 9 the last time that we’ll see Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes show up on ‘The Walking Dead,’ it is almost sad to see these cast portraits come up. However, even with an internal civil war potentially on the horizon, most of these shots seem to be showing better times ahead. These good times aren’t likely to last long, but it’ll be nice to see the characters enjoying a measure of happiness before everything inevitably falls apart once again.
First up we have a shot of Danai Gurira as Michonne reaching for her trusty samurai sword.
Second up is Andrew Lincoln in what will likely be one of his last promo shots of Rick Grimes with some extremely short hair.
Lauren Cohan isn’t looking too pregnant as Maggie in this one. With a massive time jump expected, this shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Norman Reedus’s Daryl might be sporting his crossbow but we’ve learned that he’ll have some new weapons of choice in the upcoming season.
Everyone is dying to see Melissa McBride’s take on Carol making another comeback on the show!
Speaking of Carol, this Queen has found a King in Khary Payton’s Ezekiel!
Seth Gilliam’s sight won’t be quite what it once was when Father Gabriel returns.
Will Josh McDermitt’s Eugene redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow survivors after betraying Negan?
Rosita is looking rather calm for a change as Christian Serratos seems to be taking it easy in this shot.
Ross Marquand’s Aaron looks ready for action.
Oh Avi Nash, no matter how much Siddiq can stand out going forward, we’ll always remember you as being partially responsible for Carl Grimes’ death.
I’m sure there were fun choices on the part of the cinematographer to put a halo of light around Tom Payne’s Jesus.
Katelyn Nacon’s Enid is one of the many characters whose arcs will be changed due to the death of Carl last season.
I still don’t trust Jadis and Pollyanna McIntosh does look like she could be up to something here.
Everyone loves Jerry and I’m thrilled to see that Cooper Andrews is finding more roles outside of ‘The Walking Dead.’ That being said, I hope he’ll have a larger role to play as the series goes forward.
Alanna Masterson’s Tara may have been able to forgive last season, but will she be able to forget?
In the time that has passed it would seem that Callan McAuliffe’s Alden has gained some measure of trust if he’s still allowed to be walking around with a knife.
