Talking about The Walking Dead Season 9 release date, we knew it all along without taking part in the meetings with the corporate suits and producers at the boardroom of AMC. The hit series, The Walking Dead will run for a ninth season.
Angela Kang, a writer, and co-executive producer were given the steering wheel as showrunner, and Scott M Gimple moved up a notch as Chief Content Officer to supervise the whole Walking Dead TV universe. This implies that Kang will make women in the show have a much more prominent role in their story arcs while Gimple supervises the big shakeup that the show is a dire need for and that is what fans expect.
With dwindling ratings for past seasons, the ninth season of the Walking Dead is set to have a significant shakeup to raise the expectations of the fans. With a six-minute trailer airing during Comic-Con 2018 and lots of teasing on its part, the storyline involving the All Out War is finally over. We’re likely to see a time jump at the beginning of the next season.

With the demise of Carl in the eighth’s season’s finale, the show is heading to a different direction to where the comic book fans are accustomed to, so there’s the second challenge for this series to beat because comic book fans will not know what’s next. What we do know is that there is a leadership battle, Rick and Maggie are dueling in wits over who gets to run the show, and we might get our first possible look at Whisperers.
The Walking Dead Season 9 Release date
Along with the trailer reveal, we know that The Walking Dead Season 9 is scheduled to start airing on AMC on October 7 in the United States of America, as for the United Kingdom, Fox airs the show after the premiere, so for the Brits, expect it on Monday October 8 with a slight possibility of a simultaneous cast with the US. Who knows? The guys at entertainment like to surprise us.
