It is a confusing time to follow The Walking Dead. A few major upsets had fans wondering if Season 9 might break from the comic entirely, but first photos from the Georgia set tease a strange new (albeit familiar) look for the AMC zombie drama. Is that time-jump happening after all?
Soft ratings on The Walking Dead Season 8 have raised questions of the series longevity, and we at last have an answer. The flagship AMC drama will return for a ninth season with (most of) its cast intact, though Angela Yang will take over for Scott Gimple as showrunner.
It’s hard to say where exactly AMC’s Preacher would ruffle religious feathers, given the comic has satirized Christianity with gleeful aplomb since 1995. This past Monday’s “Dirty Little Secret” may have tipped the scales, as even the Catholic League is up in arms about an unholy sex scene.
‘The Walking Dead’ returns for Season 7 with a gruesome and punishing “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be,” finally revealing Negan’s victim(s) in an otherwise forgettable hour. Is AMC’s flagship hit finally broken beyond repair? Find out in our full review!
