A show that has been running for nine seasons is already a pretty incredible feat in the world of television, but for a show to be heading into its ninth season more rejuvenated and sentimental than ever is even rarer, and The Walking Dead has new showrunner Angela Kang to thank for that.
On top of Kang helping bring the show back to its early roots that fans adored story-wise, The Walking Dead’ producer Gale Ann Herd also hinted that fans can expect to see those “shocker” moments on almost a weekly basis.
With news that Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan would be leaving the show, fans began to worry that The Walking Dead would soon become a different show, so to hear from the cast and creators that the opposite is what’s happening is both relieving and exciting.
So, what do you think? Are you getting excited about the new and improved season? Let us know!
The Walking Dead will return for season 9 on Sunday, October 7th on AMC.
