Fresh off of the series’ season 10 renewal, on Wednesday, AMC released some brand new images from the upcoming second half The Walking Dead’s ninth season in the form of detailed character posters and key art.
The new posters, which you can see below, show the characters Carol (Melissa McBride), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Judith (Cailey Fleming), and Daryl (Norman Reedus) in high-def and post-6-year time jump which we experienced in season 9. Carol stands proud and majestic, like a queen, but if you look closely, she’s still clutching on to her trusty knife. Michonne looks fierce and ready to spring into battle. Judith is wearing her dad’s sheriff’s hat symbolizing that she’s the one in charge now and Daryl is the only one staring off into the distance, away from the viewer. What could he be looking at, or who could he be watching?
Check out the new images below, plus some cool new season 9 key art.
The synopsis for the second half of season nine teases “disturbing and terrifying” trouble ahead as we dive deeper into their world. Check out the synopsis for season 9b below.
[row]“The second half of “The Walking Dead” Season 9 finds our groups of survivors, both old and new, continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves. What they do know is that they are in undeniable danger. They will soon realize the world just beyond does not operate as they thought. The group’s rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it’s unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out. All that is certain is the stakes are high and numerous.”[/row]
The Walking Dead returns on February 10th on AMC. You can also watch the midseason premiere episode right now on AMC’s streaming service, AMC Premiere. Season 10 of the series will premiere in October of 2019.
