With the season 10 premiere of Walking Dead only a month away, it’s the perfect time to start your rewatch. Thankfully, Netflix has officially added season 9 to their U.S. catalog, giving you ample time to go back and relive the highs and lows of your favorite survivors. Season 9 also marked Andrew Lincoln’s final season, and who doesn’t need some Rick Grimes in their life right about now?
In addition to Rick’s departure, the season introduced a time jump, which left almost all of the communities very disconnected. As it dives into what happened to drive the groups apart, a new enemy was quietly making their entrance. With the introduction of The Whisperers, led by Samantha Morton’s Alpha, fans were able to see one of the comic’s best villains come to life. Unfortunately, Alpha and Beta’s threats eventually led to that devastating pike scene, resulting in the deaths of some fan-favorite characters.
The Walking Dead returns to AMC for its tenth season on Sunday, October 6th – so it’s time to get rewatching! Season 9 is streaming on Netflix now!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
