Watch the New Captivating Kaleidoscope Teaser for ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 9

The brand new teaser for The Walking Dead‘s ninth season is simple, short, and absolutely gorgeous!

The teaser shows all of our favorite Walking Dead characters looking straight into the camera with a beautiful kaleidoscope effect happening throughout the clip. Combine that with the music, and the teaser is truly captivating.

The new teaser is careful not to reveal any plot points relating to the upcoming season, however, each character in the teaser is shown putting away their weapons. Often times over the past eight seasons, photos, key art, and promos have shown the characters preparing for a fight and drawing their weapons, particularly during last season’s teasers gearing up for all-out war. It’s interesting to see these characters who have fought for so long now putting away their weapons for the first time in a while.

That minor detail combined with the new, bright Walking Dead logo is giving us some hope that perhaps there are some more serene times ahead in the ninth season.

Check out the trippy teaser below.

Earlier this week, AMC released the official synopsis for The Walking Dead‘s ninth season. While it does, in fact, point to some hopefulness and rebuilding, of course, in the apocalypse world, that never lasts long. A new threat lurks just around the corner. Check out the full synopsis below.

[row]”Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. With Negan’s life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him. By making the unilateral decision to spare Negan, Rick upheld the values his late son, Carl, championed in order to build for the future, but created conflict within his group.

Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick’s steadfast leadership. It is a time of relative peace among the communities as they work together, looking to the past to forge the future, but the world they knew is rapidly changing as man-made structures continue to degrade, and nature takes over, changing the landscape and creating new challenges for our survivors.

As time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles, danger, and of course, walkers, but nothing quite prepares them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.”[/row]

The Walking Dead will return to AMC with new episodes starting on October 7th at 9 PM EST.
