The Walking Dead season 9 trailer: six minutes of action and tension

The Walking Dead season 9 premieres October 7 on AMC.

In the five-minute trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con, the tension between communities looks set to skyrocket as warfare breaks out between Rick, Daryl and Maggie.

Sounding emotional, the 44-year-old actor told the Comic-Con audience: "There seems to be an elephant in the room and I think many of you want to ask a question whether or not it is my last year". And it appears fans are in for some big changes.

Andrew Lincoln has confirmed that he is indeed walking away from The Walking Dead.

Morton was most recently seen on the big screen as Mary Lou in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and also plays the role of Margaret Wells in Harlots, now in its second season on Hulu.


The Walking Dead has revealed their casting for the important new additions to the Alexandria group of survivors on the series, a group of characters led by Magna.

"I truly believe this is the best leading man in television", Danai Gurira, who plays Rick's lover Michonne, said of Lincoln during today's Comic-Con. "I mean, I'm speaking on behalf of Robert Kirkman, but it was sold to me by my agent that it was seen through the eyes of Rick and then it would turn into an ensemble".

Andrew Lincoln took to the Hall H stage at San Diego Comic Con 2018 to confirm what's always been rumored - that his character Rick Grimes will exit the show during The Walking Dead season 9. I love the people that make this show.

"You know, these guys here and everybody back in Atlanta [where the show films] are the greatest surrogate family I could have wished for but, I do have a real family and it is time for me to go home". I'm also particularly fond of the people who watch the show.
