Yesterday, AMC gave us a little taste of the zombie-drama to come with a quick teaser for The Walking Dead Season 9. On the heels of today’s Comic-Con panel, the first full trailer for the pivotal upcoming season has landed online, offering a sneak peek at the survivor factions as they attempt to forge a new, more peaceful life with one another in the wake of Negan’s reign of terror.
The Walking Dead is no stranger to unexpected deaths, but deviations from the comic often raise questions. To wit, a fan-favorite star now confirms his surprisingly early exit was a specific request to showrunners, given behind-the-scenes turmoil.
What does Rick Grimes’ facial hair look like on the big screen? Walking Dead and Fear fans alike will get the chance to find out, as AMC is sending April’s big Season 8 finale and Fear premiere to theaters for one night only.
