AMC has put out a unique looking teaser for the upcoming season of The Walking Dead, which will be the show’s ninth overall.
This season is going to take place a year and a half after the events of last season, so much will be different when it returns in October. We also know for sure that actor Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, will be leaving the show this season, which will be a major event considering he’s been the face of the series since season one. I’m not sure how the show will continue without Rick Grimes, but if the numbers are high enough, I’m sure AMC will keep it running. As a fan though, I have a hard time believing that the show can be as good and as emotionally charged as it has been in the past without Rick Grimes. Even though these past two seasons have been a bit wonky, Rick still makes them feel relevant, so without him I just don’t know who will fill the character’s void. Daryl seems like everyone’s choice, but to me he’s a near mute character who’s never really led, so he would be a much different lead if that’s the case.
Only time will tell, and we will surely find out before all 16 of this season’s episodes air, so in the meantime check out the artsy fartsy tease for The Walking Dead above.
