The Walking Dead came back for the second half of its ninth season six Sundays ago on AMC and here’s another brand new preview of episode 16, its season finale, from Rotten Tomatoes TV…
Here’s the episode synopsis: In the aftermath of an overwhelming loss, the communities must brave a ferocious blizzard; as one group deals with an enemy from within, another is forced to make a life or death decision.
In the trailer for the episode, Alpha (Samantha Morton) looks on while Beta (Ryan Hurst) says, “No one else will have to die now that deal is done,” and then Daryl (Norman Reedus) appears to walk off with them. But what leads up to that relatively chatty moment with the Whisperers? A savage beat down, shown here in our exclusive clip from Sunday’s episode. Daryl, Michonne (Danai Gurira), Carol (Melissa McBride), and Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura) must take out the group’s usual Walker onslaught before negotiations can begin.
And here’s the season information:
The ninth season of The Walking Dead, an American post-apocalyptic horror television series on AMC premiered on October 7, 2018, and will consist of 16 episodes, split into two parts, each consisting of eight episodes. The second part of the season premiered on 10 February 10, 2019. Developed for television by Frank Darabont, the series is based on the eponymous series of comic books by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. The executive producers are Kirkman, David Alpert, Scott M. Gimple, Angela Kang, Greg Nicotero, Tom Luse, Denise Huth and Gale Anne Hurd, with Kang taking over the role of showrunner from Gimple.
Eighteen months after the defeat of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) under an alliance of communities spearheaded by Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), the season focuses on the united communities as they face obstacles and dangers both outside and inside their alliance, with the threat of the mysterious Whisperers looming.
The ninth season is the final season for lead actor Andrew Lincoln, who has portrayed Rick Grimes since the series’ first season. Lauren Cohan, who portrayed Maggie Greene since the second season, only appeared in the first five episodes of this season due to other commitments.
