In not-so-shocking news, AMC has announced that The Walking Dead is coming back for a 10th season. While no one really expected The Walking Dead not to receive a renewal for season 10, today showrunner Angela Kang confirmed on social media that season 10 of The Walking Dead is happening.
Based on the social media post, it looks like the Whisperers will continue to be a threat in the 10th season. If the show follows the comic the Whisperers will have an important storyline and the survivors will have to push themselves to new limits in order to deal with the threat that they present. Samantha Morton is set to make her debut as Alpha in the Mid-Season Nine premiere with Ryan Hurst as Beta coming shortly after her.
Based on the Image Comics series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, AMC’s The Walking Dead has been on the air for nine years and spawned the spin-off Fear the Walking Dead. A series of movies starring Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) is also in development.
The Walking Dead TV series returns for the back half of its ninth season on February 10, 2019 at 9 pm ET. Fear the Walking Dead will return for its fifth season in 2019.
