Get ready for a total zombie takeover. Earlier this week, AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan teased an expansion of The Walking Dead universe, which would extend through the next 10 years — if not longer. Now, a new report has shed some light on what those plans would entail, including a feature film, more shows and spinoffs, and a version of the hit series set in a different country.
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 will air its eighth season finale this Sunday, but it’s not just war at stake. According to cast departures and a new quote from exiting showrunner Scott Gimple, Sunday’s finale will be “the conclusion of the first eight seasons,” and lead to “a bigger, new narrative” next year.
Soft ratings on The Walking Dead Season 8 have raised questions of the series longevity, and we at last have an answer. The flagship AMC drama will return for a ninth season with (most of) its cast intact, though Angela Yang will take over for Scott Gimple as showrunner.
If Game of Thrones skipping 2018 has one advantage, it’s that next year will finally bring us a new king of TorrentFreak’s most-pirated TV. It totally won 2017, of course, but a few new additions like Rick and Morty or demotions for Arrow might make this a very different list going forward.
Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has booked plenty of gigs outside of AMC, but his newest move is bound to ruffle some feathers. Amazon has signed Kirkman to an exclusive overall deal for the next few years, along with Dead company Skybound Entertainment.

The Walking Dead has plenty of ground to cover when Season 7 picks up again in February, so is there time to introduce another community?

It’s been an exceptionally punishing year for fans of The Walking Dead, who first endured the cop-out of Negan’s entrance, a summer spent waiting, and about eight episodes since of misery under The Saviors’ reign. Rick will finally fight back when Season 7 returns in February, and Andrew Lincoln insists “There’s a lot more levity, if you can believe that.”
Considering Game of Thrones began its 2016 run with one of the series’ biggest reveals to date, and closed out the final 10-episode season with a hearty tease for summer 2017, is it any wonder the series continues to dominate the year’s most pirated TV? See what else made the list, including your next HBO obsession, and surprising entry from the comic world.
We’ve two Walking Dead episodes left in 2016, and it looks like next week’s penultimate “Sing Me a Song” might finally break with Season 7's piecemeal approach. Not only will Negan and the Saviors return, but our first clip sees Michonne out on the road, doing her best impression of The Wire.
