‘The Walking Dead’ Season 9 Brings “Sophistication,” Higher Stakes

The Walking Dead season 9 will bring “sophistication” along with higher stakes, executive producer Scott Gimple tells TV Line.

The writer-producer has been with the zombie drama since its second season in 2011, and Gimple, newly appointed Chief Content Officer of the entire Walking Dead brand for AMC, is “enjoying seeing it come together,” he adds.

The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan Wants a Negan Spinoff

Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan has revealed he’d love to star in a Negan spinoff that goes more in depth into his fan-favorite villain, especially before the zombie apocalypse began on AMC’s The Walking Dead. As is customary on the show, we’ve seen hints and snippets of who Negan was before this outbreak through flashbacks, but as per the information he disclosed to Father Gabriel and Jadis, he simply can’t be trusted, considering he’s a master manipulator. “I would like to see Negan before the zombie apocalypse,” Morgan told Fandom. “… [Walking Dead creator] Robert Kirkman has done a little bit Read more »

Where Was ‘The Walking Dead’s F-Word?

Despite a new policy allowing AMC’s zombie shows to utilize the “f-dash-dash-dash word” twice per season, The Walking Dead season 8 never dropped an F-bomb.

(His colorful dialogue tends to lean more towards various uses of “sh—t” and genitalia-related euphemisms in the TV series.) Its counterpart, Fear The Walking Dead, nonchalantly dropped its first in episode 3×12 (courtesy of Frank Dillane’s Nick Clark), and again in 3×16 when Madison (Kim Dickens) scolded Nick with a well-placed “f—k you.” ComicBook.com was the Read more »
