A new trailer for “The Walking Dead” season nine can be viewed here:
The second half of “The Walking Dead” season nine finds our groups of survivors, both old and new, continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves. What they do know is that they are in undeniable danger. They will soon realize the world just beyond does not operate as they thought. The group’s rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it’s unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out. All that is certain is the stakes are high and numerous.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, “The Walking Dead” tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse and follows a group of survivors who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The series is executive produced by chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, showrunner Angela Kang, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Tom Luse and Denise Huth.
“Ride with Norman Reedus” follows “The Walking Dead” star and motorcycle enthusiast Norman Reedus as he hits the open road to explore local bike culture and celebrate the best and brightest collectors, mechanics, and craftsmen around the country. Each episode features Reedus and a riding companion as they journey across an unknown terrain and experience the culture surrounding them… with plenty of time for unplanned detours and tire changes. This seasons guests include Austin Amelio, Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, Andrew Lincoln, Marilyn Manson, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Melissa McBride, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Steven Yeun. “Ride with Norman Reedus” is produced by Left/Right (“This American Life,” “The Circus,” “James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction”) with Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver and Anneka Jones serving as Executive Producers along with Reedus.
