Whatever your opinions on this season of The Walking Dead, the AMC zombie drama is still a juggernaut hit for the cable network, so this weekend's announcement that the show had been renewed for a ninth season was hardly a surprise. More interesting is the fact that Scott Gimple will be stepping down as showrunner, with writer and co-executive producer Angela Kang taking the helm.
Negan and the Saviors escape the Sanctuary and seek revenge on Alexandria, the Kingdom, and the Hilltop. Carl works to save the Alexandriates, Maggie makes a cold-blooded decision, and the show takes a very ambitious (and unexpected) turn.
