The Walking Dead: Season 9 Reviews

November 7, 2018
Rick's final episode was full of great acting by Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I will never look at Negan the same again. The writers are so much better this season.

"The Walking Dead" season 9 gets off to a good start, but the real test will be whether or not AMC can keep the show chugging after its main star leaves the series.

A vastly reinvented, completely refreshed Walking Dead has circled back to that essential idea. It's been a dark road to get here, but at least... The Walking Dead feels more alive than ever before.

As shakily as some of these new conflicts and plotlines have been established, I am, for the first time in several seasons, curious to see how things turn out on The Walking Dead.

It's a nice change of pace, showing characters that actually communicate with one another - and especially after seasons that so often had people make hasty and dumb decisions without even talking to their friends and allies.

For the first time, the show seems interested in thinking about what its whole picture will be once it ends. That commitment to thinking about both its future and its past has made The Walking Dead's present the best that it's been in ages.

The new season gives off a distinctly Western vibe, with horse-drawn museum artifacts helping our heroes rebuild a civilization, and an incident of rough frontier justice.

[It] feels like the series is back on track, and it's true that change in any creative endeavor can help energize a long-running franchise, at least temporarily.

In season nine, The Walking Dead concerns itself with the nitty-gritty of ensuring an egalitarian system of government.

What's looming... ominously is the tension between the various surviving communities.

The chance to watch Maggie contend with the challenges of statecraft in a post-apocalyptic world slowly coming back to life may be too interesting to turn away from.
