The Walking Dead Season 9 Trailer SDCC

The trailer for The Walking Dead season 9 from San Diego Comic-Con is super-sized! It gives us over 5 minutes of footage revealing the big time jump and the new world ahead.

The Walking Dead Season 9 -- Rick's Last Stand

It looks like season 9 is going to jump right into the future (compared to where season 8 ended) to a world where cars have been replaced by horses and hand-to-hand weapons are more common than guns.

We catch up with the remaining survivors we've come to know over the last 8 years scattered across a variety of settlements. The settlements themselves seemed to have settled into full-on villages.

Of course, we all know that both Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan are leaving the series midway through this season, so there's an undercurrent of suspense as tensions build. 

By the end, we're introduced to a batch of new characters, including Dan Fogler, who fans might recognize from Fantastic Beasts. I know you were trying to figure out where you've seen him before.

The Walking Dead season 9 premieres October 7th. No matter what happens, we know this will be Rick's last stand, so, even if you've sworn off the show before, you might want to give it one last look for closure's sake.
