Tv Season Info

Last season brought the culmination of "All Out War," which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. With Negan's life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him. By making the unilateral decision to spare Negan, Rick upheld the values his late son, Carl, championed in order to build for the future, but created conflict within his group. Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick's steadfast leadership. It is a time of relative peace among the communities as they work together, looking to the past to forge the future, but the world they knew is rapidly changing as man-made structures continue to degrade, and nature takes over, changing the landscape and creating new challenges for our survivors. As time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles, danger, and of course, walkers, but nothing quite prepares them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.

Kang is loading the show with quality character, relationships, and mystery (including that helicopter everyone wants to know about) right off the bat.

This pilot is an optimistic indicator that 'The Walking Dead' can flourish within the shaky lands of the apocalypse. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 9, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The series finds its pulse again. [Full Review in Spanish]

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

As this season started, The Walking Dead looked scarily like a dead man walking.

Apr 4, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

There is still quite a lot of trouble with getting the story to progress forward and an equal amount in trying to develop the characters to the point of actually caring about what happens to them.

Apr 2, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Showrunner Angela Kang had already done the impossible in resuscitating this season to heights of TWD's glory days while navigating the loss of the series' main character.

Mar 24, 2019 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

It isn't a perfect first half, but it takes the unexpected departure of its star and runs, doesn't walk, towards revitilization.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The Walking Dead has turned loss on many levels into a reset and become more insightful than it has been in a long time. That might not be what you expect for Survivors of the end times, but it is something well worth watching.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 7, 2018 | Rating: 92 | Full Review…

"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.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

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.

Oct 8, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

    TWD remains a masterpiece, as always !!! Best Serie ever !!! TWD is still good, although this season is not as good as for example the 5/6 season but it remains one of my favorite seasons.

    What's so new and refreshing? It's just "folks meet more zombies and the next group of human adversaries." I haven't streamed the entire season and I sincerely hope there's a major turn of events before it ends.

    A lot of people see that the review scores suddenly jump up after season 8 and reasonably believe the quality of the show has improved. This is statistical fool's gold unfortunately. What really happened is that after the disastrous season 8, most people jumped ship, leaving behind only the people who still believe this is a quality show. Let's just call them viewers of low taste. As a result, they are the only remaining people watching and rating the show, and they think it's just hunky dory, so it artificially inflates the score. I watched this season solely because I wanted to see the conclusion of Rick's saga and it was not worth it. Characters continue to act like they are mentally deficient. Zombies continue to do stealth surprise sneak attacks that would be deadly to no one in real life. The actress who played Maggie obviously left because of how dumb the scripts were getting, leaving this weird mysterious disappearance that the other characters try to explain away with lame dialog. Side characters that no one ever really liked are shuffled into the position of main players. It's just falling apart and they should do the right thing and wrap up this train wreck before it taints the whole series.

    Angela Kang fez um excelente trabalho. Vemos a história andar pra frente de maneira não tão acelerada porém não cansativa. Vemos excelentes atuações e ótimos diálogos

  • Jun 08, 2020
    with some remarkable moments and a satisfactory progression in the plot, the show is back

    The serie lost sense! So sad, chapter as o ilogical and longs for a tiny situation. Get back Rick Grimmes

    Dear Angela Kang. Thank You. 'I Found Them' Yes you did. After two of the worst seasons I've seen on Television The walking dead has done something that I haven't seen in years. MAKE A GOOD SEASON! Wow! Ricks departure episode in my opinion was the best Walking dead episode, the first five episodes were amazing and the Whisperers are the best thing to happen to this show in a long ass time. Despite major cast members leaving, Kang still manages to make a season worth watching. If you are an old fan looking to get invested back into the show, this season is your ticket.

    Luego de una lenta temporada 8, la temporada 9 viene con todo, volviendo a ese "gore" que tanto gustaba en las temporadas anteriores y siendo mas rápida que la 8. Además de que lograron meter a los susurradores de una forma que te deja pirando basicamente

    It's a completely new mood! After the hopeless atmosphere Neegan and the Saviours helped building, it's cool to feel optimistic again. Surprise after surprise and the new characters make this season definitely one of the best of TWD
