The Walking Dead Fan Mailbag: Week of July 12th

We are BACK to answer your most burning questions about The Walking Dead Season 9. And since we took last week off for the holiday we packed this article with more questions than ever! Here’s our official fan mailbag for the week of July 12th, 2018.


The Trailing Dead

 

ewseason9

Glad you asked! The Walking Dead’s new showrunner Angela Kang addressed this very issue with Entertainment Weekly. “There’s a fun Western vibe that has emerged,” Kang said. “We are going into a period where a lot of the things that we’ve seen in previous seasons have broken down, so they’ve got these horses and carriages that are being drawn around instead of cars. Things are lit with oil lamps. People are using different kinds of weaponry. There’s a real grittiness to it that I think will be fun and fresh for the viewers.”


The Helicopter’s Role

Yes, after getting teased for over a season fans will finally get some answers on the helicopter. It’s actually one of the many thrilling storylines told this season.


Michonne Finding Happiness?

Yes, Michonne will absolutely find happiness this season. Of course, she’ll also find a lot of other emotions. Showrunner Angela Kang recently told The Hollywood Reporter, “Michonne definitely has a meaty arc this season, and it’s one that unfolds in a way that I hope will be interesting to our viewers. Danai and I have been having a great time discussing her character this season. We’re trying to see what other shades we can bring into this character and this role because she has depth as an actor and is such a smart actor. We’re loving writing for Michonne and there’s going to be some cool stuff for fans to see that will hopefully be surprising.”


Prison Negan

Negan’s not going to have a lot to do in that cell Rick’s keeping him at in Alexandria. But that’s not to say he won’t have some interesting visits while locked up…


Henry and Carol

Actually, yes. Henry and Carol form a parent/child sort of bond now that Carol’s re-located to the Kingdom.


Carl Memories?

Carl may be gone but he’s not forgotten. Expect his name to come up a few times this season.


Most Popular Community

This one’s tough because there’s so much moving around in Season 9. So far, we’ll say that you’ll see the Hilltop more, but not by much.


New Do?

Actually, yes.


Michonne The Leader?

Absolutely.


Rick Update

Guys, we can’t confirm or deny any news involving the cast until AMC confirms or denies. We recommend keeping your eyes peeled for next week’s Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic Con. That’s usually when they debut their trailer and new set photos, so it’s possible you’ll get your answer then. Maybe.


Adapting Anne

The artist formerly known as Jadis will understandably have a tough time integrating into the communities she attacked, back-stabbed, and betrayed. But she will find some friends among their ranks.


Anne and Gabe?

We’re guessing this is in reference to the leaked set photos where Father Gabriel and Anne (formerly Jadis) are seen riding in a wagon together. All we’ll say is that the wagon isn’t the only place we’ll see these two together this season.


Jesus’ Loyalty Loyalty Loyalty

 

jesus806

As we saw at the end of Season 8, Jesus sided with Maggie that Negan should NOT have been kept alive by Rick. It’s an issue that carries over into Season 9 in more ways than one. To answer your question, sort of? It’s something Jesus more or less takes up with Maggie instead of Rick.


Caryl Update??

Don’t hold your breath, but never say never.


Rick and Judith?

Yes, and it’s really cute. You won’t be disappointed.


About That Cryptic Tweet

Not specifically, but we’ve seen various rumors bouncing around The Walking Dead fandom that we can’t address. With all this wild speculation we thought we’d say something so people didn’t fly off the handles with everything they read. Plus, it allows fans to discuss the show and give their OWN opinions about what they want to see and don’t want to see this Fall.


More Rosita?

Yes, Rosita will definitely have some more screen time this season.


Rebuilding

Good question! It’s possible that Michonne and/or Rick use Deanna’s plans, but we don’t hear any mention of it. Georgie’s plan for the future, which she traded to Maggie, will absolutely be vital to the re-building and growth of the allied communities.


Education System

 

TWD_601_GP_0514_0590

Going off the last question, yes. Bigger and more efficient communities = bigger and more efficient ways of life, which includes an education system. Sure, it may not be like your classic idea of school, but these kids will have to learn somehow.


Daryl’s Layers

We don’t agree that Daryl has been stagnant for the past 4+ seasons, but we can confirm the show will peel away more of his layers in Season 9.


New Characters?

There will be some fresh new faces that weren’t in the comics and you can get excited for a Season 9 Comic Con trailer next Friday, July 20th in the early afternoon.


Siddiq’s Role

Siddiq will improve upon his medicine skills as he becomes the primary doctor of the allied communities in Season 9.


Rick H. Macey

We can’t really comment on leaked photos, but there MAY be some Rick mace action in Season 9. As for weapon of choice? Eh.


Escaping Walkers

Walkers will be featured in more gruesome ways than ever this season – which means a lot more people running away from them!


Jerry In Love?

That is very possible – I mean, who couldn’t love Jerry??


The Most Important Question of Them All

Yup!


What wraps up our fan mailbag! We’ll be in San Diego next week so look out for PLENTY of exciting Walking Dead updates then.
