As a viewer who had fallen off "The Walking Dead" wagon seasons ago, I had heard (and written) all sorts of great things about the long-running series' 9th season and decided to binge my way through prior seasons, continuing through the ninth. I must say, Angela Kang as the new showrunner has brought new life to the series thanks to a substantial time jump, new faces, new villians, and even new weather in the form of a winter storm! Season 9 is easily one of the best seasons to date.
So what's next for Season 10? For starters, Kang wants to continue taking the series down new paths.
“Things are going to pick up with a little bit more of a time passage, not a giant one like we’ve had, but winter will be over and people will be going to be in a different emotional space,” Kang teased in a recent chat with Entertainment Weekly. “I’m working on the premiere, and we’re gonna, I don’t know… I’m crazy. I was like, ‘Let’s just do snow’ which is actually impossible to do. So so there’s other stuff in [the season 10 premiere] where I’m like, I must be psychotic, because let’s just do more stuff we’ve never done on this show that feels impossible. That’s part of the fun of the show.”
She continued, “Obviously, there are some problems to be worked out with the Whisperers, these crazy neighbors that come in and out and cause chaos in their world. That’s something to play out, and obviously there will be other storylines that are kind of intersecting with all of this. It’s always fun to have more than one thing going on at once. We’ll find out how this radio voice, what they have to do with our people and their world. We’re having fun working on the pieces of this season, so hopefully it will go well. I’m knocking on a lot of wood.”
“The Walking Dead” Season 10 will premiere this coming October.
