'The Walking Dead' Season 9 Will Take Place In The Future

The Walking Dead's newest showrunner, Angela Kang, appeared during an AMC press event today after taking over from Scott M. Gimple and while she didn't have any direct statements about series stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Lauren Cohan (Maggie), she did reveal one major detail to expect when the zombie drama returns in October.

"We're playing with time in the season, so we get to jump forward in the story."

That comment confirmed that the AMC drama will follow the events of creator Robert Kirkman's comic book series in which the narrative jumps forward two years following the end of the all-out war arc between Rick and Negan.

"We're working on a season that has a really fresh look and feel," she said. "We come in on some pretty fun stuff. I'm really focusing a lot on the core character relationships in the show that have kind of been long-lasting, as well as all of our wonderful series regulars."

The new showrunner also expressed hope that season nine would lean into "great stories" with women on the series. "We're going to see some really great stories with the women in our show, particularly. And I think for people who are really invested in Michonne [Danai Gurira], Maggie or Carol [Melissa McBride], there's such great material for them. For people who are looking for that specifically, they will see some really incredible work from our women," she said.

The Walking Dead returns in October. A formal premiere date and trailer will be announced at San Diego Comic-Con.
