The new has not yet been formalized by AMC but it should not delay : The Walking Dead returns for season 10.
A month before the return of season 9 of The Walking Dead on AMC, SpoilerTV has announced that the series would indeed be renewed for a season 10. The official announcement of the renewal of the season 9 having been made on January 13, 2018, one of the season 10 is soon expected to be released in turn. And although nothing is official for now, the return of The Walking Dead for a new season was no doubt, the showrunneuse Angela Kang have already mentioned in speaking of the possible return of Lauren Cohan, aka Maggie Rhee, in the series.
The rest of the season 9 of The Walking Dead will focus on the impact of the arrival of Whisperers on Michonne, Daryl, Carol, and all the others. And since the war against this violent group lasts for a certain time in comics, there is little chance for it to be completed by the end of the season 9. The advertisement for a tenth season, so this would not be a surprise. Daryl and Carol should be back – or in any case in the universe of The Walking Dead – Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride, who recently signed a 3 year contract with the franchise, while a contract with Danai Gurira is still under negotiation.
