TVLine Chats With Scott Gimple; IGN Posts Teaser, Talks to Angela Kang

This week, TVLine chats with Scott Gimple about Season 9, while IGN posts a teaser and talks to Angela Kang. Plus, The Hollywood Reporter quotes AMC’s Josh Sapan saying there’s a 10-year-plus plan for the show’s universe. Read on for more:

• Scott Gimple tells TVLine that Maggie is more eager for retribution when Season 9 opens because “she’s become a mother, so from an emotional standpoint, as far as any sort of reset or even exacerbation of what she was feeling, that baby is a big part of it.”

IGN posts an exclusive Season 9 teaser and speaks about Rick’s final episodes with Angela Kang, who says Andrew Lincoln is “incredible in them, for one thing, and I think our directors that have come in have done some of their finest work, so I’m excited for people to see the journey.”

• According to The Hollywood Reporter, AMC’s Josh Sapan explains the show is a franchise: “The Walking Dead is a universe…and we have a plan to manage over the next decade, plus. That plan is a careful plan to respect the world of the fans of that world.”

• Scott Gimple shares with TVLine that Jon Bernthal’s guest appearance as Shane on The Walking Dead this season involves “some very cool, very heavy stuff.”

TV Insider reports that Season 8 will be available on Netflix on Sept. 23: “Expect some tearful goodbyes in a season that saw a tension-filled return to form for the long-running hit.”

• Highlighting a new promo, Uproxx says, “With the threat of The Whisperers on the horizon, Negan’s brutal methods — and his ability to unite his own people through fear — may actually become necessary to the survival of everyone else.”

ComicBook.com says of The Walking Dead‘s return: “After eight seasons, The Walking Dead is still going pretty strong — even if Season 9 will bring about quite a few changes.”

Cleveland.com cautions not to “expect Maggie and Rick to be the only potential casualties. Here’s a look at who might become zombie food in Season 9.”
