AMC’s “The Walking Dead” will be return with all new episodes in February. The network gave the second-half of the season a firm premiere date this week, the season’s return will also coincide with the return of Norman Reedus’ show. Starting with “The Walking Dead,” the premiere is set for Sunday, February 10th, the date was confirmed by Chris Hardwick on last night’s “Talking Dead.” Hardwick also revealed that the season three premiere of “Ride with Norman Reedus” will air at midnight that same evening.
According to the AMC, the second half of “The Walking Dead” season nine will follow our survivors, both old and new, as they continue to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves. The network teased the new season adding, “They will soon realize the world just beyond does not operate as they thought. The group’s rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it’s unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out.”
