Tv Season Info

Last season brought the culmination of "All Out War," which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan. With Negan's life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him. By making the unilateral decision to spare Negan, Rick upheld the values his late son, Carl, championed in order to build for the future, but created conflict within his group. Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick's steadfast leadership. It is a time of relative peace among the communities as they work together, looking to the past to forge the future, but the world they knew is rapidly changing as man-made structures continue to degrade, and nature takes over, changing the landscape and creating new challenges for our survivors. As time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles, danger, and of course, walkers, but nothing quite prepares them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.

This pilot is an optimistic indicator that 'The Walking Dead' can flourish within the shaky lands of the apocalypse. [Full Review in Spanish]

The series finds its pulse again. [Full Review in Spanish]

As this season started, The Walking Dead looked scarily like a dead man walking.

Apr 4, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

There is still quite a lot of trouble with getting the story to progress forward and an equal amount in trying to develop the characters to the point of actually caring about what happens to them.

Apr 2, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Showrunner Angela Kang had already done the impossible in resuscitating this season to heights of TWD's glory days while navigating the loss of the series' main character.

Mar 24, 2019 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

It isn't a perfect first half, but it takes the unexpected departure of its star and runs, doesn't walk, towards revitilization.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The Walking Dead has turned loss on many levels into a reset and become more insightful than it has been in a long time. That might not be what you expect for Survivors of the end times, but it is something well worth watching.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Rick's final episode was full of great acting by Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I will never look at Negan the same again. The writers are so much better this season.

Nov 7, 2018 | Rating: 92 | Full Review…

"The Walking Dead" season 9 gets off to a good start, but the real test will be whether or not AMC can keep the show chugging after its main star leaves the series.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The new season gives off a distinctly Western vibe, with horse-drawn museum artifacts helping our heroes rebuild a civilization, and an incident of rough frontier justice.

Oct 8, 2018 | Full Review…

As shakily as some of these new conflicts and plotlines have been established, I am, for the first time in several seasons, curious to see how things turn out on The Walking Dead.

Oct 7, 2018 | Full Review…

The chance to watch Maggie contend with the challenges of statecraft in a post-apocalyptic world slowly coming back to life may be too interesting to turn away from.

    In this season, The Walking Dead came back from the dead and showed that it's still one of the best shows in TV.

    Where have all the real men gone.
  • Sep 16, 2019
    The first ever season i stopped watching. The characters living in separate locations and the loss of the leader kills the series. Same old, same old.
  • Sep 15, 2019
    TWD season 9 is probably one of the series's best season thanks to its new showrunner Angela Kang.
