Rick’s Got A Crazy New Weapon In These Walking Dead Season 9 Set Pics


Season 9 of AMC’s The Walking Dead is beginning to take shape. And fast.

Ever since production kicked off late last month, both Andrew Lincoln and Black Panther‘s Danai Gurira have been spotted on the streets of Atlanta (where it’s shooting) multiple times over, with numerous set pics hitting the web over the past couple of weeks. But today’s batch of photos are perhaps the most interesting ones we’ve had yet, as they show Lincoln’s fearless survivor, Rick Grimes, with a crazy new weapon. One which actually kind of resembles Negan’s Lucille.

As you’ll see in the gallery down below, he’s got some sort of club with him, which has pointed spikes on its end. How he got his hands on it or what exactly it’ll be used for remains to be seen, of course, but you can bet that this new weapon will definitely come in handy if the Whisperers show up – which, at this stage, we imagine they will.

Though not pictured here, also among the cast list for the show’s next run are Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Ross Marquand, Seth Gilliam, Alanna Masterson, Tom Payne, Sydney Park, Khary Payton, Pollyanna McIntosh and Lauren Cohen, who was reportedly hesitant about returning for season 9 due to a dispute over pay. Those issues have since been settled, though – thank the heavens – which means that the fan favorite Maggie Rhee will be back, back, back later this year.

AMC’s ninth season of The Walking Dead is expected to air sometime in October. That’s still a long ways away, but if it’s more undead action you’re after, Fear The Walking Dead season 4 returns this Sunday with “Laura” – the promo for which you can catch down below.
