“THE WALK­ING DEAD: THE COM­PLETE NINTH SEA­SON”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Movies This Week -

Change cer­tainly is a key­note of this year of the hugely pop­u­lar AMC hor­ror-drama se­ries, with the big­gest one in­volv­ing An­drew Lin­coln’s char­ac­ter Rick Grimes – whose even­tual ab­sence dur­ing the course of the sea­son goes along gen­er­ates strife among oth­ers, un­til they re­al­ize that join­ing forces is the only way to de­feat a com­mon threat. Lauren Co­han also has lim­ited in­volve­ment here, since she would leave the show to make ABC’s now-can­celed “Whiskey Cav­a­lier”; among those who also re­turn are Jef­frey Dean Mor­gan (as Ne­gan, of course), Nor­man Ree­dus, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Tom Payne and Josh McDer­mitt. Sa­man­tha Mor­ton be­comes an in­creas­ingly big­ger pres­ence as the episodes progress.
