“THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE NINTH SEASON”
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.
