Press: San Diego Comic Con 2018 – Don’t Expect Maggie and Rick to Fight to the Death

TV GUIDE – When The Walking Dead concluded Season 8, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) made the controversial decision to let Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) live instead of killing him for all the pain and suffering and death he bestowed on Rick’s group. (To be fair, Rick slit Negan’s throat, but Negan survived.)

 

Many fans weren’t happy about the decision, and they shared the feeling of Maggie (Lauren Cohan), who wanted Negan to pay for turning her husband Glenn’s (Steven Yeun) head into brain spaghetti with a baseball bat. In the final moments of the Season 8 finale, Maggie, Jesus (Tom Payne) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) gathered at the Hilltop to seemingly conspire against Rick for keeping Negan alive.

 

It set up a possible civil war inside the group with Rick leading one faction and Maggie leading the other, and had us all theorizing that the divide might have something to do with Lincoln and Cohan leaving the show next season. They totally kill each other, right? Wrong.

 

At The Walking Dead press conference held in San Diego Comic-Con after the fan panel, Season 8 showrunner Scott Gimple addressed the situation and essentially defused things a little bit.

 

“We’ve got to remember where we left Maggie in the last season,” Gimple said. “They made a deal in the finale that Negan was done. They were going to kill him. So when Rick spared his life and Maggie broke down, she broke down because of all the sheer emotion of everything that he had done to Glen and everybody around them. All the pain that he had inflicted on everyone. So Maggie felt betrayed.”

 

It appears that Gimple tried to explain that Maggie was angry in the moment, but she wasn’t going to immediately act with some sort of coup. Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne, expanded on the idea and essentially shut out the idea of a possible war between the two, but didn’t rule out lots of complications.

 

“There’s so much tension as a result of that,” Gurira said. “It’s not all-out grown men fighting each other in a pit with two sticks or whatever, it’s more fraught because it’s people who love each other and it’s people who want to be on the same page, but really, really aren’t. It’s family. It’s a family feud, which is actually much in some ways scarier, and it feels much more volatile.”

 

So for all of you out there getting your #TeamRick and #TeamMaggie shirts ready, better put a pin in it for a bit.

 

The Walking Dead returns for Season 9 Sunday, Oct. 7 on AMC.

Press/Video: ‘Walking Dead’ Unveils Season 9 Trailer, Premiere Date at Comic-Con

 

VARIETY – The long-running AMC zombie series showed off the first official trailer for its upcoming ninth season on Friday.

 

The trailer debuted at “The Walking Dead’s” Comic-Con panel following the “Fear the Walking Dead” presentation, which featured its own trailer for the upcoming season. AMC also announced the new season’s premiere date: Oct. 7 at 9 p.m.

 

Season 9 picks up after the conclusion of the all-out war the survivors waged against Negan and his Saviors, focusing on Andrew Lincoln’s character, Rick Grimes, picking up the pieces and putting together the utopian society for a post-apocalyptic world. The footage featured Grimes and the rest of the survivors assembling infrastructure in their new society, as well as conversations with an imprisoned Negan. The trailer also showed tensions running high as supposedly reformed saviors clash with other survivors in disputes about how their new civilization should function and treat one another.

 

The walkers still remain an ever-present threat, as the trailer also contained cuts of Grimes and company fighting off the undead onslaught.

 

Lincoln also confirmed at the panel that he will leave the show this next season after leading it since its start in 2010.

 

The series also stars Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Amelio, Tom Payne, Xander Berkeley, Khary Payton, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

 

 

Press: ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 9 First Footage Arrives

 

COMICBOOK – AMC has released a sneak peek at The Walking Dead season 9 ahead of its full trailer premiere Friday at San Diego Comic-Con.

 

The 25-second sneak peek highlights future leading man Daryl and Hilltop leader Maggie and teases an all new beginning for the survivors.

 

Daryl and a blood-soaked Maggie trek through the woods.

 

“You think you got all this on lock?” says an unseen Negan as Rick overlooks the united communities sat around a peaceful campfire.

 

“We need to start talking about making some rules,” Michonne tells Maggie. Faces say it all: neither are happy with each other. The controversy of Rick’s decision to spare Negan lingers in the air between them.

 

“An agreement between all the communities,” Michonne tells the Hilltop leader. “Like, ‘This is how we treat each other… and this is what happens when we don’t.’”

 

Rick heads through a built-up camp. Rosita does some gun-keeping with Beatrice of Oceanside. A stick-thin tree stump serves as a makeshift direction post. HQ and Sanctuary to the left. Oceanside, Alexandria, and Toledo, Ohio, to the right.

 

Rick nods to former Saviors Laura and Arat. Kingdom loyalists Jerry and Nabila share a kiss. Daryl socks a big guy, Jed — one of the new season 9 characters played by series newcomer Zach McGowan.

 

AMC will debut the trailer in full at The Walking Dead’s annual San Diego Comic-Con presentation Friday afternoon.

Press: ‘The Walking Dead’: Lauren Cohan Only Returning For Half of Season 9

COMICBOOK.COM – The Walking Dead’s Maggie actress Lauren Cohan is only booked to return for less than half of the show’s first season.

 

Cohan joined the AMC show in its second season and is one of very few stars of The Walking Dead to have endured such a long tenure heading into Season Nine and still be an active part of the series. However, Deadline is reporting that Cohan’s new contract for Season Nine only brings her back for six episodes, meaning she will likely pack her bags and head out of production by the Mid-Season Nine finale at the latest.

 

Cohan recently signed on for the new ABC series Whiskey Cavalier which has been picked up for a series. She recently opened up about returning to the series, at least in short, ahead of the six-episode contract being revealed.

 

“I’m going back,” Cohan told EW. “There’s a lot more Maggie story to tell.” As for whether or not Maggie will indeed be pitted against Rick and Michonne as was teased in the Season Eight finale only weeks ago, Cohan can’t comment. In fact, she can’t such much else other than she will be there.

 

“You know we’re not allowed to tell you anything, but it’s good,” she said.

 

During The Walking Dead’s production off-season, Cohan shot Mile 22 with co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Ronda Rousey. Shortly after word of the actress’ contract with AMC having expired after the show’s eighth season, she signed on for a new ABC pilot by the name of Whiskey Cavalier. The status of Whiskey Cavalier is unknown at this point.

 

Should the AMC show choose to pit Maggie against her longtime ally Rick Grimes, Andrew Lincoln is prepared for a dramatic season.

 

“She’s terrifying. When she comes full-Cohan, that emotional force is like a freakin’ hurricane,” Lincoln told ComicBook.com. “It’s crazy. That’s a big turn. It makes for a very interesting set up for this year, certainly. I’m excited. She’s a wonderful actress, LC. She’s so true. When she hits it, there’s nobody like her. I think it’s wonderful that she’s got this power as a performer and also the stage that Maggie now has in the show and in the community, what she represents, I think it makes for a formidable force.”

 

The Walking Dead will return for its ninth season in the fall.
