The zombie drama will continue in 2019-2020.
February 4, 2019
AMC announced today that The Walking Dead has been renewed for a tenth season. The good news comes as the hit series is gearing up for its return from its winter break this Sunday.
The post-apocalyptic zombie drama continues to rank as one of television's top scripted series, though some plot elements in recent seasons have resulted in a considerable drop in its audience numbers compared to the highs it reached a few years ago. Viewership in the current season is again hitting series lows, though it has leveled off and is now fairly consistent week-to-week.
Season 9 is the first with new showrunner Angela Kang, who took over for Scott M. Gimple and helped usher in a new era for the veteran series, which has recently lost some of its major characters. The back half of the current season promises to feature more of The Whisperers, who were introduced in late 2018.
Look for Season 10 of The Walking Dead this October.

I have watched every single episode of this show all through season 8. After they killed off Carl, and then Rick left the show, there was just no reason left to continue watching this show.

It has lost it's gritty aspect and needs to go back to basics if it is to survive. Less and less zombies per episode. It has gone off rails and needs to return to the way it was or this will end. After ricks departure it will be interesting to see who fits into his shoes.

I also ask why?? At this point it's kind of sad it's still on, the actors are all doing other projects and the episodes are so choppy. Their still not showing all the characters in each episode. They make you wait several episodes to get back to a mediocre storyline. I find trying to re-watch the last few seasons of the show on netflix shows how bad the directing is. It's like they forgot people are watching this for entertainment!

IT is still one of cables best rated series. I hope they continue it for decades, why not? New cast members will be around so Good news by me.

Why? ... Do they even kill Zombies anymore? This has turned into a CW style teen angst drama.

For all of the haters that take enough time to express their opinion of a show they supposedly don't watch, why bother?
Season 9 is much more like the original few seasons, more gritty and involving. It is almost like a new show and the main characters that are gone...don't even notice or care.
Good job Angela, keep it up!

It gave me a lot of great years, stuck with it during the weaker stretches (last two seasons). It picked up strong again this season, I like the idea of the spin offs. I'm sticking with it until I TURN.
