Season nine of “The Walking Dead” arrives on Blu-ray (plus digital), DVD and digital Aug. 20 from Lionsgate.
New showrunner Angela Kang takes the helm as Rick Grimes prepares to make his exit from the TV series. The Walking Dead: Season 9 stars award winner Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually, Heartbreaker), Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, Triple 9), Lauren Cohan (All Eyez on Me, TV’s “Whiskey Cavalier,” Mile 22), Danai Gurira (Black Panther, All Eyez on Me), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, TV’s “The Good Wife” and “Grey’s Anatomy”), and Academy Award nominee Samantha Morton (2003, Best Actress, In America).
Last season brought the culmination of all-out war, which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their leader, Negan. With Negan’s life in his hands, Rick had a character-defining choice in front of him, and he spared Negan to uphold the values his late son, Carl, championed — values that created conflict within his group. Now, with our survivors rebuilding civilization under Rick’s leadership a year and a half after the end of the war, it’s a time of relative peace among the communities. However, the world they knew is rapidly changing, nature is literally taking over, and, as time passes, the communities confront unexpected obstacles and danger. But nothing can prepare them for the formidable force they’re about to encounter, threatening the very idea of civilization our survivors have worked so hard to build.
The home entertainment release of The Walking Dead: Season 9 includes multiple making-of featurettes, including a look at the memorable deaths of the season, deleted scenes, and a bonus scene.
