The Walking Dead season 9 reveals filming has begun

The Walking Dead is officially back in production for season nine.

While we’ve not been given any plot details yet (apart from what we can gather from the season eight finale), the official Twitter page has marked the start of filming with a clapperboard photo.

We can’t really gather any particular information from this other than the fact that show regular Greg Nicotero is directing the season nine premiere.

Last month, Lauren Cohan finally confirmed that Maggie will be back in The Walking Dead season nine and we also found out how much we’ll see her.

It has been reported that she will definitely appear in six of the first eight episodes, but her role in the second half is up in the air, with it all depending on her new ABC TV pilot Whiskey Cavalier.

If that show gets a series order, then she has been cleared to film The Walking Dead during her hiatus from that show, although a deal would need to be negotiated. If it doesn’t get a series, then AMC can negotiate a full-time deal for Cohan.

While the majority of the cast are back for season nine, there has been a change behind the scenes as Angela Kang starts as showrunner, with Scott Gimple promoted to Chief Content Officer of the entire Walking Dead universe.

Gimple has still been teasing that we should expect The Walking Dead to be “very much a new show” in season nine.

The Walking Dead airs on AMC in the US and on FOX and NOW TV in the UK.
