The Walking Dead is headed into its 10th season tonight, and in traditional New York Comic-Con fashion, its cast and crew hyped the upcoming installment of the AMC drama at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in NYC on Saturday. Moderator Chris Hardwick took the stage to show the first five minutes of the Season 10 premiere alongside Cailey Fleming, Danai Gurira, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Josh McDermitt, Norman Reedus, chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, Seth Gilliam, showrunner Angela Kang, executive producer Robert Kirkman, and producer David Alpert.

Season 9 of AMC’s The Walking Dead will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital later this month.
The complete ninth season of the series, which saw Angela Kang as the showrunner, will be released on August 20, 2019 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment, and is available for pre-order now on Blu-ray/Digital Combo Pack, DVD, and Digital.
This home release, which includes all 16 episodes, will include several making-of featurettes, deleted scenes and bonus scenes, and a look at the memorable deaths of the season.
All reports of The Walking Dead‘s demise have been greatly overstated. By 9:15am on Saturday (over an hour before doors opened to the general public), the parking lot of the New Jersey Convention and Expo Center was jam packed and lines were forming outside for this year’s Walker Stalker Con. When the doors opened at 10:30am, it was as if the zombies had broken through the gates! Fans of the AMC television series, which is currently in its ninth season, packed the convention hall to meet their favorite stars, get autographs, take photos, and sit for Q&A panels.
The Walking Dead Panel closed out New York Comic-Con Saturday night at the Hulu Theater at MSG, and it was bittersweet, as it was Andrew Lincoln‘s last one as Rick Grimes, as this is his last season as the popular character. Chris Hardwick (The Talking Dead) moderated, and after a bunch of amazing trailers and The Walking Dead commercials, he introduced the dazzling cast and crew: new showrunner Angela Kang, Scott Gimple, co-creator Robert Kirkman, producer Dave Alpert, executive producer Gale Ann Hurd, producer and director Greg Nicotero, stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Melissa McBride (Carol), Danai Gurira (Michonne), and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan).

On AMC’s The Walking Dead, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is my favorite character. I know, I know… he killed Glenn and Abraham (also 2 of my faves), but it is not his murder streak that makes me love him. It’s his goddamn witty sayings that accompany his actions. It’s his way of finding the humor in everything, even when surrounded by a horde of hungry zombies, or handing out death like a deck of cards. I just about ate up Skybound’s little book about TWD‘s big man.
