The Walking Dead Trailer: Season 9

With the defeat of Negan, you’d think things would finally be moving smoothly for Rick and the group but things have actually gotten a whole lot harder. The Season 9 trailer perfectly displayed the world Rick was trying to build now that Negan was kicked off his throne.

As Rick talks to Negan, who remains hidden throughout the trailer, we catch glimpses of the communities coming together. However, not everyone is on board.

The unfortunate reality is that not everyone is ready to welcome The Saviors after what they put them through. But the trailer does take its time to show the tough times and some of the softer ones as well including Rick, Michonne, and Judith spending time together away from the stressors of their home.

The trailer concludes with new faces hoping to join the community and Eugene and Rosita narrowly escaping a whole herd of walkers where you can clearly hear some of them speaking. We know now that this was a sneak peek of the next villains to grace the show: The Whisperers.

The Walking Dead Trailer: Season 11

From the opening of the trailer alone, we know that the final season of the series will be far from a bright one. Not when walkers remain to be a continuous problem, the fact that characters like Maggie cannot accept Negan as the changed man he became and of course a new villain they will need to face.

The trailer has a very distinctive aura around it from shots that are filmed in practically black and white to warmer colored tones. Ironically these fit the situations the characters are in ner perfectly.

If we think our heroes at Alexandria are having it tough, Eugene and his company are not having much more luck as The Commonwealth appears like a Woodbury/Terminus combination of an overly friendly appearance to draw you in but might actually be something darker and more sinister. But what does all this mean?

Since the final season has not aired we do not know the impact of the scenes used in the trailer, nor when they will occur on the show. We can’t definitively say that The Commonwealth is a good or bad place nor do we know who becomes walker chow.

What we can tell is that The Reapers are taking the villain status to a whole new level of brutality and violence we may not have seen yet. No one appears to be truly safe and unfortunately, a happy ending for the series may not be in the cards for our heroes.

The Walking Dead Trailer Honorable Mention: Season 5

The Walking Dead had dealt with walkers and villains but nothing quite to the extent of cannibalism. While now we’re used to seeing more brutal villains, that wasn’t quite the case just yet before Season 5.

The Governor had his moments but he wasn’t purposely running a community of crazed people determined on eating others. The Season 5 trailer was able to transport viewers from a horror series to a near horror movie as the camera angle put us in Rick’s shoes.

We witness a dead body being hacked up before several characters are led to a pig trough about to be slaughtered. The escape from Terminus is shown through quick shots and intense close calls.

The escape is pure insanity! The prerogative to bring Eugene to Washington D.C. becomes all the more imperative and the reality that not everyone is out to save others becomes all the more clear.

The trailer ends with Beth trying to escape a hospital run by less than friendly police officers. She and Daryl got separated and in the process, she is captured and must find the strength to survive and find her family.
