Watching The Walking Dead Online, Made Easy
The ninth season of the highly acclaimed The Walking Dead is returning on October 8 and Australian fans will be able to watch the show express from the US! In the thrilling finale of season 8 featuring the “All Out War,” Negan was finally defeated — but spared from death — by Rick, and was kept as a prisoner instead. But just when the group thought they can finally have some sense of peace, a new terror rises in the form of The Whisperers, who are led by their cold and cruel leader, Alpha. And with actor Andrew Lincoln (Rick), who has played the show’s lead since season 1, set to leave in season 9, fans can very well expect a an even more exciting and heart-wrenching ride ahead. Don’t miss new episodes starting October 8, express from the US, only on FOX SHOWCASE.
