Watch the Walking Dead Season 9 Online!
The Walking Dead Season 9 Is Returning… to Australia!
Season 9 of The Walking Dead will be just as explosive as fans expect. 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 they thought they can finally have some sense of peace, a new terror rises in the form of The Whisperers, 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.
Where can I get The Walking Dead Season 9?
The only place to watch The Walking Dead live and legally is Foxtel. In Australia, you won’t find The Walking Dead Free to air or on any other streaming services. Alternatively, you can wait until the Season 9 DVD comes out or until new episodes become available on digital retailers. But if you want to avoid spoilers and watch at the same time as the US, Foxtel is your best bet.
You can also watch on Foxtel Now if you don’t have a traditional Foxtel subscription, which is basically Foxtel streamed via the internet. Or, you can use the Foxtel app and watch on your mobile device.
