HipZOMJoint Role Call #37 Looking Ahead To Walking Dead Season 9

The Walking Dead series has hit a bit of a lull over the past two seasons. If the All Out War storyline didn’t leave a poor taste in fans mouths the storyline ran off the rest of their fan base.

Maybe The Walking Dead should take a cue from Fear The Walking Dead’s playbook and do a soft reboot with new characters. If the series stays true to the book, season 9 will take a substantial time jump. This was alluded to in season 8 with visions of Old Man Rick. But with time jump comes new threats and new allies. This is HipZOMJoint’s Role Call for some major new characters in Season 9.


Tatiana Maslany as Magna

The season 9 storyline should pick up with survivor, Magna, leading her group across the apocalyptic wasteland. Maslany from BBC’s popular Orphan Black series would be perfect in the role!

Maggie Q as Alpha

The big bad of season 9 is the Walker skin wearing villains known as the Whisperers. Their leader, The Alpha, is dangerous and devious. Maggie Q the Divergent series would be perfect for the role.

Rory McCann as Beta

Alpha’s number two is the large and imposing Beta. Constantly wearing his walker face mask, Beta is fierce and only adheres to Alpha. Rory McCann who plays the Hound on HBO’s Game Of Thrones would be perfect for the role.

Willow Shields as Judith Grimes

Since season 9 is said to take a time jump, Judith will have to grow up. If there is anyone who knows how to survive in a dystopian future it’s actress Willow Shields who played Katniss Everdeen’s younger sister in The Hunger Games.
