Check out these new images from season 9 of The Walking Dead

Season 9 of The Walking Dead will take a big time jump into the future. As Rick and co. continue to build a new society, the zombie threat is still very real. Cars are a thing of the past and now horseback is the new mode of transportation. Check out these new images of season 9 below:

Angela Kang will take over as showrunner in season 9. She is only tasked with sending off series star Andrew Lincoln who plays Rick Grimes and Lauren Cohan who plays Maggie Rhee. Both stars will be leaving the series this season. But no pressure.

The series is coming back earlier in October than usual: Sunday, Oct. 7 at 9/8c. Usually it premieres later in the month.
