Vedendo le "grandi idee" di questa stagione 9, mi sono spaventato dal grassetto
Executive producer David Alpert said in 2014 that the original comics have given them enough ideas
for Rick Grimes and company over the next seven years
. "I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea
of what season 10 is gonna be", Alpert said. "We know where seasons 11 and 12 [will be]... we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we're lucky enough to get there." In September 2018, AMC CEO Josh Sapan stated that they plan on continuing The Walking Dead franchise for another 10 years
, including new films and television series based on the original comic book series.
