The Walking Dead's new boss previews time-jumping Season 9
“There’s a fun Western vibe that has emerged,” says new showrunner Angela Kang in an interview with EW. “We are going into a period where a lot of the things that we’ve seen in previous seasons have broken down, so they’ve got these horses and carriages that are being drawn around instead of cars. Things are lit with oil lamps. People are using different kinds of weaponry. There’s a real grittiness to it that I think will be fun and fresh for the viewers.” In a separate interview with The Wrap, Kang adds that "there will be some intriguing new people that our people run across." Kang also hinted at "interesting stuff" involving Norman Reedus' Daryl Dixon. “There’s various reasons why, related to that character, that we haven’t really told a story, like a love story, for him,” she says. “He’s this abused character who doesn’t trust easily.”
