AMC’s The Walking Dead has been on the air for nearly a decade, but it’s ready to become a whole new show in season 9. Following in the footsteps of the comic that inspired it, the newest storyline is something of a soft reboot, a new foundation on which to give the entire series a new coat of paint.
