The Walking Dead Season 9 Poster: Wait... Is That Washington, DC?

at .

A change of scenery looks set to be part of the agenda on The Walking Dead Season 9, and we're actually digging it. 

AMC has released the official poster for the new season, and it shows five key characters in front of the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. 

Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is front and center, with Michonne (Danai Gurira), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Carol (Melissa McBride), and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) also very much present in the official poster.

Rick looks very different from the last time we laid eyes on him on The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 16. This time around, he's clean shaven and has some hero hair thrown in for good measure. 

There have been multiple reports of late that Lincoln will appear in just six episodes of the upcoming season, meaning that he is very likely being written out early into it.

It will be a huge change of pace for the series, especially when you consider the reaction to the death of Carl (Chandler Riggs) just months ago. 

Lauren Cohan is also expected to be exiting the series because her ABC pilot, Whiskey Cavalier landed a series order and will debut in 2019.

Little is known about what will become of the characters, but we're sure we will get some more clarity when the show's cast and crew attend the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the show later this month. 

Generally, an exposition-heavy trailer is released at the show's panels, so there's that. We also need to get some more details on that pesky helicopter which keeps popping up.

AMC has also lifted the lid on the official poster for the second half of Fear The Walking Dead Season 4, and if you were holding out hope that Madison Clarke (Kim Dickens) somehow survived what happened at the stadium, then we have bad news for you.

She's not in the poster. Instead, it's filled with the newer additions to the cast alongside the sole original stars regulars Alycia Debnam-Carey and Colman Domingo.
