Walking Dead Accidentally Confirms Time Jump (And New Characters)


The Walking Dead Instagram may have just confirmed the time jump for Season 9 of the AMC series. New showrunner Angela Kang sent out some new gear for the crew, which consisted of a hat that read “The Walking Dead Season 9 Crew” in cursive. But the message from Kang clearly read “A New Beginning” in the inscription.

On the bill of the cap, there was a sticker from Angela Kang that read, “Welcome to Season 9! Here’s to a great year ahead and ‘A New Beginning.’” The phrase comes from Robert Kirkman after the war with Negan. In the comic book, this title is associated with the two-year time jump.

There have been lots of rumors around the time hop but this is the first official confirmation from the network (even if it happened by accident). So what does this mean for the future of the show?
