'The Walking Dead' season 9 trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con

Andrew Lincoln

The show, which has always used the Image Comics series as more of a loose guideline, will soon become even more of its own independent thing.

"It's been so much a part of my life, I breathed it for 10 years", Lincoln added.

Andrew Lincoln is finally breaking his silence on leaving "The Walking Dead" after season 9.

They are attempting to integrate groups of people who were just recently at "all out war" with each other. Over eight seasons - the ninth season premieres in October - viewers have seen Lincoln's Rick Grimes lose countless friends and family members to the zombie apocalypse, including his wife (Sarah Wayne Callies) and son Carl (Chandler Riggs). It seems like the last season has been all but forgotten if these Twitter reactions are anything to go by.

Trump says he raised question of possible Russian election meddling with Putin
Department of Justice indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials for hacking into the DNC during the 2016 election. Trump said that the report exonerated him of collusion, when the report actually didn't address him at all.

And what can fans expect from the new season?

The trailer also teases the show's next big villains, the Whisperers, who are a huge comic threat. "This has been the most extraordinary, incredible and attractive experience of my career, made possibly largely by you guys".

There are certainly some gnarly new walkers in the trailer, reminiscent of the early seasons of The Walking Dead. "Still ready to deal with this world on its own terms", Rick says. "But, at the end of the day, it's all about Andrew Lincoln". The rest of the cast and moderator Yvette Nicole Brown remaining quite and giving the man time to address his fans.

The first look opened with Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) catching us - and a locked up Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) - up on the progress the communities have made in the time jump between season 8 and 9.
