The Walking Dead Key Art Shows Sheriff Rick Grimes Back in Action

Rick's got his hat back, and we've got a synopsis for Season 9

Liam Mathews

Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) is getting back to his roots in his final season of The Walking Dead. The official Season 9 key art shows the former sheriff wearing his classic sheriff's hat, an iconic look from the series premiere that he hasn't worn much in the later seasons. In fact, he passed it along to his son Carl (Chandler Riggs), who gave it to his sister Judith before he died last season. And it looks like Rick has taken the hat back from Judith, which is kinda messed up, actually. Rick, how you gonna take a little girl's hat?


AMC also released the official synopsis for Season 9. Check it out:

Also also, AMC released a bunch of gallery photos of the 17 of the show's regulars -- which isn't even all of them -- including one of Eugene (Josh McDermitt) with a ponytail instead of his iconic mullet. He's a new man.
