AMC's zombie apocalypse show The Walking Dead will return for its ninth season on 7 October and during the San Diego Comic-Con, the makers of the show revealed the first full-length trailer of the upcoming season.

Over five minutes in length, The Walking Dead trailer is packed with questions, action sequences and a lot of walkers. It picks up where the eighth season left off with Negan being alive and living without his Saviors. The biggest conversation, however, is what happens after Rick Grimes leaves — something that has been confirmed at this point.

While the group fights the walkers and build a life for themselves, Rick has a conversation with Negan which throws light on the complexities of being a leader. Maggie and Glenn's child is shown in the trailer, and Judith, Rick's daughter, is shown as a toddler.
