The Walking Dead season 9's new teaser trailer hints at Rick / Maggie clash and who'll be wielding Lucille

Trouble is brewing on The Walking Dead, as Rick and Maggie look set to clash.

In a new teaser trailer for the upcoming ninth season of the AMC hit, Maggie makes her concerns about Rick very clear, telling him: “You told me you’d be the one following me. But you didn’t. That changes now.”

Elsewhere, Maggie faces an attempt on her life as somebody attacks her with a knife, and Michonne can be seen holding Lucille, the baseball bat weapon associated with Negan.

You can watch the new promo below:

“Eight years is a really long time to be in those emotional depths,” Lauren Cohan said recently, explaining why she is moving on from her role as Maggie.

“It’s really fun for me because I never thought about drama as much when I started this career and I always kind of assumed I’d do like, light fare.”

At Comic-Con earlier this summer, Rick actor Andrew Lincoln confirmed season nine will be his last.

Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner Samantha Morton is joining to play Alpha, leader of new threat The Whisperers, with Cassady McClincy and Ryan Hurst playing Alpha’s daughter Lydia and Whisperers second-in-command Beta respectively.

Last week, the show released a set of first-look photos that may offer a preview of what life will be like on the AMC series once Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan depart their long-running lead roles later in the season.

The Walking Dead returns on October 7 on AMC in the US and then the following night (October 8) on FOX and NOW TV in the UK.
