Episode titles for the first half of The Walking Dead season 9 are out and they offer a few hints about what’s to come in the new season.

The countdown to the season premiere of The Walking Dead continues and the latest revelation is the titles, writers and directors for the first eight episodes of season 9. There are some familiar names on the list, and most notably season 9 marks the return of a familiar face who is coming back to the show, but this time around he’ll be behind the camera.

Season 9 will no doubt be unforgettable as fans bid farewell to Rick Grimes. Andrew Lincoln’s departure looms large over the season, but there’s also a lot of excitement in the air as new showrunner Angela Kang takes over.

The Walking Dead heads into a bold new direction with a time jump that carries the show past the fallout from All Out War to a bright future full of possibility. But that’s not to say that the danger has passed. The Whisperers are coming and things are about to go to a whole new level.

Here’s the list of episode titles and their corresponding writers and directors:
