The Walking Dead recently wrapped its ninth season, perhaps its best yet. This is due in large part to longtime writer Angela Kang, who had a lot on her plate when she took over the showrunner reins from Scott Gimple, including the aftermath of losing Carl, closing out Rick Grimes‘ story on the series, time jumps, broken communities, and introducing the infamous Whisperers from the comics. Kang also brought us one step closer to Negan meeting Alpha in season 10.
