Season 9 of AMC’s The Walking Dead will bring Danai Gurira’s Michonne to a “position of power.” Over the last few seasons, Michonne has acted as one of Rick’s most trusted confidantes. The ninth season of the zombie drama will see Rick and company threatened by the possibility of civil war, as Maggie, the leader of the Hilltop, took issue with Rick’s decision not to kill Negan at the conclusion of the All-Out War storyline in season 8.
