We’re less than a week away from the return of The Walking Dead, and when the show comes back on the air, The Whisperers mean some serious business.
The latest teaser for the second half of season 9 gives viewers a taste of what’s in store for these next eight episodes. The Whisperers were informally introduced in the midseason finale, but now they’re officially here and ready to cause some trouble. We see snippets of Beta (played by Ryan Hurst) and The Whisperers leader Alpha (played by Samantha Morton). A voice can be heard speaking during the teaser saying, “Your people crossed into our land. Your people killed our people. There will be conflict.”
As the trailer intensifies, the mysterious voice identifies herself by saying, “I am Alpha.”
Check out the intense teaser below.
The synopsis for the second half of the season teases “disturbing and terrifying” trouble ahead as we dive deeper into the world of the Whisperers. Check out the new synopsis below.
[row]“The second half of “The Walking Dead” Season 9 finds our groups of survivors, both old and new, continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves. What they do know is that they are in undeniable danger. They will soon realize the world just beyond does not operate as they thought. The group’s rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it’s unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out. All that is certain is the stakes are high and numerous.”[/row]
The Walking Dead returns on February 10th on AMC. You can also watch the midseason premiere episode right now on AMC’s streaming service, AMC Premiere.
