First look at the Whisperers in The Walking Dead Season 9 mid-season

AMC has unveiled new key art for the upcoming premiere of The Walking Dead Season 9 mid-season on Sunday, February 10th, and we get a good look at the Whisperers including their leader Alpha. As you can tell from the images, the Whisperers wear skins of the dead in order to trick them into thinking the Whisperers are part of the horde. They’re also doing the “shh” sign with one finger over the mouth. Yep, the Whisperers.

Playing Alpha is Samanta Morton. You may remember her from Minority Report as Agatha, the oldest of three precogs with the ability to see future crimes. She also appeared in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Synopsis: 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.

The Walking Dead is based on the comic by Robert Kirkman and follows a group of survivors of a zombie apocalypse. Angela King is the showrunner and executive producer with Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Tom Luse, Denise Huth and Scott M. Gimple as executive producers.

The Walking Dead Season 9 mid-season premieres on Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 9 p.m. PT/ET.
