Who are the Whisperers?

At the end of the season nine midseason finale, the survivors met the Whisperers for the first time.

In episode eight, the new villains attacked Daryl (played by Norman Reedus), Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Magna (Nadia Hilker), Aaron( Ross Marquand), Michonne (Dani Gurira) and Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura) in a graveyard, apparently killing Jesus (Tom Payne) in the process.

AMC released the first minute of episode nine ahead of tonight’s premiere.

The clip teases the Whisperers are going to be a huge threat.

HOW TO WATCH THE WALKING DEAD IN THE UK?

The surviving members surround Jesus and prepare themselves for oncoming Walkers and evil Whisperers to attack.

It is then when they hear the Whisperers speak for the second time.

The anonymous Whisperer says: “You die now” as they walk towards the group.

Judging but the clip, it looks like it is going to be a brutal battle to get out alive.

Daryl and Michonne take on the Walkers with a crossbow and samurai swords.

Just as the pair prepare to turn to follow their group, one of the Whisperers posing as a Walker leaps into action, charging at Michonne with a machete.

They manage to escape through a gate but the Whisperers are seen making their way through the same escape route.

WILL MICHONNE RETURN IN THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 10?

Fans of The Walking Dead comic book series will be no strangers to the Whisperers.

The whisperers are the new villains in the series, who wander around wearing suits made from human skin.

Each Whisperer is an evil human, who cover themselves in rotting human flesh in order to blend in with Walkers.

In doing so, they avoid being found out by both the dead and the living.

The group attacks neighbouring communities to send a message to Daryl (Norman Reedus), leading to an all-out war between the Whisperers and the survivors.

The Whisperers are known to decapitate people and display their heads on sticks as a sign of victory.

Alpha (Samantha Morton) and Beta (Ryan Hurst) are the leaders of the group.

In the original comic books by Robert Kirkman, Alpha is one of the most notorious villains of The Walking Dead.

She believes the zombie apocalypse was necessary to restore the natural order.

In the comics, Alpha’s teenage daughter is in a romantic relationship with Alpha’s enemy Rick Grimes son Carl (Chandler Riggs).

However, during season eight, Carl was killed which suggests the storyline of Alpha and the Whisperers in the forthcoming run will be dramatically altered.

Actor Josh McDermitt (Eugene Porter) told Entertainment Weekly the group are “a very scary threat” that “hasn’t been seen before on the show”.

Josh said: “He (Eugene) is going to try to figure out exactly how to survive, how to get free from these walkers that are on his tail and hopefully, since he’s a man of science, figure out exactly how they are able to talk and how they’re able to move faster, and kind of figure out where they are and cut them off at every turn,

“I mean, it’s a very scary threat that I don’t think we’ve seen before on the show, at least from the character’s point of view – It’s an exciting place to be because there’s so much unknown,” Josh said.

The Walking Dead season 9, episode 9 airs tonight at 8pm central on AMC.
