Much to our dismay, Rick Grimes, noble leader, has departed The Walking Dead. Fast forward 6 years later to when we pick up the second half of Season 9, and the survivors encounter a new threat unlike anything they’ve seen before. The Whisperers, known to blend in with Walkers by wearing stitched-together skin masks, have their eyes on the Alexandria Safe-Zone. They want to send a strong message after one of their own is taken hostage. Everything the members of Alexandria thought they knew about survival in this post-apocalyptic world is going to be challenged. In the face of this new adversary, who will rise to lead?

Stay on top of every episode, because we’re sure to see a lot of surprises! Watch our favorite survivors tested to their limits, when The Walking Dead returns Sundays at 9/8c on AMC (Ch. 131).
