Alpha, this is the name of the fierce, cruel and sadistic leadeuse of the Whisperers. A torturer who has just found his interpreter among the big shots of the cinema.

The Walking Dead season 9 is about to see the terrible changes. Between the departure of two of its main actors, Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) and Lauren Cohan (Maggie), of the coming of the new showrunneuse, which will impose a new paw more “western” to the series, the survivors will at the same time take care of the next imminent threat that’s going to fall over : the Whisperers.


Uh, what is that even ?


While the interpreter of Rick Grimes officially announced his departure from The Walking Dead at the Comic-Con of San Diego in 2018, the convention was also the occasion for the show runners to reveal a trailer beginning to use what was going to happen during the next season. After Negan, so turn des Whisperers to make their appearance in the series. And as an announcement never comes alone, the production has also indicated who was going to incarnate on the screen, the Alpha, the leadeuse sociopath of the group.

So this will be Samantha Morton, which appeared in Minority Report, fantastic Animals, Synecdoche, New York, Mister Lonely , or still In America who will lend his features to the antagonist. An actress of choice , which has been named several times : Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA among others. And an announcement effect, which comes burnish a bit the coat of arms of the series of zombies.

Of their sides, the show runners have clearly felt that the series was on a downward slope for a little while and was starting to lose his audience and his viewers (14.4 million in season 5 and 11.9 million during season 7). After the arc, Negan, who had been a bit effete, will make their entrance on the stage of the Whisperers, a group of people totally crazy.

They dépècent the skin of the rangers to apply it on themselves and walk freely among them. A threat perfect between zombies and humans, since it is virtually impossible to disassociate the two. In short, a new season that promises something quite huge as the arc is appreciated by the fans. It could well give a boost to the hearings of the series.

The Walking Dead season 9 will be aired from October 7 on AMC, and in US+24 on OCS in France.
