The Whisperer War is coming to The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead AlphaThe Walking Dead season ten will continue next week with the main characters embroiled in a major conflict with the Whisperers.

The key art released by AMC for the upcoming mid-season premiere feature Michonne (played by Danai Gurira), Carol Peletier (played by Melissa McBride), Daryl Dixon (played by Norman Reedus), and Alpha (played by Samantha Morton) all in fierce, fighting form. The first half of the season ended with these characters in various precarious positions and a lot left uncertain. A new trailer for the season has also been released. The stakes are as high as ever and much needs to be resolved before the season concludes but it’s clear that more blood will be spilled before things can move forward on the zombie apocalypse drama.

Here is the synopsis of the second half of the season, according to the AMC press release:

The Walking Dead returns to find our group of survivors are trapped. Some in the confines of a cave filled with walkers, while others are caught in a spiral of suspicion and grief. All orchestrated at the hand of Alpha, who continues to prove the Whisperers are always watching, and one step ahead of the communities. Which includes the new and potentially deadly threat of having added Negan to their ranks.

Through this conflict and all they’ve lost, a few still hold onto hope, especially Eugene, who believes the mysterious voice he spoke with on the radio may lead to their world getting bigger once again.

But with the Whisperer War upon them, the collective communities must come together and possibly sacrifice all they have to find a way to silence the Whispers once and for all. Otherwise Alpha will ensure they face a certain doom.”

Don’t miss The Walking Dead season 10 when it returns on February 23 on AMC.
