“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC for Season 9’s mid-season premiere this Sunday night, February 10, and the battle between our heroes and the creepy Whisperers will be in full swing when we catch back up with the gang. After all, they had just killed Jesus in the mid-season finale last year, so the first shot has needless to say already been fired.
How will Daryl and the gang be able to tell the difference between Whisperers and Walkers? As this new clip suggests, shooting anything that looks like a zombie is a good place to start!
The mid-season return has the following synopsis…
“The recent loss of their own drives the communities to band together. New leaders rise when a disturbing and dangerous threat is unmasked. An escaped captive revisits his past.”
The second half of 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.
