Details known about The Walking Dead Season 9 include that it will feature a time jump and a back-to-basic approach.
A new group will be introduced known as the Whisperers who walk among the dead in suits made of human flesh.
Fantastic Beasts’ Samantha Morton will play the Whisperers leader, Alpha, Ozark’s Cassidy McClincy is playing her daughter, Lydia, and Sons of Anarchy‘s Ryan Hurst is playing the second in command with Beta.
“We’ll explore what happened as man made objects and structures break down. Infrastructure like roads and bridges are changing and crumbling. And we’ll also explore what happens as resources are getting low,” new showrunner Angela Kang previously described the upcoming season.
“There’s a fun Western vibe that has emerged,” Kang said. “We are going into a period where a lot of the things that we’ve seen in previous seasons have broken down, so they’ve got these horses and carriages that are being drawn around instead of cars. Things are lit with oil lamps. People are using different kinds of weaponry. There’s a real grittiness to it that I think will be fun and fresh for the viewers.”
The Walking Dead Season 9 premiers Sunday, October 7 at 9pm EST on AMC.
