A new poster for The Walking Dead Season 9B has given us a look at Whisperers leader Alpha.

Samantha Morton is set to play villain Alpha, the leader of a group that wear zombie skins as masks to blend in while they stalk their prey. “We’ll get to know more about this group and their brutal survival of the fittest philosophy and how that really plays out in horrifying ways,” showrunner Angela Kang told EW.

Here’s the synopsis for the second half of the season:

The second half of The Walking Dead 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.

The Walking Dead Season 9B will premiere on 11 February 2019 on FOX in the UK. Get all the latest horror news with every issue of SciFiNow.
