Change is coming to Rick and the gang in season 9 of The Walking Dead. We already knew that the show was losing both Rick and Maggie. Now it looks like they’ll be getting a new adversary in the form of the Whisperers.

Along with the unveiling of the trailer for season 9 of the AMC zombie series, it was revealed that Academy Award-nominated actress, Samantha Morton will be joining the series as the leader of the Whisperers, Alpha.

It will be interesting to see if the new changes will bring back the fans that have been drifting off over the last few seasons or if this new season will mark a turn towards a series wrap up in the next couple of years.

New world. New rules. The Walking Dead returns for Season 9 on Sunday, October 7 at 9/8c.
