Walking Dead Introduces the Whisperers' Alpha in Skin-Crawling Promo

The Walking Dead Season 9 B Whisperers

The Walking Dead may not return until February, but AMC is already trying to get fans hyped for the series' newest adversary. In a new 30-second spot, AMC introduces Alpha, leader of the Whisperers, complete with her own creepy theme music.

The video, which debuted on Entertainment Weekly, can be viewed below:

Actress Samantha Morton, who you might recognize from films like John Carter, Minority Report or Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, has actually spent most of her career on television and will buff her resume further as she takes on the role of Alpha for AMC.

Fans of the comic series will know Alpha as a complicated and worthy adversary for Rick -- or, in the case of the show, more likely Michonne and company. The Whisperers are pitched as a group "unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before." Hoping to return The Walking Dead to its horror roots, the Whisperers are said to make Season 9 "more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out."

There are already whispers of the Whisperers, as AMC gears up for The Walking Dead's return on February 10. The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 pm ET/PT on AMC.
