walking dead season 9 midseason 1

The midseason premiere of ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 9 is just days away! Ahead of the episode, AMC has released several still photos and a teaser trailer!

The new photos show our favorite characters (the ones who are left, anyway) in a series of wild looking scenes! Including the newly escaped Negan taking up a new hobby. In a recent statement about season 9, AMC said:

“The second half of Season 9 finds our survivors continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. 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 groups’ rules no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, [one that’s] unlike any  they have encountered before.”

It seems that there is no rest for the weary, as the group will undoubtedly face new threats. AMC teased that there will be fresh new horrors ahead, saying:

“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.”

Check out the new photos below:

The new teaser trailer features Samantha Morton’s Whisperer leader Alpha introducing herself, and the conflict that will threaten the group. Alpha says:

“Your people crossed into our land. Your people killed our people. There will be conflict. I am Alpha.”

Morton will debut Alpha in the midseason premiere, and from there, the series will explore the full storyline of The Whisperers. The group first appeared in ‘The Walking Dead’ comics in issue #130, led by Alpha, whose true name is never revealed. Alpha insists that any member of The Whisperer group leave any signs of civilization and emotion behind. Alpha is faced with trouble when her daughter, Lydia, develops a relationship with Carl Grimes. Cassady McClincy will play Lydia on the show.

‘The Walking Dead’ season 9 mid-series premiere will air on Sunday, February 10. Check out the new teaser trailer below
