Norman also added that it is a whole creepy way of doing things this year.
To this, Judith Grimes star Cailey Fleming continued as “The Whisperers are a really different threat. They’re terrifying, and you can’t tell if they’re a walker or a Whisperer.”
The Walking Dead Season 10: Will Feature New Character
The brand new incoming of last year, The Whisperers will be joined by a new character in the forthcoming season of The Walking Dead. Thora Birch is going to play Gamma. She will be the protector for The Whisperers who has also become a follower of Alpha. As suggested by her name, she will likely be the third-in-command of The Whisperers behind Alpha and Beta.
Kevin Carroll (The Leftovers) is also going to join the upcoming season. He will play Virgil, a survivor who is anxious to reunite with his family.
The Walking Dead Movie
Along with the announcement news, SDCC also premiered a small teaser video for The Walking Dead movie. The teaser ended with the words that the movie will appear only in theatres.
However, the shooting for the movie is yet to begin. It is expected to kick-start in the second half of this year. The film will continue the half-hanging story of the character Rick Grimes played by Andrew Lincoln. He left the show in the ninth season, as it was already known that he’d return in the movie.
The Walking Dead Season 10 Will Unravel More Secrets
The tenth season will delve the audience more in the underlying mysteries between Alpha (Samantha Morton) and Beta (Ryan Hurst). Ryan Hurst revealed this news at the SDCC. According to him, the upcoming season will investigate more about Alpha and Beta, and sort of why they became who they are. Also, he stated that it was a lot of fun to shoot for the tenth season too.
The upcoming season might also reveal the secret identity, that Beta is carrying behind that fleshy scary mask. In a talk with EW in March, the show-runner Angela Kang stated that they definitely have obvious, clear ideas of what Beta was doing before the apocalypse and in those early years and things. And it seems that the upcoming season will throw some light on that side as well.
Angela also revealed that the tenth season would explore not just paranoia but trauma and PTSD as well. As she stated, “One of the great things from the comic book that we got really excited about, there’s this idea of propaganda and paranoia, and this idea of silence the Whisperers, which creator Robert Kirkman played really well.”
The upcoming season of The Walking Dead is going to release on Sunday, October 6, 2019. The show will premiere on AMC. According to the audience, this will be the most awaited season of The Walking Dead of all time. Stay tuned for more updates on The Walking Dead Season 10.
