The Walking Dead has season 8 lined-up! But The Whisperers are COMING…

by Lynn Rowlands

Season 7 of The Walking Dead hits Fox UK on Monday, 24th October. And of course, the big question we need answered in the season 7 premiere is who vicious Negan killed…

All we know for sure so far is that it wasn’t Rick, because as we reported recently, in the season 7 premiere episode, Rick promises Negan that he is going to kill him.

However, his words lose some of their impact when Negan, complete with a heavily bloodstained Lucille and Rick’s own hatchet, drags the ex-cop off into his trailer to an as yet unknown fate.

But as Rick is a major Walking Dead character, can we assume that he’s not going to get killed off?

Well, you know what they say; to assume makes an ass of you and me, and let’s face it, shock value is what The Walking Dead is all about.

However, while Rick’s fate and that of the group in general is going to of course be a running theme throughout season 7, what we do know is that AMC have already lined-up another run of the hit apocalyptic drama.

The broadcaster announced that good news in this post on Instagram…

#TWD is returning for Season 8 in 2017. Double tap if you're pumped.

And it was also on Instagram that AMC teased what Walking Dead devotees have concluded to be the arrival of a new group; The Whisperers.


With the image above, Walking Dead bosses wrote simply, “You’ve been warned.”

Those who’ve read The Walking Dead comic books have been discussing The Whisperers in various online forums, and terrifyingly, the consensus of opinion is that they make Negan look like a nursery teacher…

The Walking Dead Wikia states, “The Whisperers are a mysterious group of survivors who disguise themselves with roamer skin to blend in with them and not get noticed.”

And adds, “The Whisperers are a menacing group of enemies who come into play after Rick and Negan’s feud is settled.

“They wear the skin of the dead and walk among the roamers, constantly keeping their voices down and living like savages.

“They blend in with the undead and pose a massive threat…”

But have we already had our first look at The Whisperers in a season 7 promo?

Well, maybe…


We literally cannot wait for The Walking Dead season 7. Are you excited?
