Who are the Chucoteurs, the fearsome new villains to the series “The Walking Dead” ? Here’s everything you need to know about this community without faith nor law who will be soon enough to forget the Saviors of Negan… AMC Their name alone is enough to generate awe : the Whisperers finally arrive in The Walking Dead, and now nothing will be as before in the series horror. The expected, hoped-for but also feared by fans of the series, these new villains should oppose the hero of the series to be a challenge as they have never known in the past, not even in the face of the Governor or the Saviors of Negan. But who are these strange characters dressed in gruesome mask made of human skin ? The Whisperers, or Whisperers in the original version, appeared in the volume 22 of the comic-book, several years after the war against Negan and the defeat of the leader of the Saviors. While the different communities live harmoniously together under the direction of Rick and the pacific (which has saved Negan and the custody of prisoner), two soldiers cross the road of the dead that whisper, actually a community hidden among the zombies, and the members of which covered with skins human-they look terrifying. The Walking Dead season 9 : the chuchoteuse Alpha passes to action in a new trailer Led by a woman, Alpha (Samantha Morton), and a colossus baptized Beta (Ryan Hurst), the Whisperers lead a lifestyle prehistoric, primitive, violent, and without emotion, and see in the book of revelation-zombie an opportunity for the Man to return to his state of the animal, where only the strongest survive. Hidden within the hordes of Walkers, they communicate in whispers, use of weapons (blades, guns and other tools) and are able to lead the dead by taking advantage of their “overreaction”. In summary, a group countless and relentless, who in the comic book, will launch in a territory war against Rick and his people. Of course, it is not certain that the series follows to the letter the plot of the comics, all the more that Rick Grimes has left the show (permanently ?) during the first part of the current season, leaving the vacant place of the leader to his companion, Michonne. But the final scene of the final mid-season, which saw the part of the hero surrounded by a gang of Whisperers, suggests that the character terrifying of these sinister characters will then be preserved as is. And who knows if after Jesus, other protagonists shall not perish under the blows of these gross thick ? The second part of season 9 of The Walking Dead is to follow US+24 on OCS Shock as of Monday 11 February.
