The Whisperers May Be Coming To ‘The Walking Dead’

There’s no doubt that Negan and the Saviors will completely change the way things work on The Walking Dead come season seven, but there might be a possibly even scarier threat coming. Yesterday, The Walking Dead‘s official Instagram account posted a mysterious picture that had fans of the comic book starting to theorize about a group known as The Whisperers.

You’ve been warned – #TWD premieres October 23.

The Whisperers are a group of people who completely abandoned their pre-apocalypse lives and now live in a cult-like community. They don’t believe in killing walkers; instead, they wear their skins as disguise and live among them. To remain unnoticed, they only communicate by whispering, which is how they got their name. Led by an unnamed Alpha, they are a deadly threat to other humans. But how does the above image tease the Whisperers?

In an iconic comic book moment, the Whisperers capture a few Alexandrians and put their heads on spikes to send a message to the other survivors: Leave us alone.
