Like a walker prowling the parched countryside in search of its next meal, fans of The Walking Dead have shown great patience in waiting for the second half of season 9 to return to FOX. And now the wait is over.


One of the biggest shows on television is back for more gruesome thrills, intense drama and limb chewingly good fun – and things are about to get pretty hairy for the survivors.


Not caught up on the first half of season 9? Then don’t read on, because there are major spoilers ahead…


Six years after the dramatic departure of Rick Grimes (we’re still in shock), the survivors have grown apart and are struggling to come to terms with the ever-changing landscape they inhabit. But with enemies both old and new ready to emerge and create all sorts of blood-splattered chaos, can they put their differences aside before things go from bad to apocalyptic?

The Walking Dead season 9

Speaking of new enemies, the Whisperers – who first appeared in episode 8 – are set to shake things up radically in the second part of this unmissable season. This terrifying group, who are led by the ruthless Alpha (Samantha Morton), are about to force the survivors to think twice about the situation they face.


The conclusion of season 9 is set to be more explosive than ever, but before you get stuck into the action, discover more about the show from Nadia Hilker, who plays the combative Magna. We caught up with the actress to talk the demands of filming, Andrew Lincoln and the Whisperers…
