The Walking Dead's newest villains are a group called the Whisperers and they are already just as strange on-screen as they were in the comics. Obviously, Season 9B will dive more into this unprecedented foe and their leaders Alpha and Beta, but the established facts about the Whisperers on The Walking Dead will seriously creep you out.

The show started introducing the group towards the middle of Season 9 when Rosita and Eugene encountered a herd that relentlessly pursued them during a mission. Aaron, Jesus, and Daryl thought Eugene was losing it when he said the walkers were "talking" and purposely hunting him down. Eugene has evolved to be quite brave, so it was a point of concern. And, Michonne, Daryl, and several others were stunned when a “walker” got the drop on Jesus and stabbed him in the back. They discovered that this “walker” was really a man wearing walker skin on his body. Well, that's gross.

Comic fans are quite familiar with the Whisperers and why they are such an ominous threat. But some TV watchers will be shocked at the details behind the group’s origin story and general way of life.
