The Walking Dead season nine has been enjoying a mid-season break after The Whisperers arrived and killed Jesus (played by Tom Payne), and fans are desperate for the show to return.
Season nine also saw Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) leave the show on a helicopter after it looked like he was going to be killed off.
This means there’s now only one Grimes left, Judith (Cailey Fleming), and it looks like she’s ready to carry on her family legacy.
In a teaser trailer releases on Twitter, the show’s major characters can be seen taking Rick’s sheriff’s hat and passing it on, with Judith finally wearing it.
The trailer was captioned: “The Grimes legacy lives on.”
It hints at Judith getting a much more prominent role in the second part of season nine.
The clip is only a few seconds long, yet it does also seem to hint that the show’s relationships will be slightly different in the second part of season nine.
It comes as fans have been speculating who could replace Rick as the leader of the survivors.
Commanding characters such as Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) are very much in the running to take control.
However, it seems as that role will fall to Judith and she will undoubtedly feel the weight of the Grimes name on her shoulders.
Meanwhile, the arrival of The Whisperers was teased in another new teaser trailer, and it suggests they’ll be more casualties to come.
The Whisperers are a group of survivors who wear the skins of zombies to blend in, however, their disguise also allows them to sneak up on unsuspecting victims.
Jesus found this out the hard way after he was killed by what he believed to be a zombie.
“Well, the second half of season nine, we really dive deeper into the story of the Whisperers,” Kang said.
“At the end of the first half, obviously, we get this reveal that these zombies are not evolving, that they are some sort of strange human threat.
“We’ll get to know more about this group and their brutal survival of the fittest philosophy and how that really plays out in horrifying ways.”
The Whisperers are lead by a character called Alpha (Samantha Morton), and it sounds like she and her group of survivors will mean business in season nine.
Who’s life will the deadly group claim next?
The Walking Dead season nine continues tonight on AMC and tonight at 9pm Monday on FOX in the UK. Seasons 1-8 are available to stream on NOW TV.
