Welcome to Hilltop: The Walking Dead mid-season finale promo and clip
Ahead of The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale this year, AMC has released a special trailer and exclusive clip in anticipation. First, the clip has Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Saddiq (Avi Nash) take Magna (Nadia Hilker) and the rest of the survivors to Hilltop in hopes of the community taking them in. Before they can plead their case, everyone must drop their weapons before being allowed inside the gates.
The trailer, however, has a much different tone. As Darryl (Norman Reedus), Aaron (Ross Marquand), and Jesus (Tom Payne) watch a herd of zombies from afar, they notice it behaving strangely. As the hints pile up over the 30-second runtime, we hear another zombie whisper words, heralding the arrival of The Whisperers. In order to survive the apocalypse, The Whisperers move among the dead, wearing their skin so they can blend in. You can check out both clips in the post below!
Recently Andrew Lincoln left the show to star in a big-screen trilogy set in the same universe. In his absence, the series stars Reedus (Blade II), Gurira (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War), Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Amelio, Tom Payne, Xander Berkeley, Khary Payton, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Newcomers to the series include Ryan Hurst as Beta, Samantha Morton’s Alpha from the comics, Lauren Ridloff as comic book character Connie, with Eleanor Matsuura as Yumiko from the comic series, and Fantastic Beasts star Dan Fogler in an undisclosed role.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead reigns the number one drama on television among adults 18-49 for the last six seasons. The series is executive produced by chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, showrunner Angela Kang, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Tom Luse and Denise Huth.
