The Walking Dead's Season 10 premiere is only about a week away, and to help you get excited about what's coming up, AMC has released a featurette with cast and producers previewing what's to come in the next chapter of the horror drama. You can expect some really intense war-of-the-mind stuff with the Whisperers. "It's a different type of war," says executive producer Greg Nicotero. "We're dealing with this subversive, Cold War-type paranoia."

As Season 10 picks up, the Whisperers have not been seen in the six months since they massacred a bunch community members and put their heads on pikes, but the trauma of that event lingers, and the fear that the Whisperers are still out there and will return is ever-present. "With Alpha, it's very much when is she going to attack and how is she going to attack," says executive producer Denise Huth.
