Can’t get enough of “The Walking Dead”? We’re right there with you. The Season 5 premiere of the hit series does not air until Oct. 12, but AMC has released nine photos to hold fans over.
Last time viewers left off, Rick and a majority of his group – and new members Tara, Sgt. Abraham Ford, Rosita and Eugene – had been captured in a train car by the people at Terminus. Stripped of their weapons, things looked grim as the supposed “sanctuary” turned into a prison. Meanwhile, Carol and Tyreese were unknowingly heading into harm’s way with baby Judith as they set out for Terminus; and Beth’s location after her kidnapping was left a secret.
Maggie’s Lauren Cohan teased during the special “Talking Dead” summer episode that Season 5 of “The Walking Dead” will be “do or die” for our favorite characters. With their lives at stake at Terminus, the survivors will be forced to be not only “resourceful,” but also “brutal” in order to live through another day.
The Season 5 premiere is said to be the “biggest episode” yet, and will have fans of Robert Kirkman’s comic book series figuring out early on which direction the series will be taking. Viewers got a small taste of the drama ahead when the first official trailer for Season 5 was released during “The Walking Dead” panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The video highlighted not only the upcoming battle between Terminus leader Gareth and Rick, but also new groups of survivors – ones that could potentially act as even bigger threats to Rick’s crew.
New additions weren’t what had fans freaking out the most though. The clip in the trailer that had everyone talking was Bob’s decision to spill some major details to Gareth about Eugene’s knowledge of “the cure” for the zombie outbreak. Pack your bags … because it looks like the group will be on the road to Washington by the end of the season.
Season 5 of “The Walking Dead” will be split in half with the first eight episodes kicking off on AMC on Sunday, Oct. 12. The remaining eight episodes will air starting in February after the show returns from a holiday hiatus.
