Though you’ll have to wait until October to get your full Walking Dead fix, AMC has released a teaser for its fifth season in honor of the Comic-Con festivities, and it looks like the new episodes will continue to keep everyone on the edge of their seat.
The trailer picks up right where the season 4 finale left off, with Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincolcn) transitioning from farmer to fierce protector in the zombie apocalypse. The preview shows Rick and his crew joining up with the questionable Terminus gang to forge a trip to Washington, D.C., to figure out how to cure the plague that has destroyed the world as we know it.
In the new season it looks like Rick, Michonne (Danai Gurira), Carl (Chandler Riggs), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and the rest of the crew will face new challenges, but the objective is still the same. “When we get to Washington, we will make the dead die and the living will have this world again,” says Abraham.
It also appears that new relationships will be made and broken as the battle continues against the undead. We also catch a glimpse of what is going on inside of “the system.”
“From the opening tease in the premiere onward, Season 5 is without question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted,” said AMC president Charlie Collier, via Entertainment Weekly. “In the zombie apocalypse, event TV is alive and well, and I am proud to acknowledge that this uniquely talented writing staff, production team and cast have once again raised the bar (and the crossbow).”
The zombie-killing action starts on Sunday, October 12, at 9pm on AMC.
