'The Walking Dead' at Comic-Con 2014: Season 5 Premiere Date and Trailer
Friday, July 25, 2014
The Walking Dead came to Comic-Con on Friday and will come back to AMC this October. AMC announced that The Walking Dead season 5 will premiere Sunday, October 12 at 9pm, followed by all-new episodes of Talking Dead hosted by Chris Hardwick and Kevin Smith's Comic Book Men.
The Comic-Con panel featured executive producers Scott Gimple, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman and Michael Cudlitz.
A new three-minute trailer for the fifth season debuted, and it offers a large glimpse into what's to come. Terminus looks deadly and dangerous, with gas and torture. However, it appears Rick's group agrees to work with the Termites to go to Washington for the cure. Of course, there isn't a whole lot of trust between the two groups.
The primary theme of season 5 will be about learning to live with your actions and accepting the new people that these characters have become. They've all done some horrible, deadly things that have changed them.
