‘Walking Dead’ season five gets trailer, premiere date

- July 25th, 2014

Calling all undead, get your first glimpse at The Walking Dead’s upcoming fifth season.

AMC premiered the trailer at Comic Con on Friday, which situates Rick, Daryl, and their team of misfit miscreant survivors in yet another dangerous predicament with unabashed sociopaths, has just enough drama and gore to keep all deprived fans going for the next couple of months.

“…season five is without a question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted,” Charlie Collier, AMC president, said in a press release.

The show picks up where the last season ended, with the troupe en route to Washington in an attempt to cure the unknown illness that has caused the zombie apocalypse to break out.

Unfortunately, before they can reach their destination, they’re kidnapped by a group of blood lust filled strangers.

It all works out (kind of) for Rick and his odd family, however, when one of the strangers announces he wants to come with them to Washington and receive the cure, too.

“When we get to Washington we will let the dead die and the living will have this world again,” Sgt. Ford says at one point.

It’s obvious that getting to D.C. will be the main storyline audiences will see transpire on screen this season, but there’s a healthy dose of drama between the two leaders to keep the series fresh and engaging.

“These people are my family. If you hurt them in anyway, I will kill you,” Rick utters menacingly to the newcomer.

Most importantly, however, is the ratio of living people to the undead.

Fans of the show will be impressed with the amount of carnage being tossed around in the trailer, and it appears AMC is amping up for their goriest season yet.

It’s like Rick says to Carl toward the end of the trailer, “No matter what anyone tells you, you’re not safe.”

The Walking Dead season five premieres on Oct. 12 at 9 p.m.
