Turns out Rick and the gang will not get stuck around Terminus for long. AMC has released the full trailer of "The Walking Dead" season 5 at the show's San Diego Comic Con panel where much about the highly-anticipated season was discussed.
Producer Scott Gimple introduced the trailer that opened with the last scene of season 4 where Rick said the people of Terminus mess with the wrong people. After a showdown, the leader of Terminus explains the deal that may save Rick and the others' lives. The gang is heading to Washington DC to find the cure with one of the Termite on board. Viewers also get a sight of Beth who had been separated from the gang towards the end of last season.
"From the opening tease in the premiere onward, season five is without question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted," Charlie Collier, AMC president, said in a statement. "In the zombie apocalypse, event television 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)."
Gimple said that viewers would learn about the background story of Terminus and why they do the things they do. All the main characters will also get a spotlight on how they have changed in order to survive. Robert Kirkman revealed that the new season would be gravitating more towards the comic book although he didn't specify which part.
Producer Gale Anne Hurd said there would be new setting which is kind of a suburbia. From the look of the trailer, Hurd was talking about the place Beth lives in. A female police officer tells Beth that she is part of "the system" which apparently Beth is trying to escape from. Emily Kinney refused to talk about the place further but revealed that her character was no longer an innocent teen.
"The Wire" star Seth Gilliam is the new face of season 5, playing Father Gabriel. The new season starts on October 12 at 9 P.M. on AMC.
