AMC have released another trailer for The Walking Dead Season 5, only this time it is called the “official” trailer, which means things have gotten serious!
The trailer looks terrific, and blends big action spectacles with tight horror in the space of just thirty seconds, and there are plenty of quotes made available too, including the now very familiar “hunt or be hunted”. I personally like the “it’s not over till they’re all dead” warning, so check out the trailer below.
The Walking Dead writer and producer Robert Kirkman recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly, and he had this to say about the first episode of Season 5:
“By minute two or three of our season premiere, I think the vast majority of our questions have been answered,” says Kirkman, “and five or six more have been presented, so you’re very much going to be invested, well-informed, and ready for the ride that we’re going to take you on.”
Season 5 see’s showrunner Scott Gimple return for his second season, and this is the first time the same showrunner has returned since Frank Darrabont who took charge of Season 1 and half of Season 2. Gimple is said to already be developing the sixth season.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, “The Walking Dead” stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira, Chad Coleman, Seth Gilliam, Andrew J. West, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, and Sonequa Martin-Green.
The series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Tom Luse, and Greg Nicotero.
The Walking Dead Season 5 begin on AMC on October 12th.
