Still dead. Still walking.
AMC has debuted a new extended trailer for the fifth season of The Walking Dead at SDCC, while also announcing a premiere date of Sunday October 12.
The new trailer offers plenty of big-scale zombie action, while also teasing new character turns for the main group of survivors as they come up against opposing human forces at Terminus. Actual plot details are kept to a seeming minimum, but dialogue indicates that a renewed push to reach Washington and potentially “cure” the zombie apocalypse will play a key role.
Producer Gale Anne-Hurd teased the possibility of “suburban” locations and bigger than previously-seen setpieces, while it was also confirmed that The Wire’s Seth Gilliam will join the cast in the role of Father Gabriel.
