Season Four of The Walking Dead ended with Rick Grimes and the rest of his fellow survivors outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate at the hands of the residents of Terminus.

Season Five picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.

In the premiere, we learn the true motives of the Terminans (who appear to be cannibals…) as Rick and the group find themselves in a vulnerable situation. Will they be able to work together? We’ll have to wait and see, but based on this new trailer, it’s not going to be a pretty rocky relationship right from the start!

Starring Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira, and Chad Coleman, The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 12th.

In exciting news for UK fans, The Walking Dead returns to Fox the day after it airs over in the states!
