‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 gets a premiere date
“The Walking Dead” have a date with the undead this fall, as expected.
Much was revealed about the future of the hit show during the series’ Comic Con panel (read Daniel Fienberg’s live blog here), including when we’ll next see Rick Grimes and co. facing the ever-growing zombie threat. They also premiered a brand new trailer, which you can watch above.
The fifth season will premiere Sunday, October 12 at 9 p.m. on AMC. The season premiere of “Talking Dead,” hosted by Chris Hardwick will follow.
The new season will consist of 16 episodes and will air in two sections, with the final eight episodes beginning in February 2015.
Returning stars include Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Emily Kinney and more.
Elsewhere in the panel, creator Robert Kirkman promised “cool stuff ahead,” and talked about the cast’s plethora of “The Wire” veterans.
