The Walking Dead Season 5 Opens With A Scene That Shocks Even The Cast And Crew

fb share tweet share

Walking DeadSeason four of AMC’s The Walking Dead was far and away the best the zombie drama has ever been, especially the final eight episodes. Between that momentum, and the grim, intense trailer for season five that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, it’s a good time to be a fan. Last season ended on a cliffhanger, and we’ve been promised time and again that the new episodes will “hit the ground running.” Now thanks to showrunner Scott Gimple, director/producer/special effects guru Greg Nicotero, and some of the cast, we have a better idea of what that “running” will look like, and it is going to be rough.

We weren’t able to be at Comic-Con, but our big sister Cinema Blend was all over that mess, and they had a chance to sit down with Gimple, Nicotero, and others to chat about the upcoming season. According to their talk, the first six minutes of the premiere episode is going to be totally bonkers. Star Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, the leader of a rag tag group of survivors trying to navigate a zombie apocalypse, says the cast and crew were all shocked by what goes down. He says, “All of us were just dumbstruck and said, ‘We’re not going to be able to show this. We’re not going to be able to show this.’…We are showing it.”

San Diego Comic-Con is like a magical wonderland for people like crowds, waiting in long lines, and getting the first look at upcoming movies and television shows. And probably comics, somewhere. Because it has a foot in both worlds, The Walking Dead has always used the platform of Comic-Con to reveal news and footage, and this year is no different, as AMC’s hit zombie series revealed this lengthy new trailer, as well as a premiere date for season five.

There may be some light SPOILERS for Walking Dead fans beyond this point. And some swear words.

The Walking DeadThat massive spectacle that San Diego Comic-Con has become kicks off in earnest today with tons of high-profile upcoming movies and television shows stopping by to show off their wares. Being based on an actual comic book, AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead has always had a strong presence, and this year isn’t going to be any different. The show took over a portion of “America’s Finest City” to give fans a slice the post-apocalyptic zombie excitement.

We aren’t lucky, or driven enough to be at Comic-Con this year (we’re afraid of large crowds), but our fabulous older sibling Cinema Blend is all over the place, and they were able so snap these photos of the badass Walking Dead display. Fans who watched season four of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company trying to make their way through the zombie-filled world will recognize these big set pieces.

You’ve read the comics. You’ve seen the AMC series. You’ve played the Telltale game. You’ve played the board games. You’ve donned the cosplay outfits. You’ve gotten the neck tattoos. You may have thought you’d experienced The Walking Dead in every way imaginable already, but you haven’t done this yet. This is Walking Dead margarine. No wait, it’s the franchise’s first foray into the world of mobile and tablet gaming, The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land. The debut teaser trailer can be seen above, courtesy of AMC, and it sadly doesn’t let us in on what kind of a game this will be. Other than one where zombies threaten the lives of everyone around, of course.

The Walking Dead: The Game – Tragedy And Childbirth Make Episode 4 A Series Highlight

While the Episode 4 SPOILERS are kept to a minimum, you’ll definitely want to play Episode 3 before reading.

walking dead gameIn the world of The Walking Dead, the only safety is in knowing that there is no safety. Undead walkers are around every corner and behind every door, just waiting to turn people’s faces into mulch. Yet Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Game has consistently proven that humans are still capable of the most monstrous actions in this post-apocalyptic world, and Episode 4, Amid the Ruins, is a dark and dreary reminder of that fact. Complete with tons of gore, decision-making, and the brief potential for humane sympathy, of course.

WDeadComicConSan Diego Comic-Con 2014 officially kicks off tomorrow with “Preview Night,” which used to just be an excuse to wander around the dealer’s floor before the hordes arrived, but now is the day you have to get in line if you want to get into Hall H.

SPOILERS FOR THE MOST RECENT SEASON OF THE WALKING DEAD

First up we’ve got the above banner for The Walking Dead, showing off the dire situation our favorite zombie survivors were left in as of last season. If you recall, Rick and the gang had gotten split into smaller groups after the shitstorm at the prison, and the whole season was leading up to their eventual reunion…and to a place called Terminus. The self-described “end of the line” was a beacon of potential hope throughout a season where the survivors were otherwise scattered and just trying to survive on a day-to-day basis. Unfortunately, this being The Walking Dead, things didn’t turn out well once they got to Terminus. As in “locked in a train car by heavily armed nutjobs of dangerous intent.”
