THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 5

The Walking Dead Season 5: All The Latest News On The Spoilers, Reveals And Release Date Of The Fifth Season Of The Walking Dead

It is reported that AMC has launched The Walking Dead season 5 trailers and for the close followers, the release date has finally been revealed. The key plot spoiler is also out. The president of AMC, Charlie Collier said to Entertainment Weekly that the Walking Dead season 5 is without question the best, most ambitious and the most satisfying season that the team ever put together. According to AMC, this is the best and the most exciting season that they have crafted.

The trailer of this new season was released in San Diego Comic-Con during a live panel that included some TWD actors; Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira and Andrew Lincoln. The season five plot has been revealed. After being trapped in a railroad car by mysterious occupants at the terminus, Rick Grimes and his associates are tied and gagged. They are even forced to kneel in front of a metal trough, probably to be killed. Morgan speaks of knowing a man who has the cure to the zombie plague, but needs to get to him to Washington D.C. she does this to obviously buy them time. The Terminus leader, Gareth, allows the heroes to look for the cure, but gives the condition that they should join him. The whole group embarks on the journey afterwards to the nation’s capital to look for a cure. Rick gives a stern warning as he does not trust Gareth.

It seemed that aside from worrying about the zombies, Beth will also have love problems next season.

Actor Norman Reedus dropped a few hints that Daryl and Beth’s romance will pick up next season. At the recent San Diego Comic Con, the cast and crew of the hit zombie apocalypse TV series graced the event and, as expected, some spoilers were revealed.

Since Beth and Daryl were stuck together last season, it did not take long before the fans speculated that the two will develop a romantic relationship. According to She Knows, Norman Reedus agreed with the viewers, but is unsure whether the people behind the scenes were aware of it.

“This is how I took it, doing it. I took it like, if Daryl had feelings for Beth, he didn’t understand them. So he was like a child, like, ‘I don’t understand what this means.’ But, it was more intimate than a coupling,” the report cited Norman Reedus as saying.

The rumor of a possible romance between the two was fueled by the statement of director and executive producer Greg Nicotera. “When they pitched Season 4, they were talking about when the prison goes down and having Daryl and Beth be bunkered together. And it’s interesting because I get to see all the cuts and I see all the edits from the director’s cuts onward. And I loved the scene in the kitchen when they’re talking, and I got the sense that Daryl was starting to kind of fall in love with Beth a little,” he said.

If you have a pulse, you have certainly heard of AMC’s colossal hit TV series The Walking Dead. And if you’ve seen The Walking Dead, you know the name Merle Dixon. Must we add that there are spoilers ahead?

Actor Michael Rooker had a one-episode shot at the following material: a trigger-happy racist with anger issues and a bone-chillingly good rooftop rant against God. Thanks to fan fervor, he went from a cameo character to co-starring on the show as Dixon, the man audiences shouldn’t have been able to sympathize with and yet could not stop watching. Now, after an unjust, yet monumental (or so say the fans) death on The Walking Dead, Rooker has returned to mesmerize us in the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy. We talked zombies and aliens with Rooker in a phone interview about the role that has him “jumping up and down.”

Has Merle Dixon’s popularity changed your career?
It has indeed. Unfortunately, I was killed off on The Walking Dead, but the Guardians of the Galaxy gig was mine to have if indeed the schedule was going to work out, and lo and behold, the stars came through. So, wow—I go from a great run on The Walking Dead with Merle Dixon, which I think is by far the biggest TV show in the world right now, to probably what is going to pan out to be one of the premier summer blockbusters.

Verizon’s FiOS app has been leading the way on the Xbox One live-TV front, and now it’s getting a handful more channels in its stable. If you’re a subscriber, you now have access to the likes of AMC HD, Showtime, Encore, Bloomberg TV and ten others. As Verizon tells it, this brings the total channel count to 88 across both the Xbox 360 and its younger brother, the Xbox One. Whether you’re going to use them to keep up with the exploits of the Ricktatorship or Homeland, however, is up to you.

Walking Dead Season 5 Interviews Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira Walking Dead Season 5: Heres Whats Going On With Rick  Michonne

WARNING. Article Contains Walking Dead Season 4 SPOILERS. 

-

The Walking Dead season 5 was of course a highlight of Comic-Con 2014, as AMC debuted a new trailer that set up some pretty high-stakes story arcs for Rick and his fellow survivors. In the season 4 finale, the splintered group of prison survivors (along with a few new acquaintances) saw their happy reunion turn sour as they were attacked and imprisoned in the would-be safe haven called Terminus.

As the season 5 trailer reveals, however, the group won’t be in confinement too long. After striking a tenuous agreement with the leader of Terminus, it seems both Rick’s group and a Terminus crew combine as a unit, with the grand mission of going to Washington D.C. to help Dr. Eugene Porter hopefully cure the zombie plague. Along the way, the usual suspicion, distrust, savagery and tragic loss all seemingly occur.

In the midst of all this hope vs doom, there are the other things that fans tend to be concerned about – namely love and relationships amongst the survivors. In our Comic-Con interviews with The Walking Dead cast, we talked two of the most popular characters – Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) – about where they’re headed in season 5, and whether or not they’re headed there together (like, together together).

Andrew Lincoln addressed where Rick is in the aftermath of his violent actions in the S4 finale, and his decisive statement to the rest of the group that the Terminus gang is “screwing with the wrong people”:

Fans have been weighing in with their thoughts about the new Walking Dead season 5 trailer that debuted at Comic-Con in San Diego, but what about the cast and producers themselves? What do they have to say about it? After the awesome experience of watching them watch it on a monitor while backstage at their panel, I asked Team Walking Dead their thoughts later when they stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studio at the convention, and now you can hear the entire conversation by clicking on the audio player icon below.

Joining us were none other than cast members Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, and Michael Cudlitz, along with executive producer Scott M. Gimple and co-executive producer Denise Huth. So what do they make of the clip, in which, according to Cudlitz, “it certainly looks like we’re heading to DC” to find a cure for the zombie outbreak? It seems the cast has been getting a kick listening to fans hypothesize as to what it all means. “The theories are fantastic,” says Gurira.

This weekend, the cast and crew of AMC’s massive zombie hit The Walking Dead shambled through Hall H and then made their way to a press room where ComicBook.com was among those who had a chance to talk with them.

Executive Producers Robert Kirkman and David Alpert had two interesting, but very different, answers for the fairly basic question of what was the biggest challenge for Season Five, and before we delve too deep into the roundtable interviews, it seemed worth a peek behind the curtain at their thinking…

Robert Kirkman: Story-wise, every season is a big challenge. This is a show about escalation and evolution and how these characters are changing and we always want to top ourselves. So there’s a lot of work that’s done analyzing what we’ve done before and where we’re going to go next and how we’re going to make it better, cooler, fantastic.

So that’s something that we put a tremendous amount of effort into but going into Season Five, to a certain extent we’re a well-oiled machine. We’ve been using the same crew, we’ve been using the same people, we’ve got great directors coming back, we’ve got Greg Nicotero doing our premiere and I feel like — you guys know better than I do — but we’re just rocking and rolling and we’re just a great unit that’s moving along at a great pace and that things are going really well. As far as challenge wise, I don’t think Season Five has been daunting in any way, although we are doing some bigger things and some complicated things. That has been somewhat taxing.

During The Walking Dead‘s Comic Con roundtables, showrunner Scott Gimple talked a bit about trying to keep the audience in suspense and about following the comic book source material for inspiration in the show’s upcoming fifth season.

He also talked about killing characters, giving notice to the cast and the unique challenges of running a show where “no one is safe.”

ComicBook.com was there. Here’s what he had to say…

Can you give a sense of how many episodes we’re seeing in the season five trailer?

Scott Gimple: No. I always wonder what — especially, I’ve been through that trailer a million times and I’ve already been freaked out once about something I might have missed, forest for the trees. I don’t want to spill becuase I think people will be able to have their checklist. But I’ll say a bunch.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Judith was reunited with Rick…

Gimple: That could have been Judith. I couldn’t identify that baby in a lineup.

As you ended the last season and started putting together this one, how do you decide to put the show’s spin on the comics?

Gimple: I read the comic before I watched the show, I watched the show before I worked on the show, I came at it as a fan. So it was easy. I was objective before; I just read it to read it and there was stuff I’d be like, “Oh, that was amazing.”

Telltale’s The Walking Dead series will continue into a third season. The studio’s co-founder Kevin Bruner confirmed the news during the Skybound Entertainment panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014.

Telltale remained vague on many of the details of the next season, including a release window. Considering that the adventure game studio has both Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones slated for 2014, it’s a safe bet that TWD Season 3 won’t start until 2015. Telltale also didn’t comment on whether or not Clementine would come back as the main character.

SAN DIEGO – It wasn’t the best of Comic-Con’s, but it certainly wasn’t the worst.  We didn’t find out everything we wanted to know about “Doctor Strange” or “Justice League” and favorites such as “Doctor Who” and “Mockingjay” didn’t hold panels, but when you get over two minutes of amazing “Avengers: Age of Ultron” footage it sort of makes up for it. 

Granted, some big names might have been missing from panels for “Game of Thrones” or “The Walking Dead,” but they still packed Hall H and entertained the masses. Is there room for more TV shows in the main hall?  Sure, but probably only if you expand Sunday’s programming.  This year the organizers spread out the best movie panels and there were significantly fewer dead blocks of time for smaller movies than in previous years.  And special movies such as “The Boxtrolls” benefited with a captive and entertained audience who were mostly waiting for Marvel Studios’ evening circus. 

That being said, Comic-Con’s wristband system got mixed reviews, the ambush marketing was as annoying as ever and you have to be incredibly patient to survive the 130,000 people on hand.  With that in mind, the HitFix staff selected some of the best and worst moments from the four-day pop culture fest. You can find our thoughts in the embedded story gallery below.

the-walking-dead-escape-logoIn February, Skybound announced that Ultimate Fighting Championship co-founder David Isaacs would become President of Skybound EXP, the entertainment company’s live events and experiential marketing subsidiary. Skybound publishes comic books through Image Comics and includes all of Robert Kirkman’s (‘The Walking Dead’) work.

Skybound’s extremely popular ‘The Walking Dead Escape’ – an immersive zombie obstacle course experience for diehard ‘Dead’ fans – is now in its third year at San Diego Comic-Con. For more on the history of the experience and what’s new for this year, we spoke with Isaacs, who is managing the execution for the first time:

LR: Why have you and AMC created this experience at Comic-Con each year? How popular has it been?  

David Isaacs: We created The Walking Dead Escape so that our fans could go from reading (the comic and novels), watching (the TV series) and playing (the videogame) The Walking Dead, to actually being immersed in the world of The Walking Dead.  It takes the theoretical question “What would I do in a Zombie apocalypse?” and puts it to the test.  It’s been very popular it’s first two years at Comic-Con – in fact it was voted favorite event of the Con – that’s why we are coming back for year three!

LR: How do you think this gives fans a way to experience ‘The Walking Dead’ in a unique way?

Isaacs: When you go through ‘The Walking Dead Escape,’ you are immersed in our world.  You don’t always have time to think – you have to react and then keep going to survive.

After finishing a play-through of Telltale’s penultimate episode in The Walking Dead Season Two, I went back over my reviews of the other three episodes to see what my reactions, reservations and predictions were for the directions of this Clementine-centric series.

Reviewing episodic games is never all that easy, because as a player you’re deliberately being kept in the dark about where the story is going. What feels like a reasonable episode in isolation can turn into an amazing one in retrospect. Likewise, what seems decent at first can easily lose significance if the narrative fizzles out (we’ve all seen TV shows where this has happened, I’m sure.)

the walking dead s2 amid the ruins (2)

I may be a little down on this Season, but Telltale still does the best expressions.

This review will have spoilers for prior episodes in this season, but will try to steer clear of any overly specific plot details for Amid the Ruins. It’s been out a short while now, but it still seems a bit soon to be tossing out references to character deaths or other important events from episode 4.

So, looking back through my thoughts on episodes one to three, I’ve been pretty consistent in praising how Telltale has managed to make playing a twelve (I think?) year old girl in a zombie apocalypse seem perfectly natural. It would’ve been incredibly easy to make a horrible mess of Clementine’s character, but instead she’s been written with believable dialogue and an intriguing narrative arc.

SAN DIEGO — Every year, legions of fans shuffle to San Diego Comic-Con to see anything “The Walking Dead” related, but this installment of the convention proved the liveliest yet for fans of the AMC zombie drama.

Not only did it boast the release of the most spoiler-heavy trailer in the show’s history, but AMC also took over parts of the California city’s downtown with a mock-up of a BBQ at Terminus — home to a band of possible cannibals who have Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company in their clutches when season 5 opens this October.

Select outlets, including the Daily News, also got the opportunity to sit down with the cast and producers to gnaw even more on the show’s upcoming season.

“This is a very dangerous, very different group of people,” said creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman, during the start of the round table session of our favorite survivors.

Emily Kinney (Beth), producer Gail Anne Hurd and Norman Reedus (Darryl) were the first trio on the dock.

Hurd started off by promising the new season will delve into the apparent abduction of Beth at the end of last season. “She is out there … questions of how she got where she is will be answered,” said Hurd. Read more... (1112 words, 10 images, estimated 4:27 mins reading time)

Mark your calendars! “The Walking Dead” Season 5 will premiere on AMC on Sunday, Oct. 12.

Zombie lovers took over San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 25, for the highly anticipated panel for AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Steven Yeun (Glenn), Lauren Cohan (Maggie), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Melissa McBride (Carol), Chad Coleman (Tyreese) and Michael Cudlitz (Abraham) joined executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert and Greg Nicotero on stage to tease Season 5, which debuts in October, and to release the first official trailer video. 

Watch the video below:

Check out our breakdown of the video:

- The trailer kicks off with Rick’s final line from the Season 4 finale: “They’re screwing with the wrong people.”

- Abraham Ford appears to be using some skills he learned in the military. He yells “MOVE” as the train car get hit with smoke bombs. Gareth enters with others in gas masks.

- “I just hope you understand that we didn’t want to hurt you,” Gareth, the Terminus leader tells Rick’s group. 

- Despite how well armed the people at Terminus are, Rick and his group of survivors are not going down without a fight. The trailer shows the group running and attempting to fight back after leaving the train car.

- A headless person standing up may or may not make an appearance around the 0:15 second mark.

Last season, The Walking Dead started with a shot of Rick Grimes hoeing in the makeshift farm that his group had set-up. This season will be about anything but farming.

That’s according to the show’s executive producer who, flanked by castmembers Andrew Lincoln and Michael Cudlitz, spoke to TVLine at San Diego’s Comic-Con this past weekend.

“I remember last season talking to Robert Kirkman, and I said ‘okay… beginning of season four, Rick is hoeing,” EP Scott M. Gimple said. “So season five, I would say is the anti-hoeing. It is just the opposite. The first six minutes are among the most intense minutes of The Walking Dead period. Let alone at the beginning of an episode. It gets very intense, very quick. Very terrifying, very quick.”

Gimple said that over the course of the season, the show rotates between “electric and acoustic sets” referencing that the show will continue to mix intense action with thoughtful storyline and character development.

Andrew Lincoln talked about how he will be back with the majority of the cast this season as Rick was isolated last season with Michonne and Carl.

“It does feel like the band is back together to a degree,” Grimes said. “It does feel thrilling to be the leader. A man who is in no doubt about his decision-making and what he is capable of doing to keep his family alive.”

The actress seen slapping Beth while dressed as a police officer in the new trailer for The Walking Dead season 5 has been identified as Christine Woods.

Woods is known for her roles in the television series Hello Ladies, Go On, Perfect Couples, and FlashForward.

Executive producer Gail Anne Hurd confirmed that the woman is Woods, reported the blog Dread Central.

There were no concrete details given about the situation that Beth finds herself in, which appears from the footage in the trailer to be a hostage type-situation (the part with Beth starts at 2:38).

Beth is at a hospital but it’s unclear whether the people who kidnapped her and took her there are evil or good. Some are speculating that the hospital is part of the Alexandria Safe Zone, an area that is part of the comic series.

Many fans are wondering about Beth, and Hurd promised answers at Comic-Con, reported the NY Daily News.

She is out there … questions of how she got where she is will be answered,” said Hurd. 

Emily Kinney said that she’d like to see Darryl and Beth reunited and develop their relationship further, possibly into a romantic one.

“I hope so,” said the actress.

“I think they definitely have a certain connection that has grown from surviving together. They have gotten to know each other on a different level that’s really special, whether its friendship or something else. It’s a deeper relationship.”

In May, it was made public that Seth Gilliam (“The Wire”) had been added to the cast of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” joining other “The Wire” alumni, Chad Coleman (who plays Tyreese) and Lawrence Gilliard Jr (who plays Bob)..

At the time, there was no word on what character Gilliam will play exactly, leaving us all to speculate on just what this mystery role might be.

Speculate no more because, over the weekend, during the series’ Comic-Con panel in San Diego, show creator Robert Kirkman revealed that Gilliam will play Father Gabriel in Season 5 of “The Walking Dead.” 

According to the “Walking Dead” Wiki, Father Gabriel is Gabriel Stokes who was pastor at a remote church, in a remote community, called Father Gabriel’s Church. It is the location where some of the story for next season will take place, as the crew makes their journey to Washington D.C. to find a cure for the disease, and put an end to zombies once and for all, as Kirkman also revealed at Comic-Con.

In the comics, when the undead epidemic swept the world, Father Gabriel claimed he took refuge in his church, and later revealed, when pressed by Rick of his true intentions, that he was a coward and turned away all living survivors who sought refuge within its walls, and listened from inside as they all were killed or turned into zombies. The Church ends up being the location of a short stay for Rick’s group. Gabriel leads the group there after meeting them on the road. The Church is also used as cover when during a confrontation between the survivors (Rick and his crew) and their hunters. The group eventually leaves the Church to continue their journey to Washington, D.C., once their hunters are killed.
