This may contain some minor spoilers if you haven’t seen season 4.
Last year when AMC announced that The Walking Dead was renewed for a 5th season, we could not do anything else than prepare for a long and painful wait for the continuance of the epic zombie apocalypse. Since its debut in 2010, The Walking Dead has done what no one would’ve dreamed of. A zombie series becoming one of the most popular TV-series. The mid season premiere of season 4 had amazingly 15.8 million viewers, and continued to be the number one show on television among adults between 18 and 49. “Thanks to the fans, who have been so supportive of this show in so many ways. We share your passion for this world,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president, back then when he was asked about the high rankings.
From the forth season we remember The Governor and his followers attacking the prison, where Rick and the rest of the group had been residing. Fences were destroyed, and buildings were blown to pieces. In the last half of the season we followed the survivors on their way towards Terminus, the so-called sanctuary. The last we remember was Rick and his group learning that Termius was nothing but a trap. How will they get away? And will they finally get to Washington to find the cure? We simply can’t wait to see what happens next, when episode 1 of season 5 premieres October 12th, 2014.
