AMC recently released a trailer for the mid-season premiere of Season 5, which is set to air on February 8, 2015.
Set to pretty awesome music, the teaser shows the gang in the woods, wandering around together in the murky fog and armed against an unseen threat, presumable the usual: more walkers. No reveal of who the main threat will be in this second half leaves the plot mysterious and up for grabs.
Some of the key characters that stood out:
Maggie: Seems to be over Beth’s dead, following Rick’s lead
Abraham: Seems to have his shit back together again
Carol: All patched up from the hospital
Rick’s beard: Growing as strong and powerful as ever (though recent pictures of Andrew Lincoln on the red carpet show a clean shaven face, so only time will tell)
What do you guys expect from the rest of Season 5? Who will the new villains be? How long exactly will Rick’s beard keep growing? Just know that no matter what, surviving together is “all that matters”.
The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday, February 8 on AMC.
