About the Show

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on Sunday, October 12 at 9/8c on AMC. As in previous seasons, the series’ fifth season of 16 episodes will air in two-parts, with the first eight hours kicking off October 12 and the final eight episodes returning February 2015.

After the tragic events of the mid-season finale -- as well as losing the possibility of a cure in Washington, DC -- Rick Grimes' band of survivors find themselves on the road, surviving day to day and trying to hold on to their shredded humanity and dwindling hope.

Stripped of security and without a direction for the future, some of the group near their breaking point, some find themselves hardened and cold and some just try to grasp on to what little they have left.

Though they are still breathing, the line between Rick's group and the dead is starting to blur.

Could there be anything at this point that brings them back to life?
