The Walking Dead Season 5

So The Walking Dead season 4 is over – what’s next? Just three days after the season finale, AMC has already released its first promotional poster for season 5.

It features a brooding, crouching Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), gun in hand and lit by beams of light shining through a stained glass window. High above him is imprinted the new motto of our favourite zombie apocalypse survivors: “Survive”. Considering what happened at the end of season 4 (no spoilers here!), Rick and co are going to need lots of that steely spirit.

It’s little wonder that AMC is in such a hurry to promote the new season. The season four finale brought in 15.7 million viewers – a season finale record for the show, and the second highest number of viewers during the season.

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Alanna Masterson (Tara), Christian Serratos (Rosita) and Andrew J.West (Gareth) have all been upgraded to series regulars for the fifth season.
