AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 5 returns in just a few weeks and two new trailers will tide you over until then. Watch them below!
There’s a common theme to the trailers – survival. After the harrowing and tragic end to the first half of Season 5, life seems hopeless for our characters.
Here’s the official synopsis for the second half:
“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.”
Between character deaths and familiar plots, the show is growing complacent. Without tackling larger issues, the show as a whole is beginning to feel a little stale. We’re hoping that some life can get breathed into it soon – no pun intended.
The Walking Dead returns February 8th and has already been picked up for a sixth season.
