AMC has released the first official The Walking Dead Season 5 poster, which boasts the ominous tagline “Hunt or Be Hunted.” Given that this new season may or may not feature a showdown between Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) gang and a group of people that may or may not be cannibals, the moniker seems appropriate. Despite the fact that The Walking Dead airs on a cable network, it stands as the most watched drama series on all of television in the coveted 18-49 demo, which is kind of a big deal. While the actual quality of the show varies depending on who you talk to, there’s no denying that a lot of people are watching. Will the ratings rise continue in Season 5 or will the series finally plateau?
