Halloween is just around the corner, which means a new season of The Walking Dead is upon us. While the show has gone through a number of creative changes behind the scenes, it appears that current showrunner Scott M. Gimple is poised to eclipse original showrunner Frank Darabont’s length of time in that position (assuming he makes it through Season 5 unscathed), as Gimple has held the role since he took over at the beginning of Season 4. With a new batch of episodes on the horizon, AMC has unveiled a couple of The Walking Dead Season 5 teaser trailers as well as some high-resolution images to tide fans over until the show returns. I bailed on the series midway through Season 3, but it remains one of the highest rated dramas across all networks and TWD fandom is as intense as ever, so I imagine these new teasers and images will be of interest to many.
Take a look at the new The Walking Dead teaser trailers and images after the jump. The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on AMC October 12th.
In addition to returning castmembers Andrew Lincoln, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney, Chad L. Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Lawrence Gilliard Jr, actors Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Alanna Masterson, and Andrew J. West have been promoted to series regulars this year, with The Wire alum Seth Gilliam joining the cast as Father Gabriel Stokes, as all return.
