Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang have struggled through tough times before, but it really won’t be easy keeping morale high after what when down during the first eight episodes of The Walking Dead season 5. Their efforts to build a stable life in one location haven’t worked out, but at least they still had something important to fight for for a while. Not so anymore. Now the group is on the move with just one goal in mind – staying alive.
AMC just released a brand new The Walking Dead trailer to pave the way towards the show’s big return on Sunday, February 8th at 9pm ET/PT on AMC. It’s a tense and rather violent 30-second piece that suggests Rick is focused on doing whatever it takes to make it through this nightmare so that the group can stop trying to survive and truly live again. Hit the jump to check it out.
Here’s the synopsis of what’s to come in the second half of The Walking Dead season 5:
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?
