AMC’s The Walking Dead is a perennial hit for the network, and remains one of the most talked-about shows on television year after year. Season six, which premieres Sunday, October 11th at 9pm, promises to be more gut-wrenching and shocking than ever, but if you need a bit of a refresher on the events of season five, we’ve got you covered.
We’ve put together this video recap of season five of The Walking Dead to get you caught up on all the new faces, narrow escapes, and gruesome deaths that befell Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company on their long march to Alexandria. If you’re up to date on your Walking Dead watching and just need a quick recap, you’re in the right place; if you’re still way behind then be warned: spoilers follow.
Here’s the official logline for Season 6 of AMC’s The Walking Dead:
Season six starts with Alexandria’s safety shattered by multiple threats. To make it, the people of Alexandria will need to catch up with our survivors’ hardness while many of Rick’s people will need to take a step back from the violence and pragmatism they’ve needed to embrace. These reversals won’t happen easily, or without conflict. But now Rick’s group is fighting for something more than survival. They’re fighting for their home, and they will defend that at any cost, against any threat, even if that threat comes from within.
