With The Walking Dead returning for the second half of season 5 this Sunday, February 8th, AMC has released a new trailer filled with critical praise. We recently got a look at the first two minutes of the premiere episode, “What Happened and What’s Going On”, and a set of intense portraits for some of the characters that survived the tragic events of the midseason finale.
The new trailer teases a glimpse at what’s ahead for the band of survivors now that the possibility finding a cure in Washington, DC is off the table. I got burnt out on the relentlessly bleak nature of the series after the 4th season and had to take a break, but according to Dave’s weekly reviews The Walking Dead has been on an upswing this season, so hopefully the remaining 8 episodes can maintain that quality.
Here’s the official synopsis for the last 8 episodes of 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. T
hough 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?
