'The Walking Dead' Season 5 AMC Release Date, Watch First Four Minutes of New Episode Here (VIDEO)
"The Walking Dead" Season 5 premieres tonight, October 12th on AMC. If you can't wait however, they have posted the first four minutes of the premiere episode tonight on their Facebook page, which you can watch HERE.
The series stars Andrew Lincoln, Steven Yeun, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira, and Chad L. Coleman.
Actress Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Greene, shared with EW about how Maggie has changed through the past few seasons as a result of the zombie plague. "I feel like in the beginning we always knew that Maggie was a physically strong person," Cohan said. "She's a farm girl. She would have been doing work on the farm. But where we've gotten to by season 5 now is that she is so dependent on that physical strength. Like that's all she is, almost. They live a pretty barbaric life. She's definitely still a sensitive vulnerable person, but I feel like we're kind of all animals now."
The worst part for Kirkman and Gimple is keeping the cast members in the dark. "You can't tell 'em," says Kirkman. "Because we change our minds all the time. And that's the other really bad thing about it. We can't really give them that much warning because there's always a chance that we'll get into actually writing the scripts after we plan things out and we're like, 'Nope, that character's living.' Which has happened many times. So we don't want to have many false news giving situations."
"You'll see us take some big leaps with the characters and the set pieces," executive producer Gale Ann Hurd said during the panel.
Cast member Norman Reedus, who plays the role of Daryl Dixon revealed some spoilers on what fans can expect in Season 5 of the hit TV show.
"These scripts are the best scripts so far, and I'm really just excited to be back at it. There are a lot of characters right now, so there are a lot of really different personalities on set. And it's super interesting, everyone's really bringing it. It's going great. It's so dynamic because it's so fast-paced and so complicated. It's great to be back," Reedus told Entertainment Weekly.
Reedus also revealed that Rick will be back next season. Also, Executive producer Scott M. Gimple will be returning for season 5. Reedus shares that he thinks that Gimple has the rest of the series planned out but of course will keep it under wraps. Sometimes you can tell in series if the writers are winging it from show to show or season to season or if they have the full story mapped out from the beginning.
