Get Your First Look at Rick in the Season 5 Premiere of THE WALKING DEAD

You didn’t think we were going to leave you basic cable lovers hanging during broadcast television’s upfront week, did you? Come on, you should know us better than that! That’s why today we have your first look at (wait for it) Season 5 of The Walking Dead. Squee!

Yes, the zombie drama is coming back this fall. Feast your eyes on this nice close-up of Rick looking cool as shit in the first episode of the season:

The show has just started principle photography in Atlanta, with the premiere set for October.

Dedicated viewers (I.E. all of you) will remember last season took the gang on a hell of a ride after everyone was forced to separate following The Governor’s attack on the prison. After multiple episodes of emotional pitfalls (“Flowers” anybody?), Rick, Carl and the rest of the group finally made it to Terminus just in time to be placed inside a train car until the citizens of the “refuge” could decide what to do with them.

Is this where we finally meet the cannibals of the comics? There’s so much to ponder!

The series went out on a high note last season with a chart-setting 15.7 million viewers, and 10.2 million in the coveted 18-49 demo. America loves its zombies and so far, it looks everyone’s going to have a lot more to love come October.

What are you most looking forward to going into next season of The Walking Dead?

    Principal photography. Not principle.

    I’m most looking forward to seeing pissed off BAD ASS Rick. I’m tired of emotionally unstable Rick. And based off of his closing comments I think the switch has been flipped. People are gonna bleed very soon.

    I hope that they have a season set in Winter, that would be neat.  By the look of Rick’s coat, it might not be far off!!

      Tommy, the first half of next season is being shot during the summer so it won’t be during Octobers episodes. Maybe during February’s though.

      I’ve wondered that before, especially with the way all the seasons are used in the comics. The problem would be filming walker scenes. Shooting can take hours, and unless the walkers already happened to be wearing heavy coats and long johns, they would get sick. It could be done but it’s a heavy liability.

    *sigh*…another season of hoping they don’t kill off the baby…

    Look at the flowers Terminus. Just look at the flowers.
