AMC has revealed its official synopsis for The Walking Dead Season 5. The new outline teases where things will go following the group’s capture and being locked into a rail car in Terminus:
“The Walking Dead Season 4 ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate. The Walking Dead Season 5 picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.
Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them…After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held on to no matter what the cost…Who do they become?”
This new direction and its overtures are almost like The Road, which isn’t a bad thing at all. The new season of “The Walking Dead” hits screens on Sunday, October 12th.
