Not only were we gifted with new cast photos from Season 5 of The Walking Dead today, but we were also given a sneak peek at the premiere episode. Returning to AMC on Sunday, October 12, this is one of the most highly anticipated seasons of The Walking Dead based on where we last left our group. You can find the sneak peek images after the break.
Entitled “No Sanctuary,” the episode name speaks for itself. Our heroes definitely did not find what they were hoping for, and Rick is pissed as haeeelll. Based on what we’ve seen from the trailers, and now the photos below, the group manages to escape their conundrum, but are now playing a game of cat and mouse. There is nothing in these images that really give anything else about the season premiere away, but c’mon, don’t tell me that wasn’t expected. How they are able to is the realy question, which we’ll find out in less than a month.

Here is the official plot synopsis for Season 5 of The Walking Dead, courtesy of AMC:
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?
