"The Walking Dead" season 5 premiere is almost here – just over a month away – and on Tuesday, Sept. 2, AMC released the official poster with the new tag line. What comes next for the survivors? What will they have to do to make it out of that train car alive?

Well, they're going to have to keep on surviving, and the new tagline for "The Walking Dead" season 5 is "Hunt or Be Hunted," as shown on the official poster, which you can check out to the left. The key art also shows Rick (Andrew Lincoln), armed, hiding in bushes, which is nothing new for him, even given how season 4 ended.

When season 4 ended, Rick, Michonne, Daryl and Carl discovered that Terminus wasn't the safe haven that everyone had hoped it would be once Rick spotted some familiar items among the people there, and they were corralled into a train car, only to find that Maggie, Glenn, Bob, Sasha, Abraham, Rosita, Eugene and Tara were already there, having discovered the same thing.

All signs seem to be pointing towards cannibalism, but this group can handle it, because as Rick pointed out in the finale's final moments, "They're gonna feel pretty stupid when they find out. …They're screwing with the wrong people." After all, Rick proved in the finale that he doesn't need a weapon to kill a guy.

"The Walking Dead" season 5 premieres Sunday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. on AMC. What do you think of the season 5 poster and tagline?
