On Thursday, April 3 Wetpaint Entertainment posted spoilers for the upcoming fifth season of "The Walking Dead," the AMC drama that follows survivors of the walker outbreak as they search for shelter. The new sixteen episode season is scheduled to air in October.
The new season will begin filming outside Atlanta in the first week of May, with actors arriving in the area in the final week of April. Filming one episode takes one week, and filming is expected to continue until the fall. The first episode will be filmed at a train depot, the location of Terminus in the series.
Christian Serratos (Rosita Espinosa), Andrew J. West (Gareth) and Alanna Masterson (Tara) have all been upgraded to series regulars for the new season. All three characters were introduced in season four. New cast members Michael Cudlitz (Abraham Ford) and Josh McDermitt (Eugene Porter) are also expected to appear in the new season.
Comic book creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman recently teased that Terminus is "scarier" than Woodbury, the settlement the group found in season three. The residents are "a lot more dangerous" and fans will find out exactly what is going on at Terminus in the season five premiere.
There is speculation that the residents of Terminus are the cannibals from the comic book series, although Kirkman has mentioned that some of the theories are true and others are way off. The prison survivors stumbled upon a room full of candles, blood and words written in the wall like "never trust," and then they were locked up in a train car.
Current show runner Scott M. Gimple revealed that the series changed direction every eight episodes to keep fans guessing. The new season will feature Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) very heavily, unlike season four when the episodes focused on individual characters. The story of Carol, Tyreese and Judith will also move in a new direction and they may not be heading to Terminus. Beth's story will also be explained, but her fate will be drawn out.
