'Walking Dead' season 5 trailer, season premiere date revealed by AMC

"Walking Dead" season 5 trailer time has finally arrived. AMC used Comic-Con 2014 to announce the season premiere date for "The Walking Dead" and gave fans what they have been waiting for with the elongated trailer. According to a report from Entertainment Weekly on Friday (July 25), AMC will air the first new episode of the show on Sunday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. It will be a long wait for fans that have tried hard to be patient since the last season finale of the show.

AMC president Charlie Collier made a long statement about what's to come on the show as well. He stated, "From the opening tease in the premiere onward, season 5 is without question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted. In the zombie apocalypse, event television is alive and well, and I am proud to acknowledge that this uniquely talented writing staff, production team, and cast have once again raised the bar (and the crossbow).”

There have been a lot of rumors and spoilers discussed by fans on the internet since most of the main characters were captured at Terminus at the end of season 4. There were also a lot of questions about whether Beth had survived after she was presumably kidnapped prior to that moment. Some questions do get answered in the "Walking Dead" season 5 trailer, but there are many more added to the pile in what appears to be an action-packed session for the main characters.

The AMC web site reveals that past episodes of "The Walking Dead" will be available through On Demand this fall. Currently they are only available through download or purchase, with the producers and AMC taking full advantage of viewers that will do just about anything to get caught up. With the revelation of the new footage for the season premiere, it is likely to spark even more interest among fans of the show.
