Season 1 of The Walking Dead was spent in and around downtown Atlanta, Season 2 was largely concentrated at Hershel Greene’s (Scott Wilson) farm, and portions of Seasons 3 and 4 were spent at the abandoned prison, but when The Governor (David Morrissey) went on the attack in the Season 4 midseason finale, he destroyed the prison and sent our group fleeing in several different directions.
By the end of Season 4, most of our survivors were trapped at Terminus in that train car, but we don’t expect the gang to stay in that confined space for long. In fact, AMCTV.com spoke with TWD co-executive producer Denise Huth recently, and Denise gave us a hint at what locales we’ll be seeing once Season 5 kicks off in October.
“We’re out of the prison and we’re on the road; and we will see a little more of Terminus,” she began. Although she doesn’t say it outright, this more or less confirms that our group will get out of that darn train car. But just how much more of Terminus will they see? Will the Termites try and kill them because they opened fire in the season finale, or will the two groups reach some kind of understanding? Looks like we’ll have to wait and see!
Denise went on to say, “The [survivors] don’t have a space to get back to, like the prison, so this year will be really brand new, which is exciting.” We’re just guessing at this point, but we think our group will eventually leave Terminus and hit the road, possibly en route to Washington D.C. to please Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) and keep his search for a cure alive. Again, we’ll just have to hang tight and see what showrunner Scott Gimple and his creative team come up with.
Would you like to see Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang “on the road,” or would you rather see them in one or two locations? Weigh in below!
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October 2014 on AMC.
