Season 4 of The Walking Dead ended with most of our survivors — Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun), Tara Chambler (Alanna Masterson), Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz), Dr. Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt), Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos), Bob Stookey (Larry Gilliard Jr.), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), and Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) — trapped in a train car at Terminus, but if Rick’s final line of the season is any indication this group isn’t going to stay locked up for long. “They’re screwing with the wrong people,” Rick declared, and we couldn’t agree more.
Seeing as how almost everyone, with the exception of Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride),
Tyreese (Chad Coleman), baby Judith, and Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) is at Terminus now, we know at least part of Season 5 will be set there, but will any other locations be featured in the new season?
Speaking about TWD Season 5 on the March 30 episode of Talking Dead, showrunner Scott Gimple revealed, “We’re really excited about it. The writers are working very hard.” He also dropped a hint that we’re in for some geographical changes, noting, “We’re looking at all the new places we’re going. It’s going to be an incredible season. It’s going to be completely different from this year.”
Scott also referred to Season 5A as a “nuclear weapon” of sorts, and in an interview with TV Guide comic book creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman noted that the fifth season won’t be as stationary as seasons past. “Season 5 will probably have more distinctive individual locations than we've had on the show thus far,” he declared. “There will be a lot of different places we explore in Season 5.”
In the comics we know that Rick’s group eventually joins Abraham and his crew on the road to Washington D.C. while making stops along the way, and based on Robert’s answer above we have a hunch that this could be true in Season 5 of TWD as well.
Do you think we could see several different locations in Season 5, or is it better for our group to be stationary at this point? Feel free to share your thoughts and theories below!
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October 2014 on AMC.
