The wait for a new episode of The Walking Dead continues, though we get closer to the Season 5 premiere of TWD with each passing day. Just think about it this way, the Season 4 finale aired seven weeks ago, and the once six month hiatus has already been reduced to a more manageable five months and counting.
Plus, the cast has been back on set for over a week now, so at least we’re getting new info every now and then, like this first shot of Season 5, which shows Rick opening the Terminus train car.
It may be Sunday, May 18, but despite how ready we are to devour a new episode of The Walking Dead, we regret to inform you that the AMC hit concluded it’s fourth season ended several weeks ago on Sunday, March 30, with a heart-stopping ep that ended with quite the cliffhanger. Most of you were probably already aware of the fact that there’s no new episode of TWD tonight, but we figured we’d remind you just in case.
If you missed the March 30 finale, here’s the Reader’s Digest version: Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) was confronted by Joe (Jeff Kober) and his band of misfits, who threatened to rape and kill Carl Grimes(Chandler Riggs). That didn’t sit well with Papa G so he went all primal and bit Joe’s neck, killing him instantly. Then Rick, Carl, Michonne (Danai Gurira), and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) got to Terminus but knew something was up pretty quickly. After a tense standoff, the foursome was herded into a train car marked “A” where they were reunited with 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). Rick’s hopeful last words were, “They screwed with the wrong people.”
Now for some good and bad news. The bad news is that Season 5 of the hit show isn’t scheduled to debut until October 2014. We don’t have a specific date to give you just yet, but based on the schedule from years past, our money is on Sunday, October 14, for TWD’s long-awaited Season 5 kick off.
But wait, we promised you some good news, right? The good news is that while we might have several months to wait before we can catch a brand-new hour of TWD, we already have tons of scoop on Season 5.
