After a myriad of teasers and sneaks peeks released over the last few days, we now happily bring you a different form of intel about The Walking Dead Season 5 — more specifically the premiere, which is scheduled to bow on October 12 at 9 p.m. ET. Want to know what the highly-anticipated season opener is called? Read on to find out!


Per a new batch of spoilers from TVLine, Season 5, Episode 1 is called “No Sanctuary.” As you may recall, Terminus was referred to as a “sanctuary” of sorts during Season 4 (remember those creepy radio announcements?) but the premiere’s moniker makes it clear that this place is most definitely not a safe haven. You know, if the termites trapping Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his crew in a train car didn’t drive that point home already.

Want more hints that Terminus is pretty much the worst sanctuary ever? Rick threatens to kill Terminus leader Gareth in this sneak peek as Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) are bound and gagged.

This teaser has gas masks, sketchy surgery, and haunting screams, and we still don’t know what (or who?) Mary was cooking on that grill in the Season 4 finale. However, while we may be in the dark about Terminus now, we’re expecting to get “a ton” of info in “No Sanctuary.” As comic book creator Robert Kirkman recently explained, “By minute two or three of our season premiere, I think the vast majority of our questions have been answered.” But in true TWD fashion, it’s not that simple. He continued, “and five or six more [will] have been presented, so you’re very much going to be invested, well-informed, and ready for the ride that we’re going to take you on.”
