With less than six weeks until the return of The Walking Dead, we're getting nearly daily content releases from AMC. Today, we have ten brand new promotional photos that feature the main Season 5 cast. We've also included our gallery of previously released photos and we'll likely have cast portraits and behind-the-scenes photos before the first episode airs.
The Walking Dead Season 5 will premiere in the US on October 12th, at 9:00pm ET/PT. Similar to past seasons, there are a total of sixteen episodes that will be split into two parts. While specific air dates have not been announced for the second set of eight episodes, AMC has confirmed that the season will resume in February, 2015.
Talking Dead will also make its return on October 12th and our international readers will be happy to know that Fox International Channels is planning to air The Walking Dead Season 5 in over 125 markets within 24 hours of the US broadcast.
