Spoilers for Season 5 of "The Walking Dead" Revealed by Writer Robert Kirkman
Season 4 of AMC's hit show "The Walking Dead" left fans facing major cliffhangers. The last time we saw Rick and crew, the group of post-zombie-apocalyptic survivors were reunited at last after spending the majority of the season separated from each other. However, happiness was not to be; Terminus, their supposed safe place, is predictably not safe at all, and the group is captured upon arrival.
Robert Kirkman, one of the comic masterminds behind "The Walking Dead," promised that season 5 will be "the best season yet." Previous seasons of the show have picked up after an eight month gap, wherein we do not see the events that took place but instead start off in a new place. This season will pick up right in the thick of the mess that Rick and the rest of the survivors were left in at the close of the season finale.
Fans (particularly those we are also readers of "The Walking Dead" comic books) have been dead set on the idea that Terminus is actually a community of cannibals, and Kirkman's comment that fans have "a little bit of lead on" the possible events of season 5 seem to confirm this theory. The theory was also supported by the pile of seemingly human bones that the camera focused on in the season finale.
For those who are concerned about Rick, Kirkman had this to say about the show's leading man: "I think that he's definitely a more capable Rick and a more prepared Rick, and while the situation might actually be far more dire and deadly and dangerous, he's possibly going to handle it much better. I think we'll see a very different way of handling conflict this season."
Season 5 of "The Walking Dead" premieres on AMC in October.
