SDCC '14 The Walking Dead: First Look at Season 5

Posted by The Dace Man Friday, July 25, 2014
News and Rumors about The Walking Dead Season 5 Comic Con CoverageWhat is up Fanboys and Fangirls? Chris "The Dace Man" Dace is back again, patrolling the Interwebs to get you the latest updates from this year's San Diego Comic Con. Earlier this afternoon AMC's The Walking Dead gathered its stars and producers in a panel hosted by the one and only Chris Hardwick (AMC's Talking Dead and Comedy Central's @Midnight). They talked about the season 4 finale and what lies on the horizon for the survivors we've come to love and watch each year! Here are the highlights that came out of the panel. Enjoy!
  • Chris Hardwick teases the fans that he visited the set 4 weeks prior to Comic Con and says right out of the gate the series will be intense, more so than it has ever been.
  • Scott Gimple (showrunner), Robert Kirkman (creator) and Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, and Greg Nicotero (executive producers) were present and there to kick off the panel with Hardwick.
  • They go on to tell the fans in attendance this season will cover "who the survivors have become after doing the unthinkable to stay alive," and the history of Terminus will be explained.
  • Kirkman goes on to explain the TV series will start to sync back up with the major comic events.
  • The panel says season 5 will see more suburban/urban areas than the previous seasons. 
  • The Wire's Seth Gilliam will join the cast of The Walking Dead this season as Gabriel Stokes. 
  • Nicotero has been experimenting with ways to make the walkers look different and expand the world of walkers in season 5.
