Based on the graphic novel series by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead follows a group of people, led by deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes, who are attempting to survive after an outbreak has led to the rise of the undead (known colloquially as walkers).

The show’s 16 episode fifth season, which will once again be aired in two parts, is expected to pick up from the season four finale which saw Rick and co outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate. Speaking at SDCC last month, AMC President Charlie Collier said: “From the opening tease in the premiere onward, season 5 is without question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted.”
