AMC has been releasing new photos for The Walking Dead Season 5 across various websites, and we’ve complied them together all in one place for easy viewing. The first photo comes via Entertainment Weekly, and it features Daryl Dixon peering through plastic (maybe the type you find hanging down in a slaughter house). Dixon has his crossbow drawn, so he looks like he is expecting trouble.
The second photo comes via IGN, and it features Tyreese and Sasha, who appear to be on the lookout for trouble. Tyreese has a pair of binoculars and Sasha has a rifle in hand. At least, they have been reunited, which is a good sign.
The Walking Dead actors Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) may agree their respective characters function better when they’re trapped at Terminus together as opposed to freely roaming the world apart, but a new set of photos from Season 5 might alter their opinions. Things aren’t looking so great for neither Glenn nor Maggie!
In one snapshot from the upcoming season, Maggie is in a warehouse of some kind with walkers right behind her. She’s heavily armed and her new locale is easily an upgrade from a dark train car, but by no means is she free and clear. One walker is looking for a bite and even though we know Maggie could take him, something about the look on her face tells us there’s more going on here than meets the eye.
The green and white walls in the background seem to indicate that we’re still at Terminus (creepy candle room, anyone?) and Maggie is glaring at something that has piqued her interest outside the frame. Did she discover the truth about whether or not the Termites are cannibals? Is Gareth putting her through some kind of test? Is that gaze directed at her boo, Glenn?
Speaking of Glenn, another photo from Season 5 shows him in a similarly tough situation. Like Maggie, Glenn is facing down several walkers. While one stands directly in front of Glenn, the former pizza delivery dude seems more interested in the undead fella to the left. He looks a bit worried (though we bet he’s glad he’s got that gun in his hands) but more than anything he seems curious about something offscreen.
What’s going on with these two lovebirds? Should we be concerned? Feel free to share your thoughts and theories below!
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on October 12 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
The fifth season of The Walking Dead is set to be more intense than ever, and now fans have been treated to yet another promo, which reveals even more of the action from the new series.
The latest trailer includes footage that shows Gareth saying, “I just hope you understand we didn’t want to hurt you,” before Rick Grimes gets dark, threatening to kill someone and whispering, “No matter what anyone says, no matter what you think, you are not safe.”
Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick, spoke to TVLine about what fans can expect from the upcoming series. “The band is back together,” he said, explaining that Season 5 finds the survivors reunited at Terminus.

“All of these people have had really different journeys to Terminus, and, as a result, they’re different people than they were,” added showrunner, Scott M. Gimple.
“It’s decidedly more intense than coming back to high school after summer vacation.”
And with the season four finale leaving the gang locked inside a train car by a bunch of cannibals, Scott promises that the beginning of the premiere will feature “the most intense six minutes” in Walking Dead history.“’It gets very intense very quick, very terrifying very quick,” he revealed.
Will The Walking Dead fans finally get their zombie baby?
Viewers haven’t seen an undead infant yet, but it’s something that you know The Walking Dead is going to unveil eventually. Unfortunately, there might be a possibility that Maggie will give birth to the zombaby.
According to Inside Pulse, Maggie and Glenn might take a big risk by trying to have a baby. Lauren Cohan got the Gleggie baby buzz started up again at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto. She was asked about rumors that Maggie will be pregnant when The Walking Dead returns in October, and of course she refused to give a yes or no answer.
“There are a lot of people who read the comics and you can appreciate that the show does divert from the comics. There is a lot in store for all of us. I think this season features more monumental change for all of us on this stage.”
Maggie already has a baby in The Walking Dead comic books, so it’s definitely possible that she’ll end up pregnant at some point on the show. However, Lauren Cohan was careful to point out that the AMC series doesn’t always follow its source material. Perhaps Glenn will die before he can get Maggie pregnant, or maybe their baby will be born but will have to be sacrificed to bloodthirsty zombie god Robert Kirkman along with Daryl Dixon. The Walking Dead TV series could simply reverse what happened in the comics by letting Maggie keep her husband but lose her baby.
Maggie and Glenn would certainly be taking a big risk by trying to have a baby during the zombie apocalypse. The Walking Dead fans saw what happened to Lori during childbirth, and baby Judith was lucky to survive her mother’s emergency C-section. With no doctors or medical equipment, the Gleggie baby will have to be a real fighter (and hopefully it won’t turn out to be a biter).
Fortunately, the survivors might find a whole hospital full of medical equipment during season 5. The Gleggie baby rumors started back in June when The Spoiling Dead Fans reported that a “popular AMC show” was looking for an old sonogram machine to use on the set. It’s possible that the group of survivors will head to a hospital in search of this machine after discovering that Maggie is pregnant. However, it’s also a possibility that Beth has been abducted by some weirdos who are running a human breeding program. The Walking Dead Comic-Con trailer did show Maggie’s sister in a hospital setting.
Do you think that The Walking Dead would dare to have one of the female survivors give birth to a zombaby? And do you think that Maggie, Glenn, and their rumored child will all survive season 5?
The Walking Dead returns on Sunday, October 12 at 9pm ET/PT on AMC.
