Comic-Con 2014: ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 5 Panel Shambles Out First Details
Any attendee of Comic-Con can attest that the conditions for getting around might as well be an episode of ‘The Walking Dead,’ but we thankfully no longer have to choose! That’s right, AMC will shamble out for Comic-Con 2014 with a massive panel for ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5, complete with cast, crew, and a brand-new trailer for the coming zombie horrors!
Taking place on Friday, July 25 in Hall H from 12:20 P.M. – 1:20 P.M. (you probably should have lined up a few months ago), AMC’s Comic-Con 2014 panel for ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 will feature such magnanimous guests as series stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Michael Cudlitz, and executive producers Scott Gimple, Gale Anne Hurd, Robert Kirkman, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert.
If history is any kind of guide, that’s where we’ll see the first full season 5 trailer as well, which hopefully proves a bit meatier than the recent premiere clip. Oh, and who could forget the third Petco Park staging of zombie apocalypse obstacle course ‘The Walking Dead: Escape?’
Elsewhere, we know of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 that existing stars Christian Serratos (Rosita), Alanna Masterson (Tara) and Andrew J. West (Gareth) have all been upgraded to series regulars, while ‘The Wire‘ star Seth Gilliam joined in a role all but confirmed to be that of comic preacher Gabriel Stokes. The fifth season of AMC’s monster-drama is expected to pick up immediately after the events of season 4 finale “A,” and will eventually divulge the fates of missing characters Beth, Carol, Tyreese and Judith.
We’ll be on hand for the panel, as well as to chat with the cast and crew of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5, but what say you? What are you most looking forward to checking out from Comic-Con 2014? Go behind the scenes of the new season below, and give us your predictions in the comments!
