Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) has one piece of advice to give to his band of zombie apocalypse survivors: “We do what we need to do, and then we get to live”.

That’s about as spoiler-ific as the new trailer for The Walking Dead midseason return gets, which will be a welcome change for fans tired of reading plot spoilers online (and if you’ve not yet seen the first part of series five, don’t read on).

The death of Beth (Emily Kinney) in the mid-season finale in November is likely to have a big impact on the group, with Beth’s sister Maggie (Lauren Cohan) expected to take a turn for the worse.

They’re likely to be in the wilderness for a while but Rick’s goal will be to find a permanent home for his group – and chances are there will be a few zombie hordes that will come between them and safety.


The Walking Dead returns to FOX in the UK on Monday 9 February. The series will be broadcast 24 hours after it is shown on AMC in the US on Sundays.
