AMC has debuted an official trailer for The Walking Dead season 5, seeing Rick more pissed off with zombies than he's ever been.

The teaser is short on dialogue but long on action, splicing together gunfights, bus crashes and one giant explosion.

We already know quite a lot about the new season, for instance that Daryl's sexuality may be explored and that it will see the deaths of some major characters.

AMC recently posted a synopsis for it, which is as follows:

'Season Four of The Walking Dead ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate.

Season Five picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.

Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them…

After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held on to no matter what the cost...

Who do they become?'

The Walking Dead will return in the US on Sunday 12 October and in the UK just 24 hours later.
