“The Walking Dead” fans can finally call off the search for a fifth season
The ‘True Blood’ fans are in for a treat: Season 5 won’t debut until 2016. At least, that’s what the series’ creators had planned for fans.
In a series of tweets, creators and executive producers have left the door open for a fifth season, hinting that it could happen in the future if fans continued to seek it out.
The series revolves around two half-brothers: Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) – the former a reformed killer, the latter a former sheriff – who are pitted against one another in a war for control of the small town of Alexandria, Louisiana.
The final season of The Walking Dead has seen Rick and his best friend Rick Grimes die alongside their loveinterests, Carl Grimes (Michael Cudlitz) and Beth (Alanna Masterson), and Negan’s wife Carol (Melissa McBride) and Negan’s other daughter Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), leaving the last surviving walker, who is in the clutches of The Saviors (Corey Hawkins, Iain Glen and Michael Rooker), holding the only key to the city. What’s more, both Negan and Carol have also been possessed by the undead, and the series has explored the consequences of each.
But when the show celebrated its 10th and final season earlier this month, fan demand for a fifth season was so great that it saw the writing on the wall
