Everyone’s favourite zombie fighters return to Fox with season 5 of The Walking Dead

Broadcast

The undead return for yet another thrilling season in October. Calling all the DEADicated fans of the popular award-winning The Walking Dead - the time has come! A brand new season with more adventure, more action-packed scenes and naturally a lot more blood kicks off on 13 October, just a day after the US premiere. You can catch the new season of the highly anticipated show on FOX, DStv channel 125 on Mondays at 21:20 CAT.

Season 4 of The Walking Dead ended with Rick (played by Andrew Lincoln) and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate. Season 5 picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the gun-toting 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 onto no matter what the cost...

True to form of what the show has delivered to audiences in the past four seasons, this season promises more surprises, including one at the end of the first episode. Viewers can expect an epic ride filled with more stunt-heavy episodes than we’ve seen before.
