The ending of the last season of The Walking Dead left our heroes in a bit of a predicament. They had spent most of the season looking for salvation in the form of, Terminus. They finally happen upon it in the season finale and get something they didn’t expect; to be captured. Details have been scant on what to expect in Season 5, but AMC finally leaked an official synopsis and we have it below!

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?
