The Walking Dead Season 5: Huge Changes Ahead!

at . Comments

While fans can likely expect the carnage to continue when The Walking Dead Season 5 returns with new episodes in February, cast and crew spoke to E! News this week and offered up an intriguing warning:

Change is coming.

"The back eight has a very interesting structure," executive producer and showrunner Scott Gimple says of upcoming installments, adding:

"There are some very emotional moments, there are some very crazy moments and there's a huge change for the situation of these characters."

A huge change, huh? When we last saw Rick, Daryl and company on The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 8, they had just lost Beth. They also seem to have lost any kind of direction.

Where might they head to next?

"It feels like we're moving into a new show, it just feels like a new place visually and also story wise" Andrew Lincoln previews in the footage above.

The Walking Dead returns with new episodes on Sunday, February 8 at 9/8c on AMC.

Until then, you can always watch The Walking Dead online if you need a refresher.
