article imageThe Walking Dead: Season 5 to begin worldwide 24 hours after US

By Mathew Wace Peck     Jul 26, 2014 in Entertainment
Season 5 of “The Walking Dead” is set to begin in more than 125 territories just one day after its US premiere, it has been revealed.
The news, conveyed by Fox International at the San Diego Comic-Con, confirmed that the immensely popular series will return to TV screens worldwide on Monday, October 13 — the US premiere, as previously announced, having taken place on Sunday, October 12.
The latest news follows hot on the heels of the release by AMC at Comic-Con yesterday of the Season 5 SDCC 2014 trailer, as already reported by Can Tran on Digital Journal.
Since it began in 2010, the popularity of The Walking Dead has grown year-on-year, with the Season 4 US premiere last October hitting an all-time high in terms of viewership: official figures recorded show that 16.1 million people tuned in. Almost equalling that, 15.7 million watched the season finale.
Never shy of killing off its main characters, many have been dispatched over the years, though Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), his son Carl (Chandler Riggs), Glen Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) have managed to survive thus far!
Season 5, which comprises 16 new episodes, sees Christian Serratos, Alanna Masterson, and Andrew J. West — who portray, respectively, Rosita, Tara and Gareth — promoted to series regulars for the new season.
In September 2013, it was revealed that AMC was working on developing a companion series to The Walking Dead.
