A teaser has landed for February’s return of The Walking Dead which… doesn’t really tell us anything at all. I’m looking forward to the show returning but this teaser only really shows us two things; firstly that people will be firing guns a lot which is somewhat expected, and secondly that Rick’s beard has grown longer and slightly more fake looking. All in all there’s not a lot there to whet our appetite for next month really.
Rick’s voiceover tells us that nothing matters more than surviving together which certainly sounds cool when said in a gruff and broken voice, but which again has not really blown our minds in terms of a new direction for the show or anything. The implication here seems to be that the group are continuing to become less and less alive and that Beth’s death has only served to kill off a little more of their compassion and humanity. I’m not sure how well that’s going to work considering even Beth’s sister made no move to try and find her until it was too late but we will see.
The most interesting question for me is where is this going to go now. It seems like the group can’t keep getting much more dead inside without literally turning into zombies so either something new is going to have to come along and really wake them up – although I have no idea what could really do that, or they are going to have to veer off in a completely new direction… we shall have to find out in February.
Anyway, I’ve inserted the trailer below so take a gander and let me know what you think!
