Trailer – Never Let Your Guard Down – The Walking Dead: Season 5 Premiere September 8, 2014 AMC has released a new trailer for The Walking Dead Season 5! “Hunt or be hunted.” Catch up with the remaining survivors in the Season 5 premiere of The Walking Dead, Sun., Oct. 12th at 9/8c on AMC. AMC Has Officially Ordered a Pilot for a Walking Dead “Companion Series”. The project, which was first announced last September, was co-created and co-written by Robert Kirkman and Sons of Anarchy’s Dave Erickson. Kirkman will act as showrunner and executive producer alongside The Walking Dead’s Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert. Not technically a spin-off, the new companion series will be set in a different location and feature an entirely new cast of characters. “There are many corners of The Walking Dead universe that remain unseen in the shadows,” Kirkman said in a statement. “Being given the opportunity to shine a light into those corners and see what lurks out there is an absolute thrill. I know the fans are anxious to hear what Dave and I have been cooking up for this new universe of The Walking Dead, and I’m happy to be one step closer to sharing it with them.” Production on the pilot will begin later this year.
