Official Poster: “The Walking Dead” Season 5.5

AMC has officially released the key artwork for the remaining eight episodes of the fifth season of ratings juggernaut “The Walking Dead”. The series, which has already been renewed for a sixth season, will premiere the new batch of episodes on February 8th. There’s also a brief synopsis for the events of the back half of the season:

After the tragic events of the mid-season finale – as well as losing the possibility of a cure in Washington, DC – Rick Grimes’ band of survivors find themselves on the road, surviving day-to-day and trying to hold on to their shredded humanity and dwindling hope.

Stripped of security and without a direction for the future, some of the group near their breaking point, some find themselves hardened and cold and some just try to grasp onto what little they have left. Though they are still breathing, the line between Rick’s group and the dead is starting to blur. Could there be anything at this point that brings them back to life?
