The Walking Dead new posters get their scowl on

Life is tough on The Walking Dead and these new character posters reflect that

A new set of character posters for The Walking Dead has arrived ahead of its return from EW (via Bloody Disgusting)

“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 on to 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?“

The Walking Dead returns to Fox on 9 February. Find out more about the comics that inspired the series with the 100 All-Time Greatest Comics bookazine! Get an inside look at Season 5 in the new issue of SciFiNow.
