Star Chad L. Coleman says after "all hells broke loose" in season 4, things will scale down in season 5 but it gets even harder. who plays Rick describes season 5 as "messy," "brutal" and "thrilling," while teases an "explosive" beginning.

On the "Talking Dead" season finale, exec producer Scott M. Gimple revealed that the survivors wouldn't stay in Terminus throughout season 5. "We're looking at all the new places we're going," he said. "It's going to be an incredible season. It's going to be completely different from this year."

Meanwhile, in a Twitter Q&A before the season 4 finale aired, Gimple said there would be more characters from the comic books coming in the TV show. He initially refused to mention any, but then spilled the beans, "Negan will be in the show... But we won't say when."

In the comics, Negan is the leader of The Saviors who always carries a baseball bat wrapped in barbwire that he calls Lucille. He's described as exceptionally brutal and known for being foul-mouthed.
