Andrew Lincoln reveals that, while younger kids have watched the show with their families in the past, he doesn't advise the young ones watch this year.

"We're really earning our rating this season. There are families that watch it together, but just so it's on the record, guys-it's a grown-up show this season."

Season 4 culminated with Rick and his group finally reuniting as they find the Terminus refuge, only to have this group of cannibals trap them in a railroad car. This spring's finale posed several questions, although executive producer/comic book creator Robert Kirkman revealed that all of those questions will be answered very early in the Season 5 Premiere.

"By minute two or three of our season premiere, I think the vast majority of our questions have been answered, and five or six more have been presented, so you're very much going to be invested, well-informed, and ready for the ride that we're going to take you on."

Stay tuned for more details, images and footage as we get closer and closer to the Season 5 Premiere, airing Sunday, October 12 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
