With so many incredible TV shows on the air these days, it's hard to find the time to keep up with everything. Over the past five years, The Walking Dead has transformed from an obscure comic book adaptation to the biggest show on television, as the AMC series gets ready to unveil Season 6 on Sunday, October 11 at 9 PM ET. If you don't have time to either watch or re-watch all of Season 5 before the Season 6 premiere, First Time Again, the folks at Mandatory have just the video for you, especially if you happen to be a Cheers fan.
In just over two minutes, this video breaks down all of the memorable moments of The Walking Dead Season 5, from the premiere to the finale, including the destruction of Terminus, our first introduction to Father Gabriel Stokes (Seth Gilliam), Bob's (Larry Gilliard Jr.) "tainted meat" episode, the group's trek to Washington D.C., Eugene's (Josh McDermitt) betrayal and their eventual discovery of the Alexandria Safe Zone. You can also revisit the brutal deaths of Beth (Emily Kinney), Tyreese (Chad Coleman), Noah (Tyler James Williams) and Pete (Corey Brill). Of course, this video glosses over a lot, but it surprisingly hits most of the main beats covered last season.
The Walking Dead Season 6 picks up immediately following the events of last spring's finale when Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) executed Alexandrian Pete (Corey Brill) in front of a shocked town hall meeting, and the returning Morgan (Lennie James). But new threats both inside and outside the community will force Rick, Michonne and the other survivors to reevaluate their roles within the group and take drastic actions in order to protect their people and their new home. Along with all of these returning characters, Season 6 will feature plenty of new faces as well.
This new season will feature a number of new characters, such as Corey Antonio Hawkins' Heath, an Alexandrian supply runner, Merritt Wever as Dr. Denise Cloyd and Ethan Embry as Carter. Xander Berkeley joined the cast last month, and it's been speculated that he could either be playing the infamous comic book villain Negan, or Gregory, the leader of the Hilltop Colony. The show is also seeking actors to play a married couple named Kirk and Hilda, but fans have already speculated that this couple could be Dwight and Sherry. If Kirk and Hilda do turn out to be Dwight and Sherry, it could be another sign that Negan is coming aboard, since that couple isn't introduced in the comics until after Negan surfaces.
With just five days left until Season 6 arrives, take a look at this two-minute recap video, to get up to speed with the big events that happened in Season 5.
