After the heartbreaking winter finale, fans of ‘The Walking Dead‘ were left to stew in sadness for an extended period of time over the past few months. Here and there we would get short glimpses at the second half of the fifth season, but now we’re less than one week away from the return of the highly acclaimed AMC zombie drama. To tease those of us anxiously waiting for February 8th to come, a new promo for the mid-season premiere has hit the web recently that contains some new footage.

Since the fall of the prison, Rick Grimes and the rest of the survivors have been plagued with problems on the road. From Terminus to the hospital and everything in between, these people have not had the easiest time staying alive. In the latest teaser, we can see that things don’t necessarily get any easier, but at least they have a strong core of people including new addition Noah played by Tyler James Williams and a mysteriously large gate that may hold the answers to their problems. Ahead of Sunday’s premiere, you can check out the newest trailer below:

Though many might not see much of anything in this quick thirty-second spot, readers of the comics might theorize that the gate might belong to the Alexandria Safe Zone. This is a direction that many have anticipated for quite some time, but as we’ve seen, the show can sometimes deviate from source material, so the only way to know for sure is to tune in to see exactly what happens. But until then, what do you think of the latest teaser for season 5B? Are you excited for the return of ‘The Walking Dead’? Let us know in the comment section.
