Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer: Release Date May Come During Comic Con; Possibly During New ‘Talking Dead’ Special

Fans are wondering when to expect the first trailer for The Walking Dead season 5, and it looks like it could come before this year’s Comic Con.

The Comic Con is scheduled for July 24 through July 27 in San Diego.

But AMC recently announced that a special Talked Dead episode will air on July 6 at 9 p.m. EDT, featuring host Chris Hardwick, showrunner Scott Gimple, and Aisha Tyler from “Archer,” giving a first look at season 5.

That look could include a teaser trailer.

The special will come after an insane marathon that starts on Friday, July 4, in which every single episode of the show will air.

Two new Walking Dead documentaries will also be released for the first time on July 8 and July 15.

“Inside the Walking Dead,” airing on July 8, will showcase how the series is made. “The executive producers will discuss the process of mapping out the show and viewers will hear from all of the key production departments – from production design and special effects to costumes and makeup – about their role in crafting the world of The Walking Dead.”

“Inside the Walking Dead: Walker University” will show how extras get made into walkers. “Viewers will learn that there is much more to becoming part of the living dead than just make-up, and will get an inside perspective on the choreography, acting and motivation behind each zombie, including a look at what takes place at The Walking Dead’s own Zombie School.” This special will air on July 15 , also at 10 p.m. EDT.

Season 5 is filming right now and is set to premiere in October.
