Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer Release Date: AMC Confirms First Trailer Coming for the 2014 Comic Con

July 5, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

The first trailer for The Walking Dead season 5 will drop during Comic Con, which is scheduled for July 24 through July 27 in San Diego.

AMC confirmed rumors that the trailer would be shown at the convention via Twitter over the weekend.

“We’re counting down to the release of #TheWalkingDead Season Five trailer 7/25,” the official account told fans.

That information seems to negate any chance of the trailer being shown during the Talking Dead special on Sunday, July 6, which is capping off a marathon during which every single episode of the show aired.

The special, at 9 p.m. EDT, will feature host Chris Hardwick, showrunner Scott Gimple, and “Archer” actress Aisha Tyler discussing the upcoming season.

The network has said that there will be several glimpses into the next season, but not enough to constitute a full trailer.

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.
