Contains spoilers for The Walking Dead season 4.
If you were amongst the millions who watched The Walking Dead's season four finale, then you'll know it left Rick and co. in something of a predicament. Trapped in the mythologised Terminus, a place that, as many had suspected, isn't what it was cracked up to be, the season left us with a major cliffhanger. Comics creator Robert Kirkman has promised that Terminus' dark, layered history will be explored in season five, which will reveal "how these people came to be".
A key character in the Terminus story is leader Gareth (Andrew J. West, below), one of three season four newcomers to have been promoted to season five regulars.
Also returning for season five will be Rosita (Christian Serratos), who first appeared in The Walking Dead as a member of Abraham's Army.
And finally, Alanna Masteron's Tara, a member of the Governor's short-lived new family in the fourth series, will be joining Gareth and Rosita as a season regular in the new run.
