Rick and his survivors bring "All-Out War" to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless - but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.
Rick and his group's world becomes even more brutal due to Negan's deadly example of what happens if they don't live under his rules. Everyone must begin again.
With no hope of safety in Alexandria, Rick's group is forced to resume their precarious fight for survival. In the fight for humanity, many have become inhumane. While the Alexandrians must adapt to the hardness of Rick's group, Rick's group must retreat from their violent ways. This won't happen easily, but now there is more at stake than simply surviving. Rick's group is fighting for a chance at normalcy in a world of chaos.
After the season 4 finale left most of the main characters at the mercy of the sadistic inhabitants of Terminus. Season 5 will offer new directions for the group of survivors as scientist Eugene Porter promises a cure to the zombie virus if he can be safely escorted to Washington DC, but getting there is easier said than done.
