Hold onto your sheriff hats, ‘Walking Dead’ fans. Rick is back in charge of the newly reunited group, and, of course, things get a little messy as they try to find their next safe haven. Click inside to WATCH!

Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) has an uncontrollable thirst for the kill, and it’s clear that that’s not going anywhere any time soon in the brand-new trailer for The Walking Dead‘s season 5B.

‘The Walking Dead’s Season 5B: Rick Returns In Violent Trailer

Are you ready for more dead? Then you are in luck, because the new trailer for The Walking Dead‘s upcoming second-half of season five is filled with them.

The trailer starts out slow, with Rick and the group sitting by a fire in the middle of the night. It looks like they’ve found a secure spot, something they definitely needed after their rough battles over Father Gabriel’s church and the loss of Beth.

“We do what we need to do, and then we get to live,” Rick says in that low, husky voice.

Suddenly, it all goes to you-know-where. Rick is standing on the side of the road cornered by a walker herd. Of course, his bloodlust takes over and the next thing we see is him slashing away — killing everything in his path.

It looks the the walkers are once again their greatest enemy, not some crazy man running a creepy town, or a group of cannibals in a warehouse.

“I know we’ll be okay, because this is how we survive,” Rick says in the voiceover, surely justifying his relentless actions.

In another scene, we see Daryl walking through a dark structure. He walks up to a pair of familiar doors — barn doors, maybe — and closes them tightly. But why is he alone?

Then the group is running in daylight. Skip to them all whipping out their weapons of choice in the middle of a road.

But the scariest footage of all is the dark scene that shows Glenn and Maggie terrified and desperate to keep the doors they are leaning on closed. More walkers, or something much worse?

Michonne Wants To Live Another Day

“It’s not over, this isn’t the end,” Tyreese says in a different voiceover.

Interestingly enough, the last voice we hear is Michonne’s as she begs to convince someone — possibly Rick — that there is more to life than just running through the woods for survival.

“Don’t you want one more day with a chance?” she asks.

It is probably safe to assume that survival is the theme of 5B — mostly because it’s been the theme of every season thus far.

So, will Rick put everyone’s lives at risk to feed his thirst for danger, or will the group finally convince him it’s time to try settling down again?
