AMC is yet to announced a premiere date for The Walking Dead Season 5.

But we know the highest-rated show on television will return with new episodes on October and now we also now that Rick Grimes will be a bloody mess on the premiere.

That’s nothing new, of course, but AMC unveiled the following photo today.

It’s a close-up of Andrew Lincoln’s character, keeping vigilant… and very badly in need of a shower.

The Walking Dead – whose Season 4 finale in March brought in 15.7 million viewers, 10.2 million of whom were between the advertiser-friendly ages of  18 and 49 – is currently shooting in Georgia.


Christian Serratos (Rosita), Alanna Masterson (Tara) and Andrew J. West (Gareth) have all been promoted to series regular status for Season 5 and former Wire star Seth Gilliam will be joining the cast as well.
