'The Walking Dead' first look: Seth Gilliam as Father Gabriel Stokes
Executive producers Scott M. Gimple and Robert Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly that we will be meeting several new characters in season five of The Walking Dead—a mix of which will be brand new and from the comic book.
Comic book readers will be familiar with the first of the new characters being formally introduced via EW--Father Gabriel Stokes.
Introduced in issue #61, in the comic Father Gabriel offers the survivors shelter in his church as he attempts to atone for past sins. Will his introduction on the TV show mirror that of the comic? My guess is that Gabriel will keep his essence, as his character has some very distinct demons to wrestle with. We'll know for sure after season five debuts on Oct. 12!

Making of The Walking Dead: New Locations in Season 5
Location Manager Michael Reilly describes the unique challenges of shooting on location on The Walking Dead and gives fans a glimpse of what's in store for Season 5.
The big non-secret about The Walking Dead Season 5 is the survivors end up in a city, facing the unique challenges that comes with the change in terrain. It almost feels like Terminus is being considered a minor stop. Perhaps the actual place is, but the ramifications of having been there will continue throughout The Walking Dead season 5--or the first half of the season, at the very least. Despite all the fuss about the probable cannibalistic practices of the Termians, the cannibalism chapters in the comic book story didn't last very long, if I'm remembering correctly.
Dale was alive at the time and the unfortunate fellow had his one good leg hacked off for dinner but he had the last laugh when he told them the reason his other leg was missing was due to a walker bite. Freaked them out good. Then the good guys came along and dispatched with the group pretty neatly.
Should be fun to see how Rick and Co. interact with the Termians/cannibals and Father Gabriel as well as the whole city aspect of life.
