The newest 15-second teaser for season five of "The Walking Dead" features a surrounded Tyreese in a quaint little home in the woods. So he's not at Terminus. Check. It's brief but tense and hints at the intense season that awaits. Doesn't it seem like at the beginning of the past season, they build up the tension and say how brutal the upcoming season will be?

Last season (at least the second half) left us with no fingernails and Andrew Lincoln recently old Entertainment Weekly in an exclusive that this was kid's stuff. Lincoln said, “We’re really earning our rating this season. There are families that watch it together, but just so it’s on the record, guys—it’s a grown-up show this season.” EW was on set to get a closer look at this season and this week is offering four exclusive covers with the full story. Here's a little bite from executive producer and creator of the comic, Robert Kirkman, “By minute two or three of our season premiere, I think the vast majority of our questions have been answered, and five or six more have been presented, so you’re very much going to be invested, well-informed, and ready for the ride that we’re going to take you on.”

After the jump, check out the teaser and then pics of the exclusive EW covers that you can run to your local mini-mart to grab. They promise, "New Characters!" "Freakier Zombies!" and "More Kissing?" Of course, tune in on Sunday, October 12 at 9 p.m. ET. Click here for the full trailer.
