If you're feeling lonely, abandoned and empty inside following the Season 5 finale of [The Walking Dead](series:201193) then maybe we've got just the thing for you! AMC has released a new featurette where the cast and crew discuss Season 5 and what it has meant for the characters.

Many of your fave actors appear, as well as some of the amazing crew who have turned this show into the unstoppable zombies beast it has become. Take a look at some of the highlights of the featurette and then watch the whole thing at the end of the article:

Co-Executive Producer Denise Huth talks about the journey over the entire 5th season, and how - despite the group escaping the horrors of places like Terminus to end up in a "relatively safe" environment at Alexandria - that doesn't mean the group gets to escape their inner demons (or the literal demons outside the gates).

She later goes on to add that the group has been given a new chance and home following the many horrible losses of the past season and a half. However, no matter how much hope the people of Alexandria have that life will go on as it always has, the apocalypse has changed people radically, and civilization as we used to know it may not be attainable.

Executive Producer Scott Gimple talks Rick Grimes' journey in Season 5, and about how the season was about cementing Rick's belief that he had finally figured out the best philosophy for dealing with this post-apocalyptic world.

Andrew Lincoln then echoed this sentiment by saying that he believes Season 5 is about Rick letting go of the past, and acknowledging that "there is no past any more and we have to live this way - or die."

Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Steven Yeun (Glenn) and Josh McDermitt (Eugene) all talk about the change in the characters that has happened throughout Season 5 after so many losses, so quickly - Bob, Beth, Tyreese and Noah in Season 5 alone!

Executive Producer Tom Luse, Christian Serratos (Rosita), Alanna Masterson (Tara) and Seth Gilliam (Father Gabriel) all mentioned that no matter the tough times, and how much it looks like the group could crumble, they ultimately band together as a strong force and that's why they have lasted so long.

While The Walking Dead is now off our screens until October, we can all look forward to the companion series [Fear the Walking Dead](series:1117438) which will debut on AMC some time over summer.
