A new 16-episode season of The Walking Dead starts on AMC in the US this Autumn, with transmission in the UK to follow at a later date.

Below is our first look at the new season setting: The Prison, where the group hope to take refuge. Plus a new banner, featuring new art of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and newcomers, Michonne (Danai Gurira) and the Governor (David Morrissey) who are well known from the comic book series.

Talking about the new prison setting showrunner Glen Mazzara told EW: “I’m incredibly proud of the prison,” adding: “I think our crew has done a great job. It’s a huge sense of scale and magnitude I haven’t seen on any other show as far as construction. What’s important to us is, the prison itself is now a character in the show. It’s a haunted house, it’s scary, it’s frightening, and there are parts of the prison that are always terrifying, that are always inaccessible to our group. It’s not necessarily the blessing that the prison in the comic book turned out to be.”
