A new poster for the fifth season of “The Walking Dead” seems to confirm any and all suspicions that Rick Grimes and friends are in the company of cannibals.

“Hunt or be hunted,” a tag line reads on a new poster (above) AMC released Tuesday.

Season 4 ended with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) leading his gang of survivors — with the exception of Carol (Melissa McBride) and Tyreese (Chad Coleman), who have Baby Judith with them — into Terminus, a camp they hoped would be a safe haven in the zombie apocalypse.

Unfortunately, Rick, Daryl, Carl and Michonne were chased by gunfire in the season finale, until being forced into a train car where they discovered the rest of their group that escape from the prison were also being held captive.

A trailer that debuted at Comic-Con in July reveals that the survivors do, indeed, make it out of the railroad car alive, although it appears that they’re quickly captured again when “The Walking Dead” premieres on Oct. 12.
