It's confirmed. The first trailer of The Walking Dead Season 5 will be revealed during the 2014 San Diego Comic Con, which is scheduled for 24-27 July.

AMC confirmed rumors that the trailer would be shown at the convention, via the show's official twitter account, over the weekend, reports Epoch Times.

The bad news for fans, however, is that they might not be able to see the trailer during the Talking Dead special, which airs tonight (6 July).

The special, which airs at 9 pm EDT, will feature host Chris Hardwick, showrunner Scott Gimple, and Archer actress Aisha Tyler discussing the upcoming season. Reportedly, several glimpses of the upcoming season will be seen but not the complete trailer.

Two new Walking Dead documentaries will also be released for the first time, on 8 July and 15 July (via Epoch Times).

Inside the Walking Dead, airing on July 8, will showcase how the series is made.

"The executive producers will discuss the process of mapping out the show and viewers will hear from all of the key production departments – from production design and special effects to costumes and makeup – about their role in crafting the world of The Walking Dead."

Inside the Walking Dead: Walker University will show how extras get made into walkers.

"Viewers will learn that there is much more to becoming part of the living dead than just make-up, and will get an inside perspective on the choreography, acting and motivation behind each zombie, including a look at what takes place at The Walking Dead's own Zombie School." This special will air on July 15, also at 10 pm EDT.

The Walking Dead Season 5 is set to premiere in October 2014.
