Even though no official confirmation has been made regarding the cannibal story, the producers have teased that the backstory of how the community at Terminus was created will be featured in season five, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Executive producer Robert Kirkman recently told Entertainment Weekly that season five would be "pretty close" to the comics:

"There's a very popular, familiar story line in the comic books that happened immediately following the exodus of the prison, and it is entirely possible that we will be touching in some way on that very popular story line," said Kirkman.

Here's how the cannibal story might play out in the upcoming episodes, according to the THR report:

Could Gareth and Terminus really be a remixed version of the Hunters, from the comics?

The Walking Dead returns 12 October on AMC.
