Although we have at least a five-month wait before The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres, show creators and actors have already dished out some juicy spoilers about the next season.

The season 4 of the zombie series ended with Rick Grimes and his friend getting locked up at the Terminus. The season 5 begins at the same place, featuring their escape route while revealing the mysteries behind Mary and her gigantic Terminus barbecue.

From the episode 15 of the last season, fans are speculating that the Hunters are cannibals of the Terminus, waiting to make Rick and friends their meals and Mary is the one 'cooking' the humans in that barbecue for them.

In an interview with Zap2it, Greg Nicotero, the director of season 4, episode 15, said he was proud of that episode. He said the audience can solve the mystery on what Mary is cooking only in the next season.

"Oh, of course, I know what she's cooking, and people will find out next season what she's cooking, but yeah, absolutely. I'm really proud of that episode."

Meanwhile, Wetpaint suspects that Mary might just turn out to be one among the cannibals from the Terminus.

Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon in the AMC zombie drama, has spilled some spoilers and tagged the upcoming series as 'completely insane.'

"From what I know, it's gonna be just completely insane," Reedus told EW in an interview. "I sort of knew I needed like a good month to rest to jump in. The storyline they're throwing me is a thousand miles an hour," he said.

Earlier, show creator Scott Gimple had hinted on some romantic moments for Daryl in the upcoming season.

The filming of season 5 will begin this week at Georgia while the cast and crew of the popular zombie thriller have assembled in the Atlanta area.

While fans are waiting to get shocked, awed and thrilled by the upcoming series, show creator Robert Kirkman has released a series of tweets urging fans to follow their favourite stars from the season 5.

The season 5 of the Walking Dead will have 16 episodes split into two sub-seasons just like season 4, the website reported. While the first 8 episodes will be aired from October to December, fans will have to wait till February 2015 for the second half.
