The brief teaser AMC released last week for The Walking Dead season 4.5 lived up to its description a little too much. This trailer however, complete with weigh-ins from the cast and crew on the physical and mental state of the characters, will surely do enough to tide fans over until the back half of the season premieres next month.

Clips of the new season are interspersed with appearances from Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun and Chad L. Coleman, who offer hints and muse on the emotional fallout of the mid-season finale that left the prison destroyed and Hershel dead. Additionally, comics creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman and current showrunner Scott Gimple also appear. Curiously, there's no mention of the missing (dead?!) baby Judith. The Walking Dead returns Sunday, February 9.
