However, the new trailer for Season 5 seemed to hint towards them being cannibals, with our group of heroes being lined up for the slaughter before Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) convinces Gareth (Andrew J. West) that they need to go to Washington, D.C. so Eugene (Josh McDermitt) can provide the right people with the cure. On the plus side, Beth (Emily Kinney) was not on that BBQ!

The Peabody-winning series was created by David Simon (`The Corner'), whose richly layered plotlines focused on the city's illegal drug trade in the first season before expanding in scope for the second to include corruption on the waterfront.
