The Season 6 premiere of The Walking Dead is lurching ever closer, and AMC is pulling out all the stops to get us jazzed for a return to post-zombie America on Oct. 11. Their latest offering? A set of classy character portraits featuring your favorite survivors. They'll be popping up around the web, but here at Blastr we're hosting a look at Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos) and the exquisitely mustachioed Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz).

Check them out in the gallery below, and prep for a return to Walker World with this blurb from AMC:

Season Five of “The Walking Dead” saw our group being formed into consummate survivors by the world around them... nearly making some of them into villains. To make it as far as they have – to have persevered through all of their heartbreaking challenges – they have evolved into incredibly powerful people.  But who have they become?
The last five episodes of Season Five answered that question with Rick accepting an approach of unapologetic brutality in murdering Pete, a fellow Alexandrian. 
Season Six starts with Alexandria's safety shattered by multiple threats. To make it, the people of Alexandria will need to catch up with our survivors’ hardness while many of Rick’s people will need to take a step back from the violence and pragmatism they've needed to embrace. These reversals won't happen easily, or without conflict.  
But now Rick’s group is fighting for something more than survival...
They're fighting for their home, and they will defend that at any cost, against any threat, even if that threat comes from within.

Season 6 of The Walking Dead premieres Oct. 11 at 9 p.m.
