The Walking Dead officially returns for the second half of season 6 on Feb. 14. And judging by the official key art released Wednesday by AMC, the stakes are as high as they’ve always been.

“This image gives a look at tiny pieces of a larger world our group is about to discover,” executive producer and showrunner Scott M. Gimple said in a statement. “In the new world, they’ll find hope, possibility, tragedy and the terrifying cost of change.”

Not much more has been teased about where we’ll find our heroes when the show returns, but according to Robert Kirkman, the second half of season 6 will pick up right where the fall finale left off.

“Alexandria is overrun,” he told EW. “Rick and the kids are all covered in guts trying to get through the crowd. Everyone is where we last saw them, and things get worse from there.”
