It took place in winter, and it included most of the characters, but beyond that nothing was revealed. AMC dropped a new trailer on YouTube today, and with it comes a bit more -- as well as something to be excited about.

Curved televisions and monitors are the latest trend, but Vizio, at least, isn't happy with them.
