A new photograph posted on The Spoiling Dead Fans' Facebook page hints that the Hilltop Colony could be featured in season 6 of AMC's "The Walking Dead".

The photograph shows a fenced-in property and it is a major location in Robert Kirkman's comic book series, which is the source material for "The Walking Dead."

The Hilltop is first mentioned in issue 92 of "The Walking Dead" comics and is described as a farming community of 200 residents. The colony is about 20 miles from Alexandria Safe-Zone, which is where Rick and gang are currently placed.

If the picture is indeed that of the Hilltop Colony, then it won't be long before Jesus is introduced in the show. As fans of Kirkman's comics know, Jesus is the one who brings Rick Grimes and a group of survivors to the community.

A recent casting call also revealed that the show was looking forward to someone resembling Jesus.

The character will be called Jason, and as per the casting notice cited by Wetpaint, he is a Caucasian/Latino male in his 20s-30s. He is "smart, friendly, and charming with a puckish sense of humor."

Jason "can be a thief, but he'll only steal half of what you have, and only if he knows it won't cause any permanent damage. He's generally a benevolent guy — pretty much making friends with everyone he meets" and the character could be featured in subsequent seasons, the notice said.

If Jesus makes an appearance in season 6, then it won't be long before Negan too is introduced.

Negan, one of the most notorious villains in the comics, is the leader of a group called the Saviors and is first introduced in issue 100 of the comic book series. Unfortunately, Negan's entry means Glenn will not survive long.

"The Walking Dead" is set to return to AMC on 11 October.
