'The Walking Dead' Gets a Second Season

‘The Walking Dead’ Gets a Second Season

The first season of the new AMC series The Walking Dead, based on Robert Kirkman’s comic, hasn’t even aired yet but already it seems the cast and crew need to prepare to get back to work. According to reports a “crew insider” let slip that the series would return to Atlanta in February to begin filming the second season of episodes.

Presumably the second season will follow the pattern of the first and be six episodes. Although, we can always hope for more considering other AMC series like Mad Men and Breaking Bad contain thirteen episodes each. If the first season of The Walking Dead does well enough, maybe AMC will order more for the second. Fingers crossed.

Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman and produced and directed by Frank Darabont, the series will deal with the aftermath of a zombie plague and follow a group of survivors led by Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). The group must face a diverse set of problems and challenges not only from zombies and other survivors but from within their group as well.

The Walking Dead, which also features Laurie Holden, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey De Munn and Michael Rooker, premieres on AMC on October 31st.
