The Walking Dead: Season 2 In The Works!

AMC’s new zombie drama The Walking Dead premiered last week and it’s already being renewed for a 13-episode second season!

Its Halloween night episode pulled in 5.3 million viewers and last night’s ep brought in 4.7 million.

“The Dead has spread!” said AMC President Charlie Collier. “No other cable series has ever attracted as many Adults 18-49 as The Walking Dead. This reaffirms viewers’ hunger for premium television on basic cable. We are so proud to be bringing back The Walking Dead again, across the globe.”

Zombies are the new vampires???

The series is about small-town police officer leading a group of survivors after a zombie apocalypse. Group shot pictured inside (l-r): Amy (Emma Bell), Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), Glenn (Steven Yeun), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies), Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Dale (Jeffrey DeMunn), and Andrea (Laurie Holden).

    I like this show, but I double that “zombies will be the new vampires”!!! Nobody wants to have sex with zombies- they have no personality whatsoever and they don’t even sparkle!

  • GG

    ^Who cares? This show rocks! I’m sick of all this vampire stuff.

  • dr who

    This show is superb, glad it’s doing well.

  • vivi
  • marisa

    i watched this show on halloween, flipping it on thinking that it was a movie. when i found out it was a show, i was surprised. it was really good & i’ll def. be watching again!

  • Ayesha

    this show’s sooo good, just like the comic books

  • Butter_Fly

    I want to see this so bad!

  • Anononome

    Good, but damn it, why do they always have to have some kind of love story within the story? It’s about zombie’s for pete’s sake !!!!!!!!

  • Status Quo

    The show is beyond great. I’m glad they finally made a zombie series..movies don’t do it justice..

  • George W

    Taylor Momsen would be perfect for this show,no special makeup needed!!!

  • Butter_Fly

    @Anononome:

    Haha! I share your frustration. Personally, I really don’t care for love stories. There’s maybe one or two that I like but “zombies” and “love” do not go together. Well, except maybe “I love zombies.”

  • Sean

    I liked this better when it was called Dawn of the Dead

  • TXpert

    Good move.

    Zombie movies really creep me out but I can’t stop watching this show. It’s compelling so far because the cast is good. I’ve seen some of these actors in other projects but not many so they’re refreshing.

    What makes ZOMBIE movies work for me are the attachments you feel towards the humans fighting for survival and you get attached them every week hoping none of them get picked off by the zombies.

    It’s well done for TV. Wish it were on cable..hate commercial breaks.

  • TXpert

    ..And..even though the show is good..it’s no comparison to TRUEBLOOD..completely different. Zombies are gross…really scary.

    TB has VAMPS, WARES and Witches.

    Vamps are powerful, smart, and sometimes sexy.

  • Anthony

    pretty good so far, thought a few moments were a little boring but I will be watching

  • lisa

    LOVE THAT SHOW. ANDREW LINCOLN IS AWESOME

  • sarah

    walking dead is absolutely awesome!!!

  • Mary

    @GG:

    I agree! The whole Vampire thing is sooo OLD and I’m done with all the drama and love stories…The apocalypse scenario explores the evils within us when trying to survive and live in such a raw world..What would you do to survive in a non orgnized and establised society.????/ I love it!

  • boston61

    It’s very good except for Andrew Lincoln’s awful American accent. You can just see him trying to remember not to sound like a Brit.

  • LLL

    This show is AMAZING. I love that it’s not just about the zombies, the characters are incredibly well written. I can’t wait for next week’s episode.

  • Tina

    Sarah Wayne Callies is amazing!!! And this show is so good. I am glad its gotten the recognition it deserves.

  • ranran

    love this show!!
    cant wait for next weeks episode!

  • shrinehi

    It’s good but…Zombies for a whole nutha 13 episodes? First episode was great. Second pretty good. I think it may get old after a while. What possibly more can they do with Zombies that hasn’t been done in a 2 hour movie?

  • ****

    I wish a zombie would eat the face off Officer Friendly’s hor wife.

  • shell

    @shrinehi: The show is based of a long running popular comic/graphic novel (can’t remember which one is correct) so I’m pretty sure they have tons of material.

  • Ellis

    If you like this show you would love the game “Left 4 Dead 2″. I’m surprised at the number of similarities… axe, crowbar, car alarm drawing horde, survivors held up in shopping center (and rooftop).. the list goes on. After playing this game for 12 months, I’m LOVING this series!!

  • Lisa

    I Love Glenn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is so cute and pretty

  • GreenCAT

    Awesome show! I’m hooked since it debuted!

  • michelle

    I love this show. There’s only been two episodes and i already think its great. It seems to get better and better with each episode. Im glad its doing so well. Even though i’ve liked some zombie films, i think this is way better than any zombie film i’ve seen.

  • JJKP

    @Sean:

    @shell:

    It was never based on Dawn Of The Dead. It is based on the comic series of the same title (ie. The Walking Dead). It is the most amazing Comic I have ever read, (Next to Blankets (but it’s not fair to compair the two.)) If you havent read the comics yet, give it a read. You can usually find a free digital version of issue #1 on the net. If you like the show, you will love the comics. Just wait until you see what events and characters are waiting for future sesons.

  • vasto

    i sooooooooooooooooooooooooo looking forward to season 2 when it comes! i love zombie movies way better than vampire flicks -.-

    @Anononome:

    Annonome, the “love” story, or more to the point, stories, are there to provide a foil for the end of times carnage. If we abandon love then why go on at all. Just drink the Kool-Aid and be done with it. We need to see that humanity survives, if only by a thread of gory sinew. Then, when the zombies finally “bite it”, we can, as Joni Mitchell extolled, get back to the Garden.

  • george_romero

    a t.v series?AMC had balls doing it,now it is paying off well.Genius,pure genius AMC.

  • Tboy

    This show is awesome….eff Vampires and if your wondering what else is to come besides zombies and flesh eating……does the show need anything else??? nope

  • Tboy

    This show is awesome….eff Vampires and if your wondering what else is to come besides zombies and flesh eating……does the show need anything else??? nope….I love this show..it’s like Prison Break meets resident evil!!!!!

  • http://leagueoffiction.blogspot.com/ Jon

    What a finish to a great first season. Can’t wait for the Next season. Time to Start reading Robert Kirkmans Comics to get filled in. The 79+ issues should tie me over until season 2 hits the air again.

  • http://leagueoffiction.blogspot.com/ Jon

    @shrinehi: Its not about the zombies, it’s about the people living amongst the zombies and their struggles in a post apocalyptic world. Read the 79+ issues that should help with getting insight as to where this is all going :) Im going to do that too. Love the show

  • kyleBMX

    This show is amazing, i was always a fan on the hit early zombie movies, but this is modern and done very well, i cant wait to see what happens in season 2, i dont know about anybody else but this show is amazing,!

  • justin

    @trish: Your kidding right? another twilight fanatic, the most unrealistic vampire movie of all time. vampires dont sparkle and they dont have rightful personalities, just another girl in love with edward. this show is amazing, much better then twilight.
