Barricade your houses, stock up on supplies and prepare yourself because The Walking Dead are coming to AMC and you won’t want to miss it. The Walking Dead is directed by Frank Darabont and based on the hugely popular comics written by Robert Kirkman, is centered around Rick Grimes (portrayed by Andrew Lincoln) and a group of survivors trying to get by in a world stricken by a zombie plague. The story explores the human challenges and emotions of a world overrun by zombies, and how sometimes humans can be a greater danger to themselves than the undead.
Production for the show began in June in Atlanta and so far AMC has ordered six episodes as part of its first season this marks the fourth of AMC’s original series; the first three being Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Rubicon. AMC will premiere The Walking Dead during its annual “Fearfest” marathon of horror in October.
Personally, I have had many geekgasams watching this show develop over the last two months and can’t wait for October to come. If you haven’t started reading The Walking Dead yet whats wrong with you? Go out now and pick it up! You’ll be thanking me later. If you want to watch the epic preview trailer for it, you can find it in our previous article.
