It’s a good day for zombies. Even though it doesn’t premiere until Halloween, Frank Darabont has confirmed to Fangoria magazine that The Walking Dead has already been picked up for a second season. CBM reports the second season will begin filming in February 2011 and will have a 13-episode story arc as opposed to the first seasons 6.
Darabont even discussed environments he’d like to incorporate and even characters from the graphic novels he plans to get to, including the ninja-sword wielding Michonne.
“…Boy, is she a character I can’t wait to get to – when she comes striding out of the wasteland like a Clint Eastwood [email protected]#ing spaghetti western character cross-melded with some samurai movie, like the Baby Cart character with the [email protected]#ing sword, and there’s just a little drift of snow in the air. I would love to put that on film.”
A second season? Michonne? The good news just keeps on rolling in for this TV show. Tune in October 31 at 10 p.m. on AMC for the season premiere of The Walking Dead.
