walking dead 2 New Walking Dead Promo Highlights Zombie Action

I’ve already said it, but the only show at the top of my “most anticipated” list for 2010 is AMC’s adaptation of The Walking Dead. While I’ve only recently become familiar with the comic book source material created by Robert Kirkman, this TV show immediately piqued my interest due to two facts that immediately make it a potential winner in my book:

  1. The show is premiering on AMC, a channel which is establishing an excellent track record for great original programming (see: Mad Men and Breaking Bad).
  2. The show is being adapted by Frank Darabont (The Mist, Shawshank Redemption), who will also be writing and directing episodes.

If those two facts aren’t enough to get you excited about The Walking Dead, maybe the promise of some good character-driven zombie apocalypse action will do the trick.

Not so coincidentally, today we have a new promo for The Walking Dead that is geared toward baiting you with the promise of characters you’ll come to care about, who are then placed in some grueling (and gruesome) zombie attack situations.

If you missed the first Walking Dead trailer and know nothing of the comic books, then you need to check out the new promo material below and get yourself familiar with this awesome-looking show:

The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey DeMunn, Michael Rooker, Sarah Wayne Callies and Laurie Holdenairs. It airs on AMC this Halloween, October 31st @ 10/9c. Be sure to be there, or you may end up missing the premiere of the best new show of 2010.

  1. i think i just came alittle

    • Lol

  2. I seriously can ‘t wait for this show. I’ve been a reader since DAY 1 and always said that this would be a great tv show. Personally as much as I love the beginning story arc, I really can’t wait till The Governor comes into the picture. I’m not going to spoil anything but readers will know what I’m talking about. =D

  3. Best. New. Show.

    This will help my zombie cravings because it’s a pain waiting WEEKS between each issue of Walking Dead.

    • Try the nearly 6 months for the trade paperbacks. They have been coming 2 a year. Thankfully they are doing 3 this year, just in time for the show

      • I’m just getting into comic books and it’s a shock to me that I have to wait that long for new issues

        Luckily, my first comic book experiences were with Y:The Last Man and Preacher, both of which have concluded.

  4. All I can say is, Damn!

  5. ummm. i liked the trailer, but how is Frank Darabont linked with Dark City or the Crow. I’m pretty sure he didn’t but again me, google, and imdb might be wrong. Can you let me know?

  6. YEah dark city and the crow were alex proyas right?
