Anticipation for the AMC series THE WALKING DEAD is reaching a fever pitch to match a zombie slavering for the blood and brains of the living. And speculation has been equally hot about a second season that would follow up the six episodes which begin airing this Halloween.
Word from a crew source on the show’s home turf in Atlanta is that THE WALKING DEAD will resume shooting for the follow-up season next February; however, an AMC rep let us know that the pickup for another round of episodes has yet to be confirmed (the network is offering a walk-on role in one of those shows in a contest, but notes that it’s contigent upon the pickup, and if the series isn’t renewed, a conciliatory prize of equal estimated value will be awarded). Based on the Robert Kirkman comic-book series, THE WALKING DEAD is executive-produced by genre vets Frank Darabont (who also wrote and directed the pilot that debuts on Halloween night) and Gale Anne Hurd, among others. Go here to see a lengthy trailer, and pick up Fango #297, on sale in September, for exclusive pics and a set-visit cover story (see details here).
