THE WALKING DEAD Season 2 Announced

Season 2 of THE WALKING DEAD has been announced by AMC. Yes, it’s true AMC has given its new series a second season of 13 episodes after only two episodes from season 1 aired. Not a big surprise though since The Walking Dead broke ratings records, with the series reaching more Adults 18-49 than any other show in the history of cable television.

“The ‘Dead’ has spread!” said Charlie Collier, President, AMC. “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 Dead’ again, across the globe.”

AMC’s The Walking Dead is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. It tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The comic goes on to explore the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies who take a toll on the survivors, and sometimes the interpersonal conflicts present a greater danger to their continuing survival than the zombies that roam the country. Over time, the characters are changed by the constant exposure to death and some grow willing to do anything to survive.
