This is either a zombie renaissance, or a comic book renaissance for TV, as The Walking Dead has officially been greenlit for a second season or a whole 13 episodes after record ratings. As the President of AMC put it:
“No other cable series has ever attracted as many Adults 18-49 as ‘The Walking Dead.
That’s called making an impact. The second episode, which aired last night, w as down only a tick from the premiere’s record breaking ratings.
Congrats once again to Robert Kirkman and company. PR below.
So, does The Walking Dead (premiering this Sunday, Halloween, on AMC at 10:00/9 PM C) live up to the hype?
One Word Answer: Ewwwwwwwwww!
It’s Halloween Week AND Walking Dead Week and this is freaking radical: special limited edition artwork by four indie art stars, available at Secret Headquarters in LA.

Too early for Halloween plans? Not really. The Walking Dead TV show debuts on Halloween at 10 PM ET with a 90-minute opening episode. Based on Robert Kirkman’s comics, the show follows the adventures of the survivors of a zombiepocalypse, and stars Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Shane Walsh, and Sarah Wayne Callies. A four-and-a-half minute trailer was also released, and we would absolutely set our DVR for this while we were out trick or treating!
