Fans of "The Walking Dead" will get a satisfying dose of zombie action when the show returns for its second season on Oct. 16. On Thursday (Sept. 1), AMC announced that the show will kick off with a 90-minute premiere episode to get us up to speed on the progress of its zombie-pocalypse smash hit.
The show's first season, too, opened with an expanded episode, but ran for only six episodes. This season, we'll be treated to 13 glorious weeks of zombie-fueled drama.
Despite the exit of show creator Frank Darabont in July, the AMC ratings frontrunner is filming in Georgia and, based on early leakage to the blogosphere, is on track to deliver another season of must-watch episodes.
AMC also announced the addition of two new shows to its line-up:
The unscripted series "Secret Stash" -- set in Kevin Smith's comic book shop, Jay and Silent Bob''s Secret Stash, promises to "capture the world of the neighborhood comic book store and fanboy culture." We love it, but we're going to go ahead and predict this as appealing to a niche market. The show is set to debut in February 2012.
"JJK Security" will be centered on a small, family run security business and is (a la "Walking Dead") set in Georgia. AMC describes it as a "Southern gothic workplace dramedy." So "The Office" meets "True Blood"? Expect to see it air in summer 2012.
