According to AMCs The Walking Dead Blog, the series (of the same name duh) has been signed for a second season. That excites me in ways you just can’t imagine (and probably don’t want to). Apparently The Walking Dead has “has broken ratings records, with the series reaching more Adults 18 to 49 than any other show in the history of cable television”. That is freaking awesome. And not just because it broke a record, but because it’s zombies, and it broke a record. Season two will feature a full 13 episodes, as opposed to this seasons 6 episodes. Twice the zombie action. Check out the press release here for more information. I’m gonna go shiver in glee now.
There are no words to depict the awesomeness of this trailer. AMC channel has released a four and a half minute trailer for the new zombie series “The Walking dead” and it is available over on Bloody-Disgusting.com. Apparently the series is set to premiere on Halloween on AMC. What are you doing on Halloween? Watching AMC mofos! Catch the trailer here and head on over to BD for more set previews and sneak peaks on the series.
According to Bloody-Disgusting, AMC has given the go ahead to shoot the pilot for the TV series “The Walking Dead”. The walking Dead is based on a group of survivors trying to stay alive after the zombie uprising. It’s going to be directed by Frank Darabont (The Mist). I don’t know if that’s a good thing. Because I saw the Mist. I sat through that whole movie and when it got to the ending and they screwed us over with that stupid fuc… *ahem* Well, let’s just say the ending was less than satisfactory.
Regardless of direction, this news makes me more excited than a zombie in a meat factory. It’s been a long time coming for a zombie TV series, and I am really hoping the pilot makes a good enough impression to carry on a whole season. Zombie TV here we come!
The comic book ”The Walking Dead” may soon be a TV series. The comic book has been around since 2003 and is published by image comics. The comic book is published in black and white and has a gritty drama feel to it. The issues I’ve read have been pretty interesting and mainly outline the drama of those who have survived (or I should say are still surviving) the Zombie Apocalypse.
It appears that AMC may be taking on the project. To quote John Stillerman of AMC ”This is not about zombies popping out of closets,” Stillerman said. “This is a story about survival, and the dynamics of what happens when a group is forced to survive under these circumstances. The world (in ‘Walking Dead’) is portrayed in a smart, sophisticated way.”
As much as I like closet popping zombies, the direction the show may take for a TV series sounds interesting. But really, who cares? It’s a TV show featuring those loveable flesh eating monsters we’ve come to love and adore. That’s all I need to start watching.
