Great news for fans of The Walking Dead living outside the United States!

Fox International has picked up The Walking Dead and will air the series in 120 countries, producer Gale Anne Hurd announced today at the 2010 New York Comic-Con.

Hurd, speaking at The Walking Dead‘s panel at the Con’s packed IGN Theater, said that the series will premiere internationally within a week of its U.S. premiere on AMC, which is set for October 31, 2010, at 10pm.

The television series is based on the popular comic book series by Robert Kirkman and was greenlit by AMC for 6 episodes, which includes the 90-minute pilot (all subsequent episodes are 60 minutes each), and encompasses Season 1 of the show.

Filming for this short first season, which was shot on location in Atlanta, GA, has already wrapped, but there’s been no word yet whether the show will be picked up for a second season. Hurd made it clear that how well Season 1 is received by television viewers will determine whether the show will continue.

Judging by massive lines and crowds for this panel that poured into the IGN Theater, which was filled to capacity by the time the panel began, I’m guessing The Walking Dead television series will live on past the first six episodes. Exclusive footage was shown to the eager crowd, and was very well received.

We’ll have footage description and more news from this event soon, so check back for our full coverage of The Walking Dead panel, which had appearances by Hurd, Kirkman, director Frank Darabont, and several key members of the cast.
