AMC Announces 90–Minute Season 2 Premiere Of ‘The Walking Dead’
The Movie God   |  @   |  

The Walking Dead Season 2

On Sunday, October 16 at 10pm, the highly anticipated second season of The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC.

To add to the excitement fans have for the 13–episode second season, AMC has also announced that the premiere episode will run 90 minutes in length, much like the pilot episode did last Halloween when the show first began.

Now the only question that remains””after showrunner Frank Darabont was supposedly fired, for which AMC has faced a ton of backlash””is if the same large following will continue to watch the show, or if some fans will have shunned it.


“The Walking Dead” follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln (“Love Actually,” “Teachers,” “Strike Back”), who are traveling in search of a safe and secure home.

Jon Bernthal (“The Pacific,” “The Ghost Writer”) plays Shane Walsh, Rick’s sheriff’s department partner before the apocalypse, and Sarah Wayne Callies (“Prison Break”), is Rick’s wife, Lori Grimes. Additional cast include: Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey DeMunn, Chandler Riggs, Iron E. Singleton, and Melissa McBride.

Recently announced guest stars include: Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, and Pruitt Taylor Vince.

Will you keep watching The Walking Dead, or was the removal of Darabont too much to ignore?


  1. I’ll wait to see a couple of episodes to see how it adds up to the Darabont work.  Suspended criticism, if you will.

  2. AgentSelf, you might want to give it more than a “couple” of episodes to see how Darabont’s loss affects the series.  I’m pretty sure I read that they had five or six episodes in the can and were in various stages of production on a few more when Darabont was fired.

    As for me… I’ll watch the series through thick and thin.  Unless, of course, the post-Darabont creative team makes wholesale changes to the series like killing off the entire cast or adding vampires or aliens to the plotline!  LOL.  I think there are still enough talented people involved in the production of the series that it could still be good.

    I am disappointed that Darabont won’t be involved any longer, since he was one of the main creative forces getting the show started in the first place.  But I’m willing to watch and wait to see what happens instead of giving up on the show without even seeing any of the episodes!
