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?
