The wait is almost over! Well, not quite. AMC’s The Walking Dead will return to screen for a 13-episode long 2nd season on October 16th, 2011. However, fans at San Diego Comic-Con were treated to this 4-and-a-half minute long teaser trailer (watch below). Fox International Channel (FIC) acquired international rights to the show in 2010 through FOX Crime, an international channel with a growing repertoire of hit crime shows such as Law & Order, The Glades, Dexter, Fringe, Monk, Rubicon, and Warehouse 13. Members from cast and crew of The Walking Dead presented some details on the highly anticipated Season 2. Yes, it will pick up from the explosion at CDC. No, it will not stay in the city but move to a more rural setting. And yes, there will be fresh additions to the cast. You can watch video highlights from the panel here.
For those who are unaware that the zombie apocalypse has already happened, Season 1 focuses on Deputy Rick Grimes, a sheriff of a small town in Georgia, who gets gunned down and ends up in a coma, only to wake up to a post-apocalyptic world overrun with the walking dead. After Grimes discovers his wife and son are missing, he undertakes a dangerous journey in hopes of finding his family in Atlanta, where the CDC is rumored to have set up a quarantined safe-zone in the city.
Here’s the teaser trailer for Season 2. Bon appétit!
