One thing that far too many entries of zombie-related media do not seem to get is that walkers aren’t the only issue you’ve got to deal with in a zombie apocalypse. There’s also the little pain in the neck that is other people. Luckily, our trusty AMC series The Walking Dead understands this concept.
Season 2 of the phenomenal Robert Kirkman adaptation will take the group, consisting of Sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his wife (Sarah Wayne Callies) and son (Chandler Riggs), Rick’s spouse-stealing best friend Shane (Jon Bernthal), the group’s mystical patriatch Dale (Jeffrey DeMunn), grieving sister Andrea (Laurie Holden), token racist Daryl (Norman Reedus) and spirited pizza boy Glenn (Stephen Yuen) to new levels of in-fighting, distrust and disloyalty. Where the camp was a place of sanctuary last season, it may now present an even greater danger than the zombies themselves.
Or it’ll be a close second. They are, after all, zombies. The Walking Dead returns to AMC with a 90-minute premiere on October 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
