Fangoria insiders have dug up the news that after first season, which only consists of 6 episodes, of The Walking Dead, we're set for more than double that zombie deliciousness and it's coming soon.
With no official television debut set for the AMC show's second season, producer Gale Anne Hurd confirms that the series will expand to a set of 13 episodes per season.
Producer/Director Frank Darabont also spoke on his plans for season 2, stating he would love to include some of the environmental elements from volume 2 of series creator Robert Kirkman's epic comic.
"It would be great not just to get out of the heat, but to present a different idea to the audience visually and tonally by having it be winter. There’s some really cool stuff that Kirkman did, where they find the one zombie that’s frozen to the ground. I’d never seen that before and that’s really cool.” said Darabont.
“Or when Michonne shows up – and boy, is she a character I can’t wait to get to – when she comes striding out of the wasteland like a Clint Eastwood fucking spaghetti western character cross-melded with some samurai movie, like the Baby Cart character with the fucking sword, and there’s just a little drift of snow in the air. I would love to put that on film." said Darabont.
The Walking Dead debuts this Halloween on AMC.
