Fangoria insiders have dug up the undead news that after a short 6 episode first season of The Walking Dead - which debuts this Halloween, we're set for more than double that zombie deliciousness and it's coming soon.

Filming is set to begin in February, 2011 with no official television debut set for the AMC show's second season, but producer Gale Anne Hurd also confirms that the series will expand to a set 13 episode season. This is to be expected as many of these harder edge shows run around that length.



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.

He went on to say that he's probably most excited introduce one of the fans and perhaps one of his favorite series characters into the foray possibly as early as next season, even though the comic series waits a little later on.



“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 f***ing spaghetti western character cross-melded with some samurai movie, like the Baby Cart character with the f***ing sword, and there’s just a little drift of snow in the air. I would love to put that on film." said Darabont.

GD!! I can't wait for this! I wish the first season was longer than 6 eps. It's going to be torture waiting for season 2. If it's half as good as the book, I think this series is really going to be something special.

Thanks Kev

EXCELLENT!!!

Awesome news that Season 2 is already on the cards. Lets hope they get the ratings to make it so. If he's wanting to introduce Michonne in season 2 that means we'll be getting the prison alot sooner than he previously stated. Can't wait, i think i'm gonna have to do a Cartman and freeze myself untill it airs. Haha.

Oh and Tracie Thoms for Michonne :)

NICE!:D

@DLM Great suggestion! Traci Thoms is an excellent excellent actress!! Only question would be whether or not she can handle the action sequences. The right trainer and choreographer though would take of that I guess.
Great choice!

If the second is going to be as good as the first it will be worth it!

Fortunately, the news about the original staff writers being let go was just a bit of hot-air. The majority of them are coming back for season 2, so we don't have to worry about the story arc being screwed by freelancers.
