Season 2 of the AMC series The Walking Dead begins on Sunday October 16, and I can’t wait. The show’s creator Frank Darabont succeeded in bringing zombies from the big screen to weekly television with his first season of The Walking Dead. AMC made a great choice on signing this show up and keeping it going after the first season. The first suspenseful episode had us follow Rick Grimes, a sheriff’s deputy, as he wakes up in the hospital, after a gun shot wound. Rick walks through the hospital, wondering where everyone is. He goes outside to find that the dead are walking.
In season 1 you’ll remember that at the very end of the final episode the CDC building was destroyed and the survivors drove away. I’m still wondering here were they are going? That’s where the new season will likely start off. I think it is likely that new characters will be introduced. In season 1 we saw the reuniting of a family, with Rick Grimes finding that his wife and child were still alive. But the wife had moved on. I am anxious to see if the tensions will rise in this threesome. It’s a definite that Rick and Lori Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln and Sarah Wayne Callies, will make it through season 2, but survival is up in the air for the rest of the cast. The only way to find out who survives and if there are even more survivors out there is to watch the show. I won’t miss an episode of this edge of your seat thriller.
