In what has to be the most painful news ever to hit fans of The Walking Dead and AMC’s stellar adaptation, word has come down just when we’ll be seeing Season Two shambling its way to TV. Prepare, dearest reader, for an absolutely torturous wait.
According to The Hollywood Reporter AMC isn’t likely to launch the 13-episode second season until next October.
The reason? Fearfest. AMC’s annual horror movie marathon served as a perfect promotional platform to ramp up interest for “The Walking Dead”, which also took advantage of the higher audience levels during the fall (something not all cable shows can pull off given the barrage of broadcast shows airing at the same time — which is why most cable dramas run during the summer).
There is a faint silver lining though. THR also reports that Frank Darabont will return to the director’s chair for more undead mayhem. This is going to be one hell of a long year.
