Today, AMC releases five new images from the set of its upcoming original series The Walking Dead (read our ongoing on set coverage), which depict new shots of walkers as well as the arrival of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) on horseback in Atlanta — and the horrors he encounters there. “The Walking Dead” is currently being filmed on location in Atlanta, GA, and will premiere on AMC this October. The adaptation to the Robert Kirkman comic is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes, in search of a safe place to live. The pilot episode was directed by Frank Darabont.
