TV: Filming Begins on Second Season of ‘The Walking Dead’; First Undead Photo!!

Frank Darabont is back in Atlanta, Georgia already in production on the second season of AMC TV’s widely popular The Walking Dead.

At this moment, I’m standing on a stretch of post-apocalypse interstate in Georgia, littered with abandoned cars and blessing my good luck to be reunited with our amazing cast, and our fantastic directors and crew,” says Darabont. “Across the board, there are none better. It’s great to be shooting again. I think we’ve embarked on a great season.

The second season will consist of a 13-episode arc and will premiere this Fall on AMC.

In addition, inside you’ll find a look at two more toys arriving this year from McFarlane Toys.


Check out photos of toys from McFarlane’s Walking Dead Comic Book. The following will be released this coming November.

Daryl Dixon: An abrasive survivalist, and brother of the outspoken racist Merle, Daryl Dixon is an all-new character created specifically for the hit AMC television show. Our figure of Daryl features the exact likeness of the actor, taken from a 3D scan of Norman Reedus himself. Figure comes with crossbow, hunting knife, fire axe, pick axe, and even a string of squirrels. Daryl goes perfectly with the Zombie Biter figure, also in The Walking Dead Television Series 1.

Zombie Walker: This memorable Zombie Walker, clad in a dirty business suit, was encountered by Rick during his first excursion into Atlanta. Upon Rick’s arrival, the walker rose from the wreckage of a city bus and followed Rick to an abandoned tank. This figure features all the attention to detail that McFarlane Toys is known for. Plus, like all of our The Walking Dead zombie figures, the Zombie Walker features unique playaction for even more fun. This one includes a special wind-up feature so your Zombie Walker will actually walk!
