Updated with third image. Both MTV and THR scored an exclusive image from the forthcoming second season of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”. In THR’s image, Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) comes to the rescue as the survivors – shocker! – must weave their way through yet another confrontation with roamers. In MTV’s pic, Rick Grimes and his fellow zombie apocalypse survivors trekking through the blistering forested heat of Atlanta. He’s not alone, thankfully: Daryl Dixon is leading the pack with his trusty crossbow in hand, while friendly faces Andrea, Carol, Glenn and Rick’s wife Lori hang in the background.
The project is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes (Lincoln), in search of a safe place to live. In this latest season of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” TV series, the survivors arrive at Hershel’s Farm, where we will meet Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson), a vet (as in a veterinarian); his daughter, Maggie (Lauren Cohan); and Otis (Pruitt Taylor Vince), the middle-aged ranch foreman who’s such a sweetheart that he all but loses it when he accidentally shoots a fellow survivor. The new cast members join series regulars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Sarah Wayne Callies as Lori Grimes, Jon Bernthal as Shane Walsh, Laurie Holden as Andrea, Jeffrey DeMunn as Dale, Steven Yeun as Glenn, and Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes.
The second season will consist of a 13-episode arc and will premiere this Fall on AMC.
