When we first found out that we were only going to be getting a six episode first season, I was in a mixed bag. I thought that it deserved a 18 episode season, but I also understood AMC’s position and why they only wanted to experiment with a 6 season first episode. Well rumblings have been going around about AMC already ordering a second season for The Walking Dead, and frankly I’m not surprised. Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd says that they’re going to expand to a 13 episode season. With that from Hurd; Frank Darabont telling us his plans for season 2, and the massive buzz behind the trailer, I’ll be honestly shocked if AMC doesn’t pick this up for a second season. Which now might not be the case.
Thanks to Fangoria and their insiders, we’re getting word that The Walking Dead season 2 will begin to film in February of 2011. No time is set on when (if) season 2 will air.
AMC has contacted The Walking Dead Podcast in order to let us know that this rumor is just that, a rumor. Sorry for any confusion that this may have caused the fans. However, as soon as we have an official confirmation of a second season you can be sure that we will be one of the first ones to report it.
