Early word on 13-episode run
Three episodes to go until The Walking Dead exits AMC, closing out its first season (I suspect it’ll be a doozy of a cliffhanger).
Don’t fear, a second season is on the way. AMC has given season two the green light and, today, insiders are telling The Hollywood Reporter we probably won’t see it hit the small screen until next October.
Perfectly understandable. There are 13 episodes to produce next year, as opposed to six, and production hasn’t even begun yet. Plus, you have to take into account AMC’s other slate of television shows.
THR added in their news item that Frank Darabont will likely slip back into the director’s chair again, too.
