Walking Dead Season 2 Images Released

With filming well underway on season two of The Walking Dead, AMC has released two production stills to raise the show’s profile prior to its autumn release.

They don’t exactly give away any major plot developments, unless AMC is trying to subtly tell us everyone is dead and the next season will simply be random shots of zombies milling about. However, that’s highly unlikely as the show’s producers have already confirmed there will be at least three new (human) characters.

Series creator (and Shawshank screenwriter) Frank Darabont also issued a statement to tell us how much he loves everyone involved in his show:

“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. Across the board, there are none better. It’s great to be shooting again. I think we’ve embarked on a great season.â€?

The first shot is reminiscent of the last day of a festival; everyone has dead eyes (most likely from taking too many pills, powders and alcohol) and appears to be trudging towards what I’m going to assume is a car park. In fact, considering the sights often seen during some festivals these ‘zombies’ are in pretty good nick.

The second is more like Zombie deliverance, although if you look closely, it kind of looks as if they’re waiting for you to catch up. Perhaps these are helpful zombies, showing the survivors from the first season how to get through their secret zombie pass to safety.
