The most anticipated television event of the year returns for a second season. AMC's The Walking Dead is "breathtaking in its small moments" (Wall Street Journal) and "creepy from the first frame" (Variety). The end of civilization was just the beginning for Rick Grimes and the other survivors. As the fight to stay alive intensifies and personal rivalries continue to fuel, the group struggles to hold on to their humanity in a time where slim chances are all that is left. Based on Robert Kirkman's hugely successful and popular comic book series, AMC's original series, The Walking Dead is an epic, edge-of-your-seat drama where personal struggles are magnified against a backdrop of moment-to-moment crisis. A survivalist story at its core, the series explores how the living are changed by the overwhelming realization that those who survive can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth. They themselves have become the walking dead.
