Five New, Corpse Rotting Walking Dead Images

AMC have released five new images from their upcoming “The Walking Dead” TV series. Who doesn’t like a good old fashioned zombie TV show? Has there ever been a zombie TV show? Not that I recall. Yeah, let’s go with that answer.

The Walking Dead tells the story of life following a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home. Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually, Teachers, Strike Back) will portray the lead role of Rick Grimes while actor Jon Bernthal (The Pacific, The Ghost Writer) will portray the character Shane, who worked with Rick in the police department before the zombie disaster. Other cast includes Laurie Holden (The Shield), who plays Andrea, one of two sisters who join the survivors of the zombie plague, Steven Yeun as Glenn, an expert scavenger and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), who plays Rick’s wife Lori.

Starring Emma Bell, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey DeMunn, Linds Edwards, Laurie Holden, Andrew Lincoln, Adrian Kali Turner, Sarah Wayne Callies, Steven Yeun, with the pilot directed by producer Frank Darabont.

Shuffling onto TV tubes this October.
