The Walking Dead Webisodes Reveal the Origin of the Half-Zombie

Zombies in The Walking Dead Season 2

Ahead of the show’s October 16th Season 2 premiere, AMC has released a half dozen short webisodes, about 3 minutes each, that tells the origins of the show’s most famous zombie — the half-zombie that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) runs across early in the pilot episode, and then mercifully puts out of its misery.

This story, made exclusively for the web and directed by Greg Nicotero, tells the tale of one of The Walking Dead’s most iconic walkers. In episode one Hannah awakens to find her kids missing after a violent car accident.
