‘The Walking Dead’ Season 2: First Look Photo

From AMC this afternoon:

“… a ‘first look’ photo from season two of its critically acclaimed original drama, The Walking Dead, currently in production in the greater Atlanta area. The hit series’ second season includes 13 episodes, and premieres this fall.

Executive Producer/Writer/Director Frank Darabont says, ‘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.’
