I know this is two days early, but I figured some people might not have read the season two updates thread
yet would still like to know a couple of things before the premiere arrives.
The prequel webisode series Torn Apart
is online at the AMC website
. The series follows "Bicycle Girl" (whom Rick shot as a zombie at the end of the series premiere) after the zombie outbreak has started but prior to the events of the first episode.
In addition, this season AMC will be airing a half-hour talk show called The Talking Dead
. Hosted by Chris Hardwick (Nerdist
podcast, Web Soup
), the show premieres directly after Sunday's episode, then moves to its regular timeslot of Fridays at 11pm EST with its second episode.
A couple reminders:
- The season premiere will be 90 minutes long, and will be followed by six more episodes over the next six weeks. After that, the season will go on hiatus until it returns with the final six episodes starting February 12.
- If you're someone who hasn't watched the six episodes of season one but would like to before the season two premiere (or you just want a refresher) and are a Netflix subscriber, season 1 is available on Netflix Watch Instantly.
Let's see how well this group of survivors fares this season...
