AMC’s zombie-infested new series The Walking Dead has just dropped the first 2 photos from it’s much-anticipated second season, which is coming to us in an achingly far away October 2011. Based on the graphic novel series by Robert Kirkman and created by Frank Darabont,  The Walking Dead follows police officer Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) as he and his band of survivors try to stay alive in the post-apocalyptic zombie infestation.

Coming from someone who is pretty satisfied with the cheesy zombie make-up from the George A. Romero flicks, the detail of the dead in these photos gets me so pumped I want to jump on my Xbox and play Left 4 Dead for 8 straight hours with NO BATHROOM BREAKS. Check out the new pics below!
