Given the ubiquity of zombie films, it was impressive to say the least that The Walking Dead managed to inject fresh life (sorry) into the genre, albeit on the small screen which necessarily gives more space for developing better fleshed-out (sorry) character arcs and mythology. At a tight and pacy six episodes, season one was gripping, visceral, affecting stuff and left all of us hungry for more (last time, I promise).

If IMDb is to be believed, we’re looking at 13 episodes for season 2 and so I have everything crossed, hoping it won’t result in a dilution of quality, or a dearth of good ideas. The US will see it in the autumn and presumably we in the UK will get it, as before, on F/X and then Channel 5.

Collider have posted a trailer for season 2, though it describes it as a fan teaser. Who knows? It looks good, that’s all I’ll say for the time being. We’ve had a poster to feast on already (okay, maybe one more), with some troublingly funky looking eyes and this teaser gives us precious little else to go on, other than the blessed assurance that season 2 is on the way and we don’t have long to wait.

Roll on autumn.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
