It was announced back last October that AMC would be taking it's hit zombie series 'The Walking Dead' into a third season but now its official and we learn that the new season will contain 16 more epsiodes of the fantastic and thoroughly entertaining series for the cable channel. The show, based on the Image Comics graphic novel series by Robert Kirkman, has been heralded by its audience and critics alike and we're all looking forward to the conclusion of season two which is currently on its mid-season break. Andrew Lincoln ('Love Actually'), Jon Bernthal, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey DeMunn, Laurie Holden ('Silent Hill'), Steven Yeun, Sarah Wayne Callies ('Prison Break') and Lauren Cohan ('Supernatural') all star in the second season will return on 12 February.
"'The Walking Dead' follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The comic goes on to explore the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies who take a toll on the survivors, and sometimes the interpersonal conflicts present a greater danger to their continuing survival than the zombies that roam the country. Over time, the characters are changed by the constant exposure to death and some grow willing to do anything to survive."
