AMC announced today that season 2 of "The Walking Dead" will kick off with an extra half hour on Sunday, October 16 at 9pm ET.
I got excited today when I opened my inbox and saw the press release about this from AMC. Now we have date and I cant wait. Tad bit earlier than I expected. I was half expecting like the week of Halloween.
I figured that's when it would start too...So I'm guessing we'll get half the season leading to Christmas and the other half in Jan/Feb?
Yea, pretty much. The release I got says we'll get 6 episodes after the season premiere. Then 6 more later on for the season finale on February 12th. So, we're looking at episodes on: October 16th (Season Premiere 90mins) October 23rd October 30th November 6th November 13th November 20th November 27th January 8th January 15th January 22nd January 29th February 5th February 12th (Season Finale) They also state that the Kevin Smith produced show "Secret Stash" (unscripted series about Kevin's comic book shop) will begin airing in conjunction with the February 12th airing of Walking Dead.
I would be excited, but I know that they'll just fill the time with loads of pointless stuff. Here's someone having a bath. Here's someone eating breakfast. Here's some people talking for 5 mins. Zombie time. Here's some people talking for 5 mins. Zombie time. I HOPE they don't drag it like that.
Nice - thanks for that tip.
Wasn't there more than 13 episodes last year or did it just seem that way because of the way they split it up?
Actually, weren't there only like six episodes?
Only 6 episodes last season.
I'm gonna have to buy season 1... I really tried to watch the show but I always forgot to... I watched the first three I think.
I guess it just seemed longer to me.
