The Walking Dead and AMC have been doing an excellent job of keeping folks updated and entertained while we all wait for the second season to hit television. In the mean time, here’s the latest behind-the-scenes video featuring Writer/Director/Producer Frank Darabont, Andrew Lincoln (who plays Rick Grimes), Jon Bernthal (who plays Shane Walsh), Sarah Wayne Callies (who plays Lori Grimes) and Steven Yeun (who plays Glenn).
AMC has released the first image from the second season of their hit television series based on a comic book The Walking Dead.
The image also comes with a statement from producer Frank Darabont:
At this moment, I’m standing on a stretch of post-apocalypse interstate in Georgia, littered with abandoned cars and blessing my good luck to be reunited with our amazing cast, and our fantastic directors and crew. Across the board, there are none better. It’s great to be shooting again. I think we’ve embarked on a great season.
