The Walking Dead news

2010's greatest show, and a geek dream 7 years in the making, is now halfway through it's criminally short first season. If you haven't seen it yet, get caught up!

Now for fans, here's the facts:

- The show WILL be back for a second season.
- Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) may be creditted as the man behind the show, but he only wrote the first 3 episode and directed the first.
- Writing and directing is handled by a myriad of others, including the original comic book writer and creator Robert Kirkman, who wrote episode 4.
- While season 1 lasted only 6 episodes, season 2 will be a bumper 13 episodes long.
- Frank Darabont will be back for season 2, and aims to follow the comic's general tone and feel, meaning a darker, tougher season 2 that takes into account the reality of a post-apocalyptic life.

- *spoiler* - Michonne should be appearing in early season 2. For those not in the know, she's a bad-ass sword wielding chick and fan favourite character in the comics.
