When we last left the The Walking Dead, the characters were in the midst of a high-intensity struggle to survive, fleeing the CDC as it burst into flames.
In Season 2, they are still on the move, facing more threats and obstacles than ever. Led by a remarkable ensemble cast and crew, Season 2 premieres with a 70-minute episode.
Based on one of the most successful and popular comic books of all time, written by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead captures the ongoing human drama following a zombie apocalypse.
The series follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, who are traveling in search of a safe and secure home. However, instead of the zombies, it is the living who remain that truly become the walking dead.
Jon Bernthal plays Shane Walsh, Rick's sheriff's department partner before the apocalypse, and Sarah Wayne Callies is Rick's wife, Lori Grimes.
Additional cast include Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey DeMunn, Chandler Riggs, Iron E. Singleton and Melissa McBride. Guest stars include Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson and Pruitt Taylor Vince.
Season 2 premiered on FX on Tuesday 18 October 2011, at 21h15, beginning with a 70-minute special episode. It went on hiatus after seven episodes to accommodate a similar hiatus in the USA and resumed with Episode 8 on Tuesday 14 February 2012, at 21h15.
