'The Walking Dead' season 2 trailer is here!

AMC’s The Walking Dead season 2 trailer has arrived! It’s more than four minutes. It’s fantastic. Very intense. It’s below.

But first: Premiere date announced! At Comic-Con, The Walking Dead panel just announced the second season will debut Sunday, October 16 at 9 p.m. — a couple weeks earlier than last year and at a different time. They also revealed the season will open with our heroes fleeing the Center for Disease Control — no time jump.

“There’s an expectation now,” says creator Robert Kirkman. “First season, nobody knew what was coming. I can say it’s made everybody work harder. It’s empowered us to try harder. We’re taking that seriously and really trying to deliver.”

Here’s the must-see trailer:

Here’s more from the panel:

– Showrunner Frank Darabont: “We also have writers that are really fans of it. The first six episodes, nobody knew what the hell they were dealing with except me.”

– “You start to realize the most dangerous things out there are the monsters inside,” says Sarah Wayne Callies.

– “The Walking Dead fans are the most badass in the world. You’re the smartest, you’re the best and we want to feed you,” says Jon Bernthal.

– “The writing so so superb. Every script is gold,” says Laurie Holden about season two.

– “I get to run around with a crossbow shooting zombies,” says Norman Reedus, on the best part of being on the show.

– Robert Kirkman on what he would do in the zombie apocalypse: “I would kill myself. I don’t have any urge to do that, but I’ve been writing about this for so long … I’d jump off a bridge. People come up to me and say, ‘I’d hole up in a school’ … no you wouldn’t. You’d be somebody’s pet, because the whole world would turn into prison.”

  • TopherGraceSucks

    I think we can all agree that thhe reason this show is great is that Topher Grace is not in it

    • Matt

      How dare you! Many people appreciate Topher Grace. Spider-Man 3 wasn’t his fault. I hope he finds success.

      Agreed. Topher Grace really does suck.

    • RCB

      I like Topher Grace and everybody in That 70’s Show.

    • Jacob

      Not that I’m a huge fan or anything, but Topher Grace was amazing in Predators.

    • Colin

      What exactly does Topher Grace have to do with the price of tea in China? I mean, what could be further off-topic?

    • Let’s Figh About It

      I think we can all agree that you are a douche bag.

      This trailer looks GREAT! Can’t wait to see it!

  • Mandy302

    It says October 16th

    • Bonnie

      They changed it. And deleted my comment alerting them to the fact that they had the wrong date. You’re welcome, EW.

      • Sophie

        Fair enough comemnt. I’ve never been a huge fan, only read his books because I’ve had to (ie for work), but he deserves praise for the change of pace he brought to the genre.

  • Via

    calm down, it premieres on october 16th ( a sunday) not october 13th

    • Lina

      Customer service is sncoed to none here at Friend Realty. They really listen to your needs and help you in every way they can. If you are selling/buying or renting in the area then you definitely won’t go wrong with Friend Realty’s help.

  • Syn

    The article says October 16th, not 13th.

  • Lauren

    They originally wrote October 13, but obviously made a mistake, and changed in to October 16. Who cares!

    Cannot wait to see this trailer!!

    • Lucy

      Exactly! now I have something to look forward to and forget about the heat wave!

  • Titus

    if they start on October 16th, that means that they will not finish up until February or so (if they take 2 weeks off for the Christmas holidays)…I’ve heard rumors that they are going to split Season 2 into 2 parts, one in the fall and the other in the Spring…anybody know is this is true?


    Ok…oct 16th a reminder to wipe my butt.

    • Maggie

      So that’s a once a year type thing for you?

  • Sean

    I love the the John Wayne-esque last shot in the trailer. Probably will hold some signifying purpose to The Searchers.

  • Lizzie

    Whats Topher Grace got to do with The Walking Dead??? also…..holy crapballs that was a good trailer!!

    • Nisey

      Holy crapballs indeed! Finally a relevant, positive comment about the trailer. I can’t wait for the show to return.

  • District 12

    This season is going to be amazing! I can’t wait for October to get here so we can see TWD and Dexter =)

  • david

    I watched the first season and I don’t want to be a hater or anything, but does anyone else think the cast of this show is really boring and uncharismatic compared to other ensemble shows..

    • Mike

      I can’t speak for anyone else. But for me? NO I don’t think that.

    • Devin “Badass Digest” Faraci


    • crispy

      I certainly don’t think they’re boring. But on the other hand, I can’t remember a single one of their names. So you may have a bit of a point. They are no Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Charlie, Locke, etc.

      • Matt1

        Lost is overrated and sucks balls!

      • daisy

        no worries Matt1, nobody will ever suck balls as well as you do

      • Cronus

        Rick, Shane, Lori, Cole, Daryl. Perhaps people don’t know the names that well because there were only 6 episodes?

    • trent

      sometimes, but who cares when they’re beating zombies to death?

    • J.

      Yes, I’m not really vested in their survival, but I do like the hick guy. He is the most interesting character if they develop him into a ‘gotyour back” kind of guy.

  • Jaime

    Shut up about the date people. Let’s talk about what is important – the trailer! LOOKS AMAZING and very suspenseful.

    • Terry

      Intense! I was holding my breath during most of it. I cannot wait for 10/16/11.

  • Flip

    How many episodes?

    • Mike


    • themusicaddict.blogspot.com

      I believe it’s going to be 13 episodes like most of AMC’s shows.

      • Nathan

        Glad its not just a measly 6 again. Wish we could just shoot right by the True Blood season and get to the good stuff.

  • mia

    Now THIS is a trailer! Awesomesauce.

  • muhahaha

    Yay!! Awesome trailer! I’m very excited for season 2!
