AMC has released the gripping trailer for the network's highly anticipated series, “The Walking Dead,” and it's got us counting down the days to the show's Halloween premiere.
Those of you who were lucky enough to attend Comic-Con have already born witness to the expected awesomeness of this show, but for everyone else, "The Walking Dead" is AMC's latest creation, based on the comics crafted by Robert Kirkman. "The Green Mile" and “Shawshank Redemption” director Frank Darabont is sitting at the helm of this grisly, hour-long series.
The trailer opens with a pair of ominous birds, and then the backstory unfolds of how police officer Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, finds himself living among the dead. We won’t spoil the entire trailer for you, but we will say this: the tension is rife within the four and a half minutes AMC provides.
Sit back and enjoy over at AMCTV.com. Did the trailer give you chills? The first episode - which will be 90 minutes instead of 60, as are the rest of the season's episodes - will debut at 10 p.m. on October 31.
