The Walking Dead season 2?

When is the next season coming out, I started watching it on rte in may and was surprised there was only 6 episodes But i cant wait for season 2,one of my favourite shows. So when is season 2 coming out? also does anybody know about new characters,story lines any new info released about season 2 ,?thank you.
Also Im just wondering what other people think of the show,some of my friends watch it and my whole family do and everyone who has seen it thinks its great.I did hear that some people think the show went downhill a bit after bout first 3 episodes, ye Ill admit the first 4 were very good but I thought 5 and 6 although good were more boring. So what does everyone else think of the show,will you watch season 2,your critiscisms,praise etc.I was also wondering if the show is very popular like glee,the wire sopranos kind of popular? And how many people in the world watch it including all english speaking countries its shown in ,not just usa. inc uk,ireland,aussie,nz,canada etc
thanks.

Started off good, ended up really poor. If this is your favourite show off all time then I feel sorry for you.

Season 2 (13 episodes) is shooting now, and will air in October in the States. RTÉ will show it some time next year at 3 in the morning.

+1. Very disappointing over all. It became a clichéd soap opera all too often, rife with stereotypes. I always cheered the zombies when they (all too rarely) appeared.

This one scene summarises how ludicrous the show became..



Hoping for better things from season 2!

Can't see season 2 being great tbh, first two episodes were decent though in fairness. Got fairly crap though.

It wasn't great but if you love post-apocalyptic stuff anyway, you'll watch it. I'll be watching season 2 from the shower.

Heya bb,

I love that show as well. Its just a shame theres not more zombies in it!
They have a good facebook page which has a lot of info about the show (backstage pictures, interviews with the actors etc.)
http://www.facebook.com/TheWalkingDeadAMC

I was watching FX the other day and they've started advertising the second series. Theres no specific date yet but its coming soon

It's ludicrous because it's about as subtle as a punch in the face.

Equally ludicrous was that crap with the grenade in the last episode. Who carries a grenade in their handbag? Even in a zombie apocalypse scenario that is some lazy cba writing.

Anybody who thinks this show is the best thing ever should read the comics its based on and reevaluate .

Cheesy actors, littered with cliches, stereotypes, predictable.........

Still though, if you like the zombie genre then you'll like this.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the next series, but i'm a zombie fan

I'm waiting for the program that combines all the awesomeness into one show: zombies; vampires; warewolves; pirates; vikings and....ninjas!
