AMC's hit zombie series The Walking Dead returns in October and I must say that I'm pretty excited. "Pretty," because a.) I wasn't too thrilled with the way the first season ended, although I understand that it was a shortened season and they had to make do, and b.) I'm way too enthralled in the final episodes of Breaking Bad to even think about another TV show right now.

But as soon as Breaking Bad wraps up for the season, I'll be all-the-way thrilled. Zombie survival scenarios just continue to amuse me, no matter how many I watch or read.

If you are a big Walking Dead fan, you'll be happy to know that AMC has produced a series of webisodes set to launch two weeks before the season 2 premiere.

According to AMC, the webisodes will tell the story of Hannah, the poor, crawling half-zombie that Rick kills out of pity at the end of the pilot episode. From their blog -

The webisodes will give fans the opportunity to explore the back story of Hannah (Lilli Birdsell), better known as "Bicycle Girl," the infamous zombie from Season 1, who was shot by Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) in the pilot episode and who is one of the most celebrated "walkers" from last season. Fans will learn about Hannah's life before the apocalypse, her struggle to survive and protect her family as the world begins to fall apart, and her ultimate demise into zombie-hood.

The web series will consists of 6 episodes that will all be available at the same time. They will launch on October 3rd at 2 pm EST.

To get you excited, here's the latest trailer for the upcoming season 2 -

And just for fun, here's one of the best scenes from season 1. You know how to fool a zombie, right? If you don't, you'll know after this (gross as hell) clip -

Season 2 will debut on October 16th at 9 pm EST with a 90-minute episode. Unfortunately, it will be split up into two parts - 6 more episodes following the premiere and then a break, followed by 6 episodes beginning on February 12th.
