AMC’s “The Walking Dead” debuts first trailer online

Pin it

This trailer for The Walking Dead, AMC's upcoming drama/horror based of the comic book series by Robert Kirkman, first premiered at ComicCon, but now it's finally been released to the general public, and it doesn't disappoint. There are so many things that excite me about this project. For one thing, the idea that AMC of all places is going to produce a TV show about zombies is amazing. The station is at least two for three when it comes to original series (though I've heard good things about Rubicon), and I love the idea a show like Mad Men living on the same network as The Walking Dead.

For another, the show's creators have promised to stay very true to the original comic, which is almost always a good move. It helps that the original material is pretty damn good. (Well, technically, I think it was really good, until it wasn't. But that's probably a thought for another time.)

One final thing before I get to the video itself: some of those zombies look fucking gross. I seriously cannot wait for the series premier:

I love that music choice. The Walking Dead starts this October, just in time to help inspire your zombie Halloween costumes.
