For fans of The Walking Dead, February 12 cannot come fast enough. After what many though was a lackluster first season, the whole team at AMC really stepped it up for the first half of the second season. The writing improved tremendously and the seven episodes that have aired so far included some of the most memorable moments of any series last year, with Shane and Otis as well as Rick and Sophie coming to mind. The mid-season finale, "Pretty Much Dead Already," was gripping, heartbreaking and tremendously visceral television and made the wait only that much harder.

The network has already released a few promotional videos for the upcoming second half of the season, most of which directly pertain to the first new episode called "Nebraska." After watching all the promos filter out, it seems like the series will continue to get better and ratchet up the conflicts between the various survivors, since, as Kirkman's source material suggests, the humans are almost always more dangerous than the walkers. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and occasionally having to shoot a little girl, sorry a little walker, in the face.

The latest preview for The Walking Dead does a really impressive job of mixing the obviously more exciting moments of the series - guns and walkers galore - with the those that dwell in the existential crises that arises as a result of the outbreak. "There is no hope... and you know it now." Oh, and before you jump into the preview, one last piece of interesting news that may shape your Walking Dead viewing experience is (SPOLIER?) that Jon Bernthal, who plays Shane, is being sought for the lead role in Frank Darabont's new L.A. Noir pilot at FX. What would that mean for Shane? Well, those who have read the comics know that his destiny has already changed, so really anything can happen. Enjoy the preview.



The Walking Dead returns Sunday, February 12 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC. It stars Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal and Sarah Wayne Callies. It was created by Frank Darabont and based on the graphic novels by Robert Kirkman.
