“The Walking Dead” may not be returning to AMC until Oct. 16, but fans won’t need to wait that long to get a little dose of zombie drama. AMC will release 6 webisodes on Monday, Oct.. 3 at 2 p.m. ET.
The webisodes will focus on one character, Hannah — better known as “Bicycle Girl” to fans of the show. In the series pilot, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) shoots Hannah to put her out of her misery. We’ll learn about Hannah’s life before the zombie-pocalypse — about her family and how she ended up a walker.
The webisode storyline is, like much of the show, original material — totally different from Robert Kirkman’s comic books. Though, it helps to have Kirkman on board as an executive producer.
The new shorts are directed by fellow co-executive producer and make-up genius Greg Nicotero.
