AMC offered up the first look at Season 2 of “The Walking Dead” on Sunday night (July 17), and the situation for Rick Grimes has not really improved.
It’s quiet, it’s gruesome, and it’s kind of awesome.
The 60-second promo that aired during “Breaking Bad’s” season premiere shows Rick (Andrew Lincoln) in the woods, unarmed and stalked by a pair of zombies. Unarmed with a gun, that is: It turns out he’s pretty deadly with a large rock in his hand too.
Like some of the best scenes in Season 1, the teaser contains no dialogue — just ambient sounds, Rick’s labored breathing and some rather squishy rock-against-head noise. The show used silence to great effect last year, and by doing so again here we’re drawn right back in.
“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC in October. What do you think of the teaser?
