'The Walking Dead' webisodes set for Oct. 3 release

walking-dead-bicycle-girl-greg-nicotero.jpg"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.
