The eagerly awaited second season of THE WALKING DEAD has now officially begun shooting in Atlanta, and AMC have just released the first set pic to prove it!
Sweet! That's my new desktop wallpaper sorted.
[Update: Second pic has just been released...
Excellent makeup work from Nicotero as always. But did their eyes look that funky in the first season? I don't remember.]
Show runner Frank Darabont had this to say: "At this moment, I'm standing on a stretch of post-apocalypse interstate in Georgia, littered with abandoned cars and blessing my good luck to be reunited with our amazing cast, and our fantastic directors and crew."
It's been a rocky road through pre-production for all involved - rumours of mass firings amongst the writing staff; bizarro budget cuts (wasn't the first season AMC's most successful show ever?!) - so it's great to see everything is now up and running (or should that be shambling?)
October cannot come soon enough!
