The Hollywood Reporter recently added
to the anticipation building for Sunday’s premiere of The
Walking Dead’s second season with a collection of behind the
scenes photos taken during filming in Atlanta. The pics include
cast, crew, and sets from the hit AMC series and were shot by David
Strick. Capturing some candid moments, the majority of the
photographs were snapped while the cameras weren’t rolling.
Special effects artist(and consulting
producer), Greg Nicotero’s Emmy winning work is on display in several
of the shots, and despite budget cuts the “Walkers” still look as
beautifully gruesome as they did in the first season. If only being
undead meant you didn’t feel the heat from the Atlanta sun.
The Walking Dead has kept it’s
name in the headlines over the past few months, though most of it
wasn’t good news. After tense negotiations over the budget led to
AMC firing Frank Darabont from his role as showrunner, it seemed that
the network was determined to derail its most successful series.
Though Glen Mazzara was quickly called on to fill his shoes, AMC
caused another, albeit smaller, stir by splitting season two in half,
meaning fans would again only get six episodes this fall.
The second season of The Walking
Dead premieres with a 90-minute episode on Sunday, October 16th,
at 9PM EST.
