If you’re a fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead, you were probably alarmed when it show-runner and series producer Frank Darabont decided to “gut” the entire writing staff at the end of last season — I know I was. Well, the second season is almost upon us with its October 16th premiere fast-approaching, and we’ve had no indication to date as to how the changes will affect the series moving forward. That said, AMC plans on releasing an entire webseries on October 2nd that will serve as a lead-in for the new season, and that might be our first opportunity to see just how the series will shape up from here on out. It should be noted that Darabont himself did contribute to last seasons writing and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

From the looks of things, the webseries will be centered around the character of Hannah — the bicycle girl-turned-zombie from the first season — and should delve into her background a bit. We’ll be seeing more of her life from before and lead up to the infestation as she attempts to protect her family from the dangers of the epidemic. You’ll be able to stream every episode via the network’s official website, amctv.com.
