Let’s admit it: we love zombies. And this weekend we’ll be able to indulge in America’s No. 1 guilty pleasure with AMC’s The Walking Dead marathon, a prelude to the show’s anticipated third season premiering this August.
For those who haven’t been infected by Walking Dead fever yet, the post-apocalyptic drama television series – developed for television by Frank Darabont and based on the comic book series The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard – is starred by Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually, Heartbreaker) as sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who wakes up after being in a coma to find the world dominated by "walkers."
And The Walking Dead Season 3 would provide American zombie-hungry audiences -- who, apparently, haven't had enough with the real life episodes of cannibalism and zombie-like behavior caused by the now infamous bath salts drug -- with even more gruesome and disgusting episodes full of decaying and decomposing creatures (human or otherwise), and plenty of missing body parts and autonomous grabbing hands that will sure delight those of us who daydream with that anticipated zombie apocalypse. Someday.
