The makers of “The Walking Dead” are still conducting a full-court press with the show, despite Season One ending and Season Two more than ten interminable months away. As well they should — “The Walking Dead” was a staggeringly popular hit, blowing ratings through the roof and far exceeding expectations. Which means that if they want to keep the momentum moving into next season, they’ll need to keep audiences interested during the show’s extended hiatus.
One of the ways they’re doing that is through a series of videos that AMC’s website is releasing. The one featured here, Inside “The Walking Dead” - A Look Ahead, is certainly an interesting one. Featuring show footage, and interview snippets with Producer Denise Huth. Executive Producer Frank Darabont, and writer/series creator Robert Kirkman — as well as cast members Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori), Jon Bernthal (Shane), and Laurie Holden (Andrea) — it’s a fun little glimpse into just how enthusiastic the show’s players are.
The questions they focus on are things like “will they find a cure” and “where are they going next,” and the answers given are pretty much, “maybe” and “who knows.” But that’s OK. It’s cool to see the cast’s take on their characters and the story itself, and I like that Kirkman doesn’t appear to be planning an ending any time soon.

October of 2011, huh?
