Check out photographer David Strick's behind-the-scenes photos from the Atlanta set of AMC's The Walking Dead Season 2, which debuts October 16. Don't be put off by the zombies--as adapted for cable by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) season one of The Walking Dead was one of the best-written and mounted cable series of the year. It remains to be seen if producer Gale Ann Hurd (Comic-Con interview here) and the rest of the team will be able to maintain that quality without Darabont, who was fired from the series.

Like Steven Spielberg's Falling Skies and Terra Nova, the show deals with how human families rise to the occasion of fighting for their survival against serious threats--whether zombies, aliens or dinosaurs. Walking Dead was by far the best of the lot. We'll see if that's still true.
