The Walking Dead’s Second Season Will Be Split in Two

Zombie killer, qu'est-ce que c'est.

The Walking Dead's second season will air in two chunks, AMC announced today, with seven episodes airing this fall and the following six not airing until February. Oh boy, the universally loathed yet necessary cable scheduling model, how we've missed you. The Walking Dead returns October 16 with a 90-minute season premiere, and its winter run kicks off February 12. That season finale should put us right around the premiere of Mad Men, which makes programming sense for AMC if not emotional fan sense for zombie enthusiasts.
