Get ready for 13 more episodes of The Walking Dead in its second season - but not until next October, it's been revealed...

We’re already past the half-way point for the terrific maiden season of The Walking Dead, which has been one of the clear television highlights of the year. And AMC, too, has already confirmed that there’s going to be a second season of the show.

The first season is running to just six episodes, of which the fourth screens in the US at the end of the week. However, the second season is set to be a longer thirteen episode run, although The Hollywood Reporter is now confirming that we’re going to have to wait a bit to see it.

For AMC is currently planning on leaving us waiting a year until season two screens, with it circling an October premiere once more for the start of the season. This isn’t a massive surprise, to be fair, but it had been hoped that AMC would look to bring the show back just a little sooner.

The report also states that Frank Darabont is set to write and direct another episode of the show next year, though. So that’s good news, anyway.
