Got your zombie survival kit handy? Good. Now toss it in the trash, because nothing can save you from the return of The Walking Dead.
Premiering Sunday, the zombie apocalypse show’s second season is twice as long (13 episodes versus its original six)—and twice as terrifying.
Here’s what star Jon Bernthal told us about TWD‘s “very high-octane action-packed premiere”…and what happens next:
“It gets very, very dangerous, very, very fast” for Bernthal’s Shane and his dwindling group of survivors, on the run again after their temporary sanctuary at the CDC blows up in their faces.
But as Shane’s desperate assault on Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies)—his lover before her husband and his best friend Rick (Andrew Lincoln) rejoined them—shows, zombies aren’t the greatest threat.
“They’ll always be a threat, but it’s a [manageable ] threat,” says Bernthal. “What will prove to be the real danger for this group of survivors is the evilness that exists in the human condition—things like jealousy and rage and shame and guilt…Human beings will make decisions that will prove far more dangerous than any zombies.”
