The first official image from the second season of Walking Dead is out, showing off some new undead make up tricks. While the zombies look impressively gruesome, we're wondering if the new yellow-eyed look is the first of many changes?
In a press release sent out from AMC, Executive Writer/Producer Frank Darabont had this to say about filming season 2:
At this moment, I'm standing on a stretch of post-apocalypse interstate in Georgia, littered with abandoned cars and blessing my good luck to be reunited with our amazing cast, and our fantastic directors and crew. Across the board, there are none better. It's great to be shooting again. I think we've embarked on a great season.
Nothing like good carnage report from our favorite horror series. And we have to admit, the new image looks fantastic... but what's going on with that one "geek's" eyeballs? Does she have some sort of wild zombie disease? We know the Walking Dead's undead sport a pair of cloudy smoke eyes, but this yellow look is 100% new to us. Could there be a strange zombie rabies virus spreading about? Are the undead going to get some crazed 28 Days Later rage virus in season 2? Or perhaps this is just another example of Walking Dead's creatively disturbing make-up? Only time and set leaks will tell.
