On Monday, AMC will premier a six-episode web series to help hold fans of The Walking Dead over a little longer until the second season of the show gets underway in a couple of weeks. The webisodes explore the back story of Hannah (Lilli Birdsell), who is better known on the series as “bird girl”, the zombie from season one who was shot by Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) in the pilot. How did Hannah become a zombie and what was her life like before zombie-hood? These webisodes will reveal her journey.
The webisodes were conceived and directed by The Walking Dead Co-Executive Producer, Greg Nicotero. View the webisodes staring Monday, October 3 at 2 PM at amctv.com.
The second season of The Walking Dead starts on October 16 with a 90 minute episode (airing at 9 PM ET/PT). Six one-hour episodes will follow. The final six episodes of the season will begin on Sunday, February 12 at ET/PT.
