"The Walking Dead" is showing its first signs of life once again.
A surprise breakout hit in its first season, AMC debuted a first clip from the show's second go-round in front of their hotly anticipated "Breaking Bad" season premiere on Sunday night. And needless to say, they haven't let up on the creepy brutality one iota.
County Sheriff Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, is at his survival-at-all-costs best in the clip, putting a couple of zombies in their place with prehistoric tools in a post-apocalyptic world. According to series creator Robert Kirkman, who spoke with Collider in April, there's a lot more where that came from in season two.
"There is all kinds of crazy stuff that is coming up. I'm really excited," he told the website. "I mean, you get 8 guys that like zombies that know they are doing a T.V. show like 'The Walking Dead,' and they know that you can get away with the kind of things that we got away with on the first season. It really becomes just an effort to just find that thing that AMC is going to make us change."
The show returns in October, so enjoy this clip and the likely trickle of teasers and trailers that will come in its wake.
