"The Walking Dead" Season 2 Netflix premiere has been announced for Sept. 30.
The long awaited third season of the horror based series will begin airing on Oct. 14, so Netflix users have just enough time to catch up for the premiere.
Season 2 begins after the series main character Rick and his group escaped from the CDC (Center for Disease Control). It was set ablaze by another character named Dr. Jenner, who gave up on finding a cure for the massive outbreak that had turned most of America's citizens into flesh-eating zombies.
Rick and his group find refuge on a small farm after his son was accidentally shot during the search for another child in their group named Sophia. The rest of the season follows the main characters through their time on this farm.
AMC aired webisodes of "The Walking Dead" in between season's 1 and 2 and the station is expected to do the same during the next few weeks before season 3 starts on Oct. 14. AMC still has the webisodes from the previous seasons available on its website. However, there have not been any confirmations of this happening.
"The Walking Dead" is based on a graphic novel series created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.
The television series stars Andrew Lincoln as sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who wakes up after being in a coma to find out that the world he once knew to be a safe place is now dominated by zombie-like creatures known as "walkers."
Grimes sets out to find his missing son and wife and encounters many new survivors of this zombie-apocalypse along the way.
The series has been nominated for various awards from organizations like the Writers Guild of America. The show was also was nominated for a Golden Globe award.
