Premiering this fall on AMC, The Walking Dead season one only has a 6-episode commitment, but there have been reports that the network has intentions for the show to carry on beyond the mini-first season. This news basically confirms that.
AMC is running a contest for fans to win a spot as an extra on Season 2 of the show:
Ever dreamed of being a zombie? Now’s your chance, with AMC’s The Walking Dead Sweepstakes. Submit the online form and you’ll be entered in a random drawing to win a four-day, three-night trip to the location of The Walking Dead’s Season 2 production, plus the opportunity to become one of the undead in a Season 2 episode of The Walking Dead. (Exact specifics of the walk-on role will be determined at the producer’s sole discretion.)
Pretty cool right? Now there’s always the possibility that the show doesn’t perform well enough in the ratings to secure a second season, but there’s no need to worry about that right now. The contest runs through August 15. Click here to enter.
The Walking Dead premieres October 2010 on AMC.
