Waking up in an empty hospital after weeks in a coma, County Sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) finds himself utterly alone. The world as he knows it is gone, ravaged by a zombie epidemic. The Walking Dead is an epic, edge-of-your-seat drama where personal struggles are magnified against a backdrop of moment-to-moment survival. A survivalist story at its core, the series explores how the living are changed by the overwhelming realization that those who survive can be far more dangerous that the mindless walkers roaming the earth. They themselves have become the walking dead.
Just this past Sunday, on Halloween, AMC debuted their new zombie-inspired series adapted by Frank Darabont (director of The Shawshank Redemption
and The Green Mile
) from the comic books of the same name. Now Amazon has ALREADY begun taking pre-orders for a release of The Walking Dead - Season 1
! This listing is prior to Anchor Bay Entertainment's official announcement for the title, though, so instead of a street date Amazon only says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
" Pricing is available, though, currently showing for just $39.98 SRP (you can, of course, lock in your copy right away at a discounted price, if you order it using the link above). There are no other details available so far at Amazon's entry, nor is there cover art yet (just a temporary promo shot). Nor is Amazon taking pre-orders for a Blu-ray version yet; a listing
for that only lets you sign up to be notified if one comes along. However, Anchor Bay is pretty good about releasing high-def BD versions of currently-airing shows, so we hope to bring you word about that in the future! Stay tuned, and we'll update you further on this title just as soon as developments occur. Our thanks to reader Fabian Schwarz for the heads-up!
