15 Fall TV Shows to Watch in 2012

Fall Arts Preview 2012

The Walking Dead

Sunday, Oct. 14, AMC

AMC’S SURPRISE HIT is not for the squeamish or the nervous. If you can stomach a show that deals with the survivors of a zombie apocalypse, however, you’re in for a treat. At times a personal drama, at times outright horror, it is also a show about dealing with life in the absence of order. Beloved by its fans, it has proven a critical and commercial success for AMC.

Season 3 will take even more inspiration from the comic book source material, and will deal with the fallout from Rick’s revelation at the end of the last season, as well as the group’s immediate danger at the prison they have found themselves in. It will also introduce “The Governor,” leader of the settlement at Woodbury, who is more than a little insane. If you’ve been infected (get it?) by The Walking Dead’s charm, be sure to tune in this October.
