The series Variety called "creepy from the first frame" gets a release on Blu-ray and DVD that will make the dead rise!

A truly unique and very limited edition zombie head case created and designed by McFarlane Toys will also be available as Limited Edition Blu-ray only for a SRP of $99.99. Pre-book is August 1st.

The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray is the much anticipated next chapter to the acclaimed post zombie apocalypse series. When we last left the The Walking Dead, the characters were in the midst of a high-intensity struggle to survive, fleeing the CDC as it burst into flames. In Season 2, they are still fighting zombies, and each other, facing more threats and obstacles than ever before.
Based on the hugely successful and popular comic books, written by Robert Kirkman, AMC's The Walking Dead captures the ongoing human drama after a zombie apocalypse. The series follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, who are traveling in search of a safe and secure home. However, instead of the zombies, it's the living who still remain that may be the biggest threat. Jon Bernthal plays Shane Walsh, Rick's sheriff's department partner before the apocalypse, and Sarah Wayne Callies, is Rick's wife, Lori.
The Walking Dead: The Complete Second Season cast also includes Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey DeMunn, Chandler Riggs, IronE Singleton and Melissa Suzanne McBride. Guest stars for the second season include Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson and Pruitt Taylor Vince.
The Walking Dead is a hit with both audiences and critics. The Walking Dead Season 1 won the Emmy® Award for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Miniseries, Movie or Special and was nominated for Emmys® in Outstanding Sound Editing for a Series and Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Series. The Walking Dead Season 1 also garnered a Golden Globe® nomination for Best Television Series - Drama, and was named to the American Film Institute's (AFI) Top 10 Programs of the Year (2010), among other accolades.
The Walking Dead Season 3 premieres on AMC in October.
