AMC is quite committed to The Walking Dead and its universe, and if the series was your cash cow, you would be, too. The zombie drama is set to kick off its fourth season on October 13, with the bragging rights to being the number-one scripted show on TV among the all-important 18-49 demographic, a spin-off in the works, and two show-inspired video games (one good, one terrible) to its name.
To keep that universe expanding, AMC has released a new The Walking Dead web series called "The Oath," and it focuses on two survivors running away from their problems (their problems = zombies). It was directed by producer/effects guru Greg Nicotero, and the three-parter totals about 25 minutes of runtime. Or you could just jump ahead to the end and see the origin of one of the most memorable images from the pilot episode.
The TV show version of The Walking Dead returns for Season 4 on October 13 at 9pm on AMC.
