"The Walking Dead," AMC's post-apocalyptic horror series, was the breakout television show of 2010.

Fans lamented when it was announced the show wouldn't be returning until late 2011. Now, they have a Season 2 premiere date (October 16th) and an extended trailer, which just premiered at Comic-Con. Watch it below (warning, graphic content):

The trailer picks up from the Season 1 finale, where a small band is trying to flee a zombie-infested Atlanta. It appears there will be dissension in the ranks, and when the group is attacked by a large mob of zombies on a freeway with nowhere to go, carnage ensues.
