AMC‘s The Walking Dead is a great zombie TV series. The show has been officially nominated for three Emmy Awards. The Walking Dead has been nominated specifically for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup, Outstanding Visual Effects and Outstanding Sound Editing for the second year in a row no less. The Walking Dead will be returning to AMC with new episodes this upcoming October 14, 2012. I am so excited to see the new episodes and can’t wait to see the new zombie special effects for the older more gruesome looking walking dead.
