This past month, we’ve seen quite a few photos from Frank Darabont‘s small screen adaptation of The Walking Dead. First we got a look at some of “the walkers” (aka zombies) in make-up, a first zombie production photo, another production photo showing Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, as well as some awesome set photos. More than enough to get us excited about the new television series. And now AMC has released another batch of photos (one of which was previously seen via an AICN set visit). Check them out now, after the jump.

When I last mentioned AMC, Robert Kirkman and Frank Darabont‘s The Walking Dead, it looked like Johnny Lee Miller was the favourite for the lead role. Now, whatever goes on behind the scenes went on and it seems that, in lieu of Mr. Miller, the production has plumped instead for Andrew Lincoln. Two groups of people this is very good news for: fans of Andrew Lincoln and viewers of The Walking Dead.
Lincoln’s breakthorugh here in the UK was in a show called This Life that I thought was a touch overrated if very well cast. He then went on to headline Teachers, a snappier, lighter confection and tall-tale spookfest Afterlife, both of which benefited hugely from his performance.
Here’s Robert Kirkman, quoted from THR:
Andrew Lincoln, wow – what an amazing find this guy is. Writing Rick Grimes month after month in the comic series, I had no idea he was an actual living breathing human being and yet here he is. I couldn’t be more thrilled with how this show is coming together.
