Flesh-eating zombies aren’t the only worry thing to be worried about in the second season of “The Walking Dead.”
Sarah Wayne Callies, who plays one of the survivors in the AMC zombie apocalypse saga, teased during a Friday panel at Comic-Con that “the most dangerous things out there are the monsters inside.”
Robert Kirkman, executive producer and creator of “The Walking Dead” graphic novel series, announced that the 13-episode second season will premiere Oct. 16.

The Walking Dead is based on the comic book written by Robert Kirkman and published by Skybound and Image comics. The 13-episodes of season two will continue to tell the story of a group of survivors fighting for their lives after a zombie apocalypse.
