9:30pm Wednesday, March 7 on TV2

Trying to find the balance between dying to live and living to die is the constant battle for the survivors on The Walking Dead.

Tonight on TV2, the team make a plan, but it’s not a plan that is received well by one of the key people they depend upon.

Ever since the survivors met Herschel (Scott Wilson, The Great Gatsby, The Last Samurai) and his family when Carl (Chandler Riggs) was accidentally shot, his beautiful and remote home has provided a relative haven from the undead.

But when most of the world has been taken over by a virus that turns them into flesh eating zombies, and the destruction of the Centre for Disease Control has killed any hope for a cure, you can never really be safe for long.

Ever concerned for their safety, tonight the group makes a new plan – a plan that Hershel disagrees with adamantly. His home is open to the group of survivors… for now…

9:00pm Wednesday, February 8 on TV2

The end of the world is just the beginning. Get ready for the explosive second season of TV2’s The Walking Dead, premiering tonight on TV2.

After waking from a coma in an abandoned hospital, police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) finds the world he knew gone – ravaged by a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions. Nearby, on the outskirts of Atlanta, a small encampment struggles to survive as ‘the dead’ stalk them at every turn.

Can Rick and the others hold onto their humanity as they fight to live in this terrifying new world? When we last left the The Walking Dead, the characters were in the middle of a high-intensity struggle to survive, fleeing the encampment as it burst into flames.
