Still a month to go before the Season 3 premiere of Robert Kirkman and AMC‘s The Walking Dead. Don’t worry though, anxious fans can cure that uncomfortable itch brought on by The Walking Dead hiatus and feed their zombie habit with four five-minute episodes of the new web-series Cold Storage. The series debuts on AMC October 1st.
The series is directed by The Walking Dead‘s special effects wizard Greg Nicotero and features several recognizable faces including Daniel Roebuck (Lost – Dr. Leslie Arzt) and Cerina Vincent (Cabin Fever).
Cold Storage tells the story of a young man, Chase (played by Josh Stewart), trying to reach his sister in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. He finds temporary shelter in a storage facility run by a former employee named B.J. (Roebuck); however, things are not what they appear.
Don’t get your hopes up though, the word is that the webisodes will feature all new characters and will not have any surprise appearances from the regular Walking Dead cast. That aside, these webisodes should help make the wait for the series’ return a little more bearable.
The Walking Dead shambles back onto television screens on Oct. 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
