The latest trailer for Robert Kirkman and AMC‘s The Walking Dead has hit the Internet in all it’s screaming glory. Fans that complained about the slow pace and lack of action in season two had better find something to hold onto because, if season three is anything like this trailer, there’s gonna be all the screaming, gloriously gory, action we can stand.

Television and film critic Hercules over at Ain’t It Cool News was lucky enough to screen the first two episodes of the new season for review. He describes the two episodes as “a mammoth improvement” over the episodes in season II.
Were new writers hired over the hiatus? Did AMC approve a bigger budget? Because suddenly all the dialogue telling us what we already know about everybody’s feelings is gone.
All the storytelling is moving a lot faster, there are some major plot turns in the next two episodes and there’s plenty of zombie mayhem.
(The series did put at least one new writer in its writers’ room. Episode two is credited to Nichole Beattie, a veteran of “John From Cincinnati,” “Prime Suspect” and “Sons of Anarchy.”)
I’m not permitted to get into the plot at this point, but I can tell you we’re getting an all-new title sequence from which Frank Darabont’s executive producer credit has been scrubbed away.
Here’s AMC’s synopses for 3.1 and 3.2:
Episode 301 – “SEED”
With the world growing increasingly more dangerous and Lori’s pregnancy advancing, Rick discovers a potentially safe haven. But first he must secure the premises, pushing his group to its limit.
Episode 302 – “SICK”
After a traumatic event, a life hangs in the balance. Complicating matters, the group must also deal with a potential threat to their new surroundings.
