With the episode count upped from six to fifteen, and a mid-season break in between, the second season of this prologue to the zombie apocalypse emerges from the shadow of its more popular sibling series, although it does share some of the problems that continue to plague TWD – namely cheats involving the fate of some of the characters, who’ll begin to grow on you after an alienating introduction in season one. FTWD season two charts a different course, with Madison (Kim Dickens), Travis (Cliff Curtis) and family setting sail for a safer port – zombies can’t swim, right? – only to encounter a different kind of peril on the ocean (have none of them seen Dead Calm?). Much of the second half takes place in Mexico, where every day is the Day of the Dead. AMC have renewed the show for a third season, which is due to air this year.
