FROM MTV SPLASH (RE-POST):
“The Walking Dead” doesn’t return until October 14. Not on television, anyway. The story is actually slated to continue much sooner than that thanks to a brand-new web series debuting on October 1.
USA Today has the exclusive details of a new wave of “Walking Dead” webisodes called “Cold Storage,” starring Daniel Roebuck of “Lost” fame. (Yes, that’s the one and only Doctor Arzt — think he’ll have a bloodier exit here than his previous death-by-dynamite-lecture?)
Read more details about the “Cold Storage” plot below.
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.
“Walking Dead” co-executive producer and special effects mastermind Greg Nicotero will step behind the camera as director of the webisodes, airing over the course of four five-minute installments. It’s not the early days of the Atlanta siege starring the tank zombie that so many of us are desperately craving, no, but it’s still a solid amuse-bouche ahead of the AMC survival horror series’ glorious, gory return.
