Thanks to a photo that was released a couple of weeks ago, we got our first glimpse at what the zombies will look like in AMC’s upcoming series, “The Walking Dead.” The network has decided now would be the time to give us a sneak peek at the show’s protagonist Rick Grimes as played by Andrew Lincoln (above). It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Let’s see if the actor lives up to the character we all know and love from the comic. Take a look…

“The Walking Dead” centers on Rick Grimes, a small-town cop who leads a group of survivors in their struggle against a world besieged by zombies and from the looks of this photo he’s packing a lot of heat.

The first season of the show will be six episodes with the first making its debut during AMC’s Fearfest in October. The series will be written, produced and directed by three-time Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont and produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Incredible Hulk, The Terminator).

Production on “The Walking Dead” is currently underway in Georgia.

What do you think of the first photo of Rick Grimes? Does he look the way you imagined?
