Sweet ass sweet.

AMC has just announced that they’ve greenlit Darabont’s adaption of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead and it’s slated for an October debut, says Variety.

“He’s taken the baseline road map of the underlying material and just blew it out to the next level,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s senior veep of programming, production and digital content. “There’s stuff in there that will make the people who love the comics very happy and some surprises in there as well.”

Six episodes have been ordered and The Pacific’s Jon Bernthal has been cast as Rick Grimes. Who’s excited? *this guy*
