Anyone concerned that'The Walking Dead's" second season would be completely improvised can breathe a sigh of relief. No undead zip-zap-zow for you.

After cutting the entire season one staff with the intention of bringing in freelancers, Frank Darabont has switched up his game plan.

"The Shield's" Glen Mazzara has been swarn in as Darabont's deputy. The show order jumped up from season one's six episodes to thirteen. With that in mind, six additional writers will be hired to figure out awesome ways to kill zombies with a crossbow.

No word yet on what direction the new season will head in what new characters will be introduced. There have been rumblings that the camp will stumble upon Hershel's farm. If that's the case, let's go ahead and advise Michael Gross to start growing a beard. (Deadline)
