Fans will get their Walking Dead fix an hour earlier when the AMC show returns for its second season this Fall.

AMC executive producer Gale Anne Hurd just announced at Comic-Con that season two of the Frank Darabont zombie drama will premiere Sunday, Oct. 16 at 9 p.m., an hour earlier than it’s previous time slot.

Earlier this month, series writer/executive producer Robert Kirkman told The Hollywood Reporter that Rick, Carl and company will be heading to the farm featured in the comics he created.

“The first season was all about being in the city, and dealing with zombies in the streets,” Kirkman said. “The second season is about zombies in the woods and what’s behind that next tree. It’s a much more rural setting.”
