Last year, at the start of the second season of “The Walking Dead,” AMC shot scenes moments after the CDC exploded from the season one finale near the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, which masqueraded as the CDC.
But those shots never made the actual cut of the show.
Good news for folks who wondered what happened: the scenes are part of the upcoming DVD set of season two of “The Walking Dead.”
Shane’s car breaks down just a few blocks away from the explosion, leaving him isolated from the group and having to fight off and outrun an army of the undead before finally being rescued by the group in the RV.
Later, the team goes back to the nursing home where Glenn had been held hostage season one but zombies had overtaken the humans there. (This was shot at the art community the Goat Farm.)
Showrunner Glen Mazzara will explain on the DVD why they chose to cut these scenes and cut straight to them far away from Atlanta on the highway instead. The DVD set comes out August 28.
