AMC to air 'Walking Dead' episodes in black and white


AMC is ready to show you 'The Walking Dead' in an entirely different way - sans color.

The network will air episodes of its mammoth hit in black and white, with the first two episodes of the zombie drama airing February 14 at 6:30 p.m. It is a little surprising they would show it that early, even in black and white.

These two episodes will lead into the second season premiere of Kevin Smith's 'Comic Book Men' at 9 p.m. After that the network debuts 'Freakshow' at 9:30 p.m., while 'Immortalized' - a taxidermy competition series (really? REALLY?) airs at 10 p.m.

'The Walking Dead' is in its third season and is a home run for AMC, drawing more than 10 million viewers thus far this season. It returns with new episodes Sunday, February 10 at 9 p.m.

This is not the first time AMC has aired episodes in black and white. The season premiere has been broadcast in that manner before. This resembles how the comic book 'The Walking Dead' series is presented by Robert Kirkman and Image Comics.

Here are the airdates, times, and episode numbers that will air in black and white:

Feb. 14, 6:30 p.m. 101
Feb. 14, 8 p.m. 102
Feb. 21, 8 p.m. 103
Feb. 28, 8 p.m. 104
March 7, 8 p.m. 105
March 14, 8 p.m. 106
March 21, 7:30 p.m. 201
April 4, 8 p.m. 202
April 11, 8 p.m. 203
April 18, 8 p.m. 204
April 25, 8 p.m. 205
May 2, 8 p.m. 206
