At Comic-Con today, AMC announced that the sixth season of its most popular series (the most popular show on television that doesn't involve football, in fact), "The Walking Dead," will premiere Sunday, October 11, at 9 p.m. It'll be a 90-minute premiere, so hopefully there will be room for a Lennie James monologue or three.

Check out the new trailer.

HitFix's Greg Ellwood is in Hall H at Comic-Con and is live-blogging all the news from "The Walking Dead" panel at his 4 Quadrant blog.

Alan Sepinwall has been reviewing television since the mid-'90s, first for Tony Soprano's hometown paper, The Star-Ledger, and now for HitFix. His new book, "TV (The Book)" about the 100 greatest shows of all time, is available now. He can be reached at
