Need a good undead distraction while you wait for The Walking Dead’s season-four return? We have you covered.

All three episodes of the new Walking Dead web series have gone live, focusing on a group of survivors in search of medical attention after their camp is overrun by walkers. It’s a compelling arc, and shows how far these little web shorts have come in recent years.

It's also worth noting that the three-part series could give us a taste of how AMC’s upcoming Walking Dead spinoff might work, by focusing on some new characters in the zombie-filled universe. Plus, with another week left until the proper show returns on Oct. 13, what else are you going to do?

Here’s the synopsis for the web series:

AMC’s award-winning The Walking Dead webisode series returns to today with three new installments. The Walking Dead: The Oath tells the story of the lone survivors of a massive walker-attack, Paul (Wyatt Russell, Cowboys and Aliens) and Karina (Ashley Bell, The Last Exorcism), who speed across the countryside, frantically searching for an aid-station as one of them slowly bleeds out from a wound. Finally coming upon a hospital that has not been overrun at first feels like a blessing, but could soon turn to misfortune, as a seemingly benevolent doctor (Ellen Greene, Little Shop of Horrors) may hide a darker agenda.

Check out the first episode above, then head over to AMC’s Youtube Channel for the next two installments.

So what’d you think? Worthy of a place in the Walking Dead world?
