The first season centers on Sheriff's Deputy Rick Grimes, who was shot in an altercation with several criminals. His injuries result in his slipping into a coma for an indeterminate amount of time, after which he awakens into a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies, which the survivors colloquially call "walkers". Rick discovers that his wife and son are missing and, after meeting Morgan Jones and his son Duane, heavily arms himself from the police station's armory, and sets off on a perilous journey for Atlanta, Georgia, where the CDC is rumored to have set up a quarantined safe-zone in the city and where his family may be located. However, he soon discovers that the city has been overrun with walkers and it is no longer safe. After being rescued from a horde of walkers by Glenn Rhee, Rick and Glenn's associates, who were in Atlanta to scavenge, escape the city.
A few miles outside the city, Rick's wife Lori and his son Carl have been hiding away from the walkers with Shane Walsh, Rick's former colleague and best friend. They have established a camp with a small group of other survivors from around the country. After being rescued in Atlanta by members of the group and being reunited with Lori and Carl, Rick assumes a command position with Shane and must take responsibility, not only for his wife and son, but for the survival of the group as well. Part of the group goes back into Atlanta to recover a bag of weapons Rick left there (and to rescue Merle Dixon, who was left handcuffed atop a department store roof), but on their return find that the camp has been nearly overrun by walkers. In hopes of finding medical treatment for an injured member, some of the group decides to return to Atlanta and seek aid from the CDC.
