Michonne, you got an extra katana or two for Jamie and Adam?

The MythBusters hosts might want to put some kind of undead-defense system in place, and quickly — because the Discovery Channel series’ zombie-themed episode will air Thursday, Oct. 17 at 10 pm ET/PT, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Even better, the hour will feature appearances by The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero and former castmember Michael Rooker. (Scroll down to see an exclusive pic of Rooker — RIP Merle — and the guys, along with some walkers.)

Much like MythBustersBreaking Bad special, which tested the AMC series’ science and featured a visit from Aaron Paul and Vince Gilligan, the Oct. 17 installment will take on the kind of zombie-apocalyptic queries Rick’s gang often encounters. These include: ”Are axes or guns more effective at dispatching the undead?” and “How do those shuffling corpses always seem to catch up to their living prey?”

Scroll down to scrutinize the photo, then hit the comments: What zombie-related question would you like Adam and Jamie to answer?
