The Walking Dead is about to return to AMC as Season 6 makes its debut on Sunday at 9/8c. Fans have had a spinoff called Fear the Walking Dead to tide them over, but that recently wrapped up, and the original will soon grace the television screens in living rooms across the nation.
But if that weren’t enough, there’s also a web series in progress. The first episode of Fear the Walking Dead Flight 462 went live on the AMC YouTube channel last weekend. You can watch that here:
There’s no denying that The Walking Dead has become a major part of American pop culture. There’s even a convention inspired by The Walking Dead called Walker Stalker Con with 8 separate events across the world. It’s not solely dedicated to the series, but The Walking Dead is clearly its main focus. The con hits Atlanta later this month, where fans can meet many stars and people associated with the show including: Greg Nicotero, Andrew Lincoln, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney, Steven Yeun, David Morrissey, Michael Cudlitz, Scott Wilson, and many more (seriously, MANY more).
Dates in New York/New Jersey, London, Dallas, Denver, Nashville, Chicago, and even a cruise from Miami to The Bahamas follow.
As for the The Walking Dead itself, it will be interesting to see if the opening of Season 6 is as grisly as that of Season 5, which recently became available on Netflix. The onscreen bloodshed has always been a staple of the show, but somehow seems to keep outdoing itself as it progresses.
If you’re caught up on the series, and the spinoff, and you just can’t wait to sink your teeth into more of The Walking Dead, you can check out the iPhone game The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land.
There’s also plenty of bonus content on AMC.com.
