AMC’s post-apocalyptic horror-drama series The Walking Dead made a killing when it debuted back in November 2011, and it remains one of the most popular shows of the last five years. Each and every season has been applauded by recognized television critics for putting an “…intelligent spin on the overcrowded zombie subgenre.” The series has received such an excellent response that a prequel spin-off series, The Fear of the Walking Dead, debuted in August 2015. Whether you’re ready to finally jump onto the zombie bandwagon and start the series, or you’re looking for a way to watch the latest episodes online as they air in the U.S., we’ve got you covered.
