Probably should have started here, hey?

If you’re new to the series, it’s based on a comic book series written by Robert Kirkman. In the simplest terms, the show covers the wild journey of a Sheriff who wakes from a coma and discovers he’s now living in a post-apocalyptic reality where zombies threaten humankind.

There are a bunch of spinoffs and related series connected to The Walking Dead, so if you’re looking for a meaty binge-worthy universe of content to get into, this is a good option.

To start, Fear The Walking Dead is a six-season-strong series that dives into the events that lead to the zombie apocalypse. It was just announced, in fact, that the seventh season would drop on October 17, 2021.

Stream that on Binge, too.

Next, you could move on to The Walking Dead: World Beyond. This series looks at the first generation of kids to grow up during a zombie apocalypse. The first season is live and the second is slated for October 3, 2021.

You can catch this series on Amazon Prime Video.

Who is in the final season of The Walking Dead?

In this final season of The Walking Dead, we’ll see the likes of Josh McDermitt, Khary Payton, Eleanor Matsuura and Paola Lazaro on screen along with Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam, Nadia Hilker, Cassady McClincy and Lauren Cohen (among others).
