The Walking Dead, the award winning series that follows the story of sheriff Rick Grimes who awakes from a coma and discovers a zombie apocalypse

The Walking Dead is a horror drama television series aired by AMC cable television channel. The show focuses on the aftermath of a worldwide zombie apocalypse where everyone that dies turns into the undead. In this universe, there is no zombie lore and this word doesn't even exit. Instead, they are referred to as walkers, biters, and other euphemisms. The series takes place initially within the Atlanta metropolitan area and then expanded to the DC suburb of Alexandria, Virginia in the most recent seasons.

The Walking Dead debuted on October 31, 2010 and has been renewed through season nine even though season eight is yet to start. TWD season eight premieres on Sunday, October 22 in the US.

It was recently revealed that the phrase "walking dead" doesn't refer to the zombies, but the human survivors. Everyone in the world is infected and once they die, will rise again as undead unless they are destroyed before the turn happens.

The Walking Dead focuses on a core group of characters surrounding former deputy sheriff Rick Grimes portrayed by Andrew Lincoln. Rick becomes the de facto leader of a group of apocalypse survivors after waking from a coma to discover his world has been torn apart. Now a single father to a teenager and a toddler, Rick and his band of uncanny cohorts are deep into their journey into an uncertain future facing a series of rivals and threats to their survival.

Now starting its eighth season, The Walking Dead has transitioned from a battle against the dead to a battle against increasingly dangerous and organized human foes fighting for domination in a strife-torn world.

Some of the main characters of TWD currently on the show include:

  • Carl Grimes, played by Chandler Riggs, is Rick's son and has grown up on The Walking Dead from the beginning and proven himself a formidable fighter.
  • Daryl Dixon, portrayed by Norman Reedus, is core to the group but now deeply scarred by the death of Glenn Rhee in season seven, for which he blames himself.
  • Maggie Rhee, played by Lauren Cohan, is pregnant yet leading the battle against the current reigning villain Negan as we head into season eight.
  • Negan, portrayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, is the current villain who leads the misfit and violent band, The Saviors, in a war against Rick's crew.
  • Carol Peletier, played by Melissa McBride, is a former abused wife, now an apocalypse badass struggling with her killing skills.

The Walking Dead television series was created by Frank Darabont and is based on the comic book series of the same name written by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore.

Since its inception, The Walking Dead earned awards and critical acclaim including Golden Globes, Critic's Choice, Emmys, and Screen Actors Guild, among others. The Walking Dead inspired spin-off series Fear the Walking Dead, set earlier in the apocalypse and focused in California and Central America, as well as chat show Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick. The Walking Dead airs from Fall to Spring on AMC.
