Never watched 'The Walking Dead?' Catch up in two hours with AMC's upcoming special
Even if you've never watched an episode of The Walking Dead, AMC has devised a way to get you ready for the Season 7 premiere without the daunting commitment of watching six season's worth of hour-long episodes. Or, maybe you are a TWD fan, but it's just time for a comprehensive refresher.
The network announced Tuesday that it will air a special tiled The Walking Dead: Journey So Far, which will recap the first six seasons of the zombie apocalypse in only two hours.
Here's the full press release from AMC:
"Season by season, from the moment Rick wakes up in the hospital (as told by Andrew Lincoln), all the way to the excruciating first swing of Negan's bat (told by Jeffery Dean Morgan and others in the lineup), the story of "The Walking Dead" will be told by those who have lived it. "The Walking Dead: Journey So Far" gives viewers who have never seen an episode of "The Walking Dead" a chance to get all caught up on the plot, characters, locations, and unique terminology of the series as well as providing fans who've never missed a moment with fresh interviews with the series' producers and their favorite actors as part of an exciting refresher course that will further whet their appetite for the new season."
Journey So Far will premiere Oct. 16 at 9 p.m. on AMC. Walking Dead's Season 7 premiere airs a week later, on Oct. 23.
