The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead is a drama based on the brilliant black and white comic books by Robert Kirkman, and developed for TV by Frank Darabont  (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile). It tells the story of deputy sheriff Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln – This Life, Teachers, Strike Back) who awakes from a coma to find a world seemingly in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.

    Does anyone know if Season 6 will be coming to any Freeview channels? Seems amazing to me that no-one’s prepared to pick it up.

  2. Melanie Hodges says:

    Talking Dead gave the release date for part two as 14th February over in the USA so if it follows the usual track, we should have it over here a day later on the 15th

  3. Sarah k says:

    If yall don’t have sky invest in now TV box . Very cheap no contract and entertainment package is only 6.99 a month..Fox channel is on there .Cant wait to watch season 6 on the 12 October ..

  4. Samantha hewett says:

    • mick72 says:

      Kerry if u go onto [redacted: please don’t post links to illegal streaming sites] as well as airing a lot of the latest films you can also watchy all 16 episodes of season 4 and episode 1 + 2 of season 5

  7. Aaron says:

    The adverts are saying it’s on at 9pm on October 13th…

  8. Dave J says:

    It looks like Channel 5 has changed its mind about season 4! Just saw an advert saying season 4 was coming to 5Star with brand new episodes soon. There was no date just “Coming soon” with double episodes.

  9. Kevin Cupit says:

    To all you people bragging about having SKY/FOX !!! What about us general Walking Dead fans who dont have Sky or just refuse to pay Sky’s expensive fees & have been watching season’s 1-3 on 5 via Freeview.
    Come on 5, please reconsider, even putting it on 5* or 5USA !!!!

    • louhgyt says:

      Can I let u in on a little secret Kevin?? No one gives a tiny [edited for foul language] if u don’t have sky 🙂

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Hi Kevin.

      Easiest way to get Sky exclusive shows like Walking Dead at a discounted rate is a NOW TV box. which is a very reasonable £4.99 per month for the entertainment package. – Now TV 🙂

  11. naomi tall says:

    Wen do season 4 start forchannel 5 in the uk

  12. Jodie moss says:

    Hello any more news of the walking dead coming to channel 5 waited long enough now xxxx

  13. Benjy says:

    Ok so for Xmas I got the box set of the walking dead season 1 – 3 and am hooked!! I found a site online that’s allowed me to watch episodes 1-8 of season 4 but that’s where my story ends!!! When and where will episodes 9 and onwards be shown in the uk!??

    • naseem says:

      What site did you watch season 4 on???

      • Andrew Andrew says:

        Season 4 is currently airing on Fox, with new episodes showing just one day after thee US. There is no justifiable reason to obtain them on any “site”.

        • Kel says:

          Fox are only showing current episodes I missed 1 to 8 of season 4 and have no way of watching this as no repeats so there’s every legitimate reason to watch online!

          • Andrew Andrew says:

            No there isn’t. You can wait for the disc if you really do want to be legitimate. If you want to be impatient and not legitimate, that’s when you watch online

    • mick72 says:

      Benjy go to [redacted: please don’t post links to illegal streaming sites] and you will find all 16 episodes of season 4 and ep 1+2 of season 5 as well as a lot of the latest films, American Sniper along with others as recent. Ho0pe this helps

  14. Rebecca says:

    When will season 4 of the walking dead start on channel 5 or 5* in the UK? I know it is out on fox but we do not have that channel.
