Walking Dead Season 6 to air on Fox UK just 24hrs after the US
For those of you missing Rick and the gang, fear not (or maybe fear a bit… the show does have zombies after all!). The Walking Dead Season 6 will be coming to FOX in the UK on the 12th of October, just 24hrs after it airs in the USA. The first episode will be an extended 90 minutes of lovely zombie filled goodness too!
“Seeing the unrivalled global success of The Walking Dead unfold over the past five years has, in a sense, been very humbling. No matter how hard the actors, producers, programmers and marketers work on the show, this zombie explosion would not have been possible without the die-hard support of our global fans. It is why FOX continues to be committed to a day & date release of the series that ensures fans of the show everywhere, continue to be part of the global conversation.” said Sharon Tal Yguado, EVP Scripted Entertainment Programming at FOX International Channels.
As in previous seasons, the show’s sixth season of 16 episodes will air in two parts, with the first eight episodes kicking off internationally October 12th and the final eight returning February 2016.
