Only a few weeks back someone asked about this, and now it’s confirmed! You may remember after the season finale of The Walking Dead in March this year, they aired the US ‘after show’ Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick. It’s now back permanently, and will premiere directly after each episode of The Walking Dead Season 6, which starts on Monday 12th October at 9pm on FOX UK.
Talking Dead serves as a platform for discussion on all things The Walking Dead. Filmed live, Chris sits down with the fans, actors, producers and TV enthusiasts to recap the most recent episode whilst taking questions and comments from viewers. Cast members of The Walking Dead that have appeared as guests in previous seasons include Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, Lennie James, Steven Yeun and Melissa McBride.
Talking Dead presenter Chris Hardwick said of the UK pick up: “I am THRILLED to finally be able to bring the show to the UK. Talking Dead gives fans the opportunity to communally process the episode they’ve just watched and to nerd out about the story in a very public forum: what they like, what they don’t like, or what types of filthy things they want to do with Daryl. Additionally, it will better inform viewers on making intelligent decisions when faced with the zombie apocalypse, which will DEFINITELY happen at some point (TIP: trust no one and aim for the brain).”
