‘The Walking Dead’: AMC to Launch a Full Series Marathon This Weekend

     October 11, 2016


Hey, have you guys heard of AMC’s The Walking Dead? It’s pretty good, but if you haven’t watched a minute of it (and if you have 80+ hours free next week) you can get caught up on all six seasons in one undead swoop! This special event comes as the network celebrates its 20th FearFest, its annual celebration of all things horror. The 19-day horror-thon will feature iconic films as well as an entire run of The Walking Dead, which culminates in the series’ seventh season premiere on Sunday, October 23rd at 9pm.

The 88-hour marathon–which includes all 83 episodes of the series so far, plus a new two-hour retrospective special and the Season 7 premiere–starts Sunday, October 16th at 7am. Season 1 and the first half of Season 2 will air on Sunday, leading up to the two-hour special Sunday night. From there, the remainder of the episodes will start at 6pm each night. The entire FearFest run kicks off Thursday, October 13th and continues through Halloween night.

As for The Walking Dead, which has been a ratings, creative, and commercial juggernaut for the network, FearFest provided the foundation of its success. The series was launched during the horror-thon back in 2010 and hasn’t looked back since. And if the show isn’t your cup of tea, there are more than 300 other hours of programming to enjoy!
