You need season five. I need season five. We’re not getting season five until October. But we are getting a The Walking Dead marathon the July 4 weekend that will climax with a Talking Dead season five preview special.
The “Dead, White, and Blue” Marathon will start July 4 at 9 A.M. ET/PT and will air every episode of The Walking Dead so far. It will end with a Talking Dead special starring host Chris Hardwick, showrunner Scott Gimple, and actress Aisha Tyler on July 6 at 9:00 P.M. ET/PT that will give us a sneak peek at the new season.
That’s not all, there will also be two The Walking Dead specials airing in July:
Inside The Walking Dead – Tuesday, July 8 at 10:00pm ET/PT
This one-hour documentary will showcase how this remarkable series is made. The executive producers will discuss the process of mapping out the show and viewers will hear from all of the key production departments – from production design and special effects to costumes and makeup – about their role in crafting the world of The Walking Dead.
Inside The Walking Dead: Walker University –Tuesday, July 15 at 10:00pm ET/PT
AMC’s second doc will follow the journey from extra to walker. Viewers will learn that there is much more to becoming part of the living dead than just make-up, and will get an inside perspective on the choreography, acting and motivation behind each zombie, including a look at what takes place at The Walking Dead’s own Zombie School.
