The Walking Dead companion series Talking Dead is making a (brief) stop in the UK.
FOX UK has picked up the season finale of the Chris Hardwick fronted AMC series, with plans to air it as a one-off special following the fifth season finale of The Walking Dead on Monday March 30th, TVWise has learned.
Talking Dead is an after-show hosted Chris Hardwick which sees a range of guests – including fans, actors and producers – discuss the most recent episode of The Walking Dead whilst taking questions and comments from viewers.
The talk series, which is one of the only remaining unscripted originals on AMC, has been a big ratings performer since its inception and airs lives on AMC after the latest episode of The Walking Dead has been broadcast.
“This after-show gives fans the opportunity to nerd out about the story in a very public forum: what they like, what they don’t like, or what questions they may have”, said Hardwick. “Additionally, it will better inform viewers on making intelligent decisions when faced with the zombie apocalypse, which will probably happen sooner or later.”
