The Walking Dead returns to UK screens tomorrow (23rd August) for it’s eleventh and final season. Season 11 is set to be the biggest ever with a run of 24 episodes. These are going to be split into three eight-episode blocks, with the final two blocks showing in 2022.
Watching the show is going to be a little different than usual with the FOX channel closing down. Instead, UK fans will be able to stream the new episodes via Star on Disney+. We’re used to getting the episodes a day or so behind the US, however, we’re expecting episodes to show up each week around 8am.
If you’re not up to date with The Walking Dead and like to avoid spoilers we suggest you don’t read any further.
