When will The Walking Dead return in the UK?
It’s finally back! The return time and date for everyone’s favourite zombie series has been announced by FOX in the UK.
Following its broadcast in the US the night before, The Walking Dead will return to our screens on Monday, October 23 at 9pm.
During the last season, Rick and the Alexandrians saw their worlds torn apart by the introduction of the tyrannical Saviours leader Negan. However, Negan’s power over them began to wane as the Alexandrians found other survivor groups to fight against his leadership. Season seven ended with a battle won – for the most part – by Alexandria and its allies, but the war is far from over.
Season eight is likely to return with a bigger bang than usual, as it is also the 100th episode of the series so far.
The news also means that Walking Dead companion series Talking Dead will also return. Presenter Chris Hardwick will be back for his regular debrief in the slot immediately after each Walking Dead episode, so one won’t have to wait too long for analysis, interviews and trailers.
