AMC Walking Dead 2015 Summer Marathon Every Sunday for 5 Sunday
AMC’s “The Walking Dead” will kick off its sixth season with a 90-minute episode on Oct. 11, the network announced Friday from Comic-Con in San Diego.
The start date is in line with previous seasons, as this will mark the fourth straight year that “Dead” has bowed on the second Sunday of October.
AMC also announced a “Talking Dead Season 6 Preview Special” for Aug. 23 at 8 p.m., perhaps as a lead-in to “Walking Dead” spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead.” No premiere date has been announced for “Fear,” but it was expected to air in the weeks leading into the return of “Walking Dead.”
The Chris Hardwick-hosted “Talking Dead” will continue to air after “The Walking Dead” this fall, with its premiere set for 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 11. A new season of “Comic Book Men” will debut the following week with back-to-back episodes starting at midnight.
And as a lead-up to the sixth season of “The Walking Dead,” AMC will air a “5 Sundays/5 Seasons” marathon. Each Sunday from July 26 through Aug. 23, the network will air a single season of the zombie drama starting in the afternoon.
A new trailer for season 6 also debuted during the panel. Watch below:
