The Walking Dead is returning soon – with the beginning of the end – Season 11. UK Cord cutters might wonder – where can I watch The Walking Dead online, or on TV, without a cable TV subscription? There are several options which I’ll cover here.
For those who are either new to the series, or need a refresher, The Walking Dead is a TV series based on the comic book created by Robert Kirkman. The TV version was originally developed by Frank Darabont (who directed The Shawshank Redemption, among others), who left during the second season due to creative and financial differences.
The Walking Dead is a horror drama, showing a post-apocalyptic world infested with zombies, or “Walkers” as they’re called on the show. Series regular – and the former star of the show – Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) has left the series last year (though he will return for a series of movies), and it’ll be interesting to see how things go on without him.
Season 10, the season that began way back in 2019, then returned in 2020, and in 2021 – ended a few months ago. Season 11, which will be the final season, will premiere in the US on August 22, and will consist of 24 episodes (across two years!).
Where Can I Watch The Walking Dead In The UK – Past And Current Episodes?
In the US, The Walking Dead airs on the AMC cable network, and in the UK it used to air on Fox UK – which is set to shut down soon. Therefore, it’s also no longer available on Sky and NOW.
Cord cutters, therefore, have several options for watching the show – both past seasons and the upcoming newest one. First, no – The Walking Dead does NOT air on Netflix in the UK. Past seasons are available on Netflix in the US though – here’s how to watch US Netflix in the UK.
Season 11 will premiere in the UK one day after the US – on August 23, on Disney+. Past episodes will be added to Disney+ on July 2.
1. Amazon Prime Video – Seasons 1-10
Amazon’s video on demand library offers all past seasons of The Walking Dead. There’s a catch, however – Series 1 to Series 9 are available via Amazon Prime Instant Video (Read our review), for the same subscription fee you normally pay.
Season 10 is only available, for now, as a separate purchase. (including the finale and the six “bonus” episodes from 2021).
2. Google Play Store – Seasons 1-9
Google’s play store offers all past seasons of The Walking Dead, but Season 10 isn’t available yet, and will probably show up there once the whole season ends.
However, it’s a video on demand store – there are no subscription options, and you would have to buy each episode separately.
Watch On: Chromecast, certain models of Smart TVs, Roku, smartphones and certain other devices via the YouTube app (No direct Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV support).
