The Walking Dead is coming back one last time, with Part 3 of its last season – Season 11. UK Cord cutters might wonder – where can I watch The Walking Dead online, or on TV, without a satellite/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 – though he will return for a spin-off limited series.
Season 11 started with 8 explosive episodes, and went on a hiatus on October 10, 2021. The next batch of episodes, known as Part 2, returned on February 20 (21 in the UK).
The final part will have eight episodes. In total, Season 11 will consist of 24 episodes, in three parts.
In the UK, Part 3 of Season 11 will premiere on Monday, October 3 (one day after the US).
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 shut down. Therefore, it’s also no longer available on Sky and NOW.
Cord cutters have several options for watching the show – both past seasons and the upcoming newest one.
All past episodes of The Walking Dead are now available on Disney+ in the UK, including Season 11 (Part 1, Part 2 – and Part 3 when it arrives).
1. Disney+ Star – Seasons 1-11
Disney’s streaming service launched “Star” last year, their adult-oriented category which is part of Disney+, and now The Walking Dead is a part of it.
All the older seasons (1-10) are available for streaming, with Parts 1 and 2 of Season 11 also now available. Part 3 will premiere in October, and new episodes will drop every Monday.
For Disney+, you can get a monthly subscription, or an annual one which is a bit cheaper.
Watch On: Disney+ website, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast, Smartphones, Gaming consoles and Smart TVs
2. Amazon Prime Video – Seasons 1-11
Amazon’s video on demand library offers all past seasons of The Walking Dead. There’s a catch, however – Season 1 to Season 10 are available via Amazon’s Prime Video, for the same subscription fee you normally pay.
Season 11 (Both parts) is only available, for now, as a separate purchase.
3. 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).
