AMC is launching two new initiatives for fans of The Walking Dead and Feat the Walking Dead: The Walking Dead Fan Rewards Club and The Walking Dead Subscription Box (working title).
Fans can earn points for things they’re probably already doing (watching the show; posting comments and discussions online, etc.) through the rewards club, while the subscription box will be a quarterly box of exclusive TWD/FtWD-related, limited edition merchandise from the shows.
Both initiatives will go into effect in September – in time for The Walking Dead’s milestone 100th episode and the premiere of the second half of Fear the Walking Dead’s third season.
AMC today released special Comic Con art for “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead.” “The Walking Dead” key art also reveals October 22nd as the season 8 premiere, which coincides with the series’ 100th episode.
AMC will also be present at MLK Park with a fan activation for fans of both shows.
Talking Dead is the #1 talk show on TV and Chris Hardwick is a large part of the reason why.
Now AMC is investing Hardwick’s combination of wit, charm and pop culture knowledge by greenlighting Talking with Chris Hardwick.
Episodes of “Talking with Chris Hardwick” will feature a wide breadth of guests and highlight Hardwick’s singularly irreverent and authentic take on today’s pop culture landscape.
Talking with Chris Hardwick will premiere on Sunday, April 9th (11/10C) – the week after the current season of The Walking Dead’s finale. The show will then run weekly except during the season runs of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead continues to dominate the ratings, big time. Its seventh season mid-season premiere showed increases from its mid-season finale in key demographics – to the tune of a 5% increase in toital viewers and a 3% increase in the 18-49 demo.

If you’ve ever wanted to be a Walker on AMC’s hit drama series The Walking Dead, now’s your chance.

It looks like Rick has reached his boiling point as The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its seventh season – he’s actively reaching out to other communities to rise up against Negan.
AMC has released a couple of intriguing videos to set up the winter premiere of TWD: first, executive producer Scott Gimple takes us through the various communities that have been established on the show and second, a sneak peek clip from the winter premiere.
Quite possibly the strangest Super Bowl promotion of all time has to be this one form AMC’s The Walking – the AMC drama has released special Walking Dead versions of NFL players in a special series of Topps Trading Cards.
The zombie-fied professional football players hailfrom the New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, and more. Greg Nicotero, executive producer, director and special FX make-up designer for “The Walking Dead,” has created hand-drawn walkers out of Malcolm Jenkins, Geno Atkins, Cole Beasley, Jesse James, Shea McClellin and John Kuhn, among others, on digital trading cards that football and series fans can collect, at no charge, for a limited time.
The Walking Dead shambles back onto your multi-media screens on Sunday, February 12th.
