They’re screwing with the wrong people!

It is now September and October 11th will arrive with season 6 of The Walking Dead. Before the new season starts we may want to revisit season 5. And there are some fans who missed season 5 for whatever reason and need to catch up somehow before season 6 starts. Yikes! There are people who are still stuck in the train car back in Terminus.

How can we help those people? Well, we have 3 options for them. The DVD, Netflix and AMC streaming or On Demand. Here are more details about all three options. First here’s a trailer about season 5 to get you excited about what you’re going to see! It was the trailer from Comic-Con 2014.


The DVD is now available for purchase. It features 5 discs with all 16 episodes, including the 90-minute season finale and 3 hours of bonus features.
