The Dead, White, and Blue Marathon has been updated to become the Six Seasons, Six Sundays Marathon starting July 3rd with season 1 of The Walking Dead on AMC.

Our Sundays now belong to the dead again! Starting Sunday, July 3rd, we can watch The Walking Dead on AMC all day on Sundays. Season 1 is a shorter season so it will run twice on that Sunday starting at 7:30 am EDT and 1:30 pm EDT.

Sunday, July 10th, the season 2 marathon begins at 6:30 am EDT and concludes at 8 pm EDT leading into Preacher and Ride with Norman Reedus.The schedule is not posted yet on AMC for the following Sundays, but it should be similar.

So get ready to go back to the beginning. Meet Morgan and Merle. Spend a Sunday on the farm with the Greenes. Watch the rise of the Ricktatorship Then go to prison. Tangle with The Governor. Talk a long walk to Terminus. Watch the transformation of a woman named Carol. Meet Abraham’s army and road trip to Alexandria. Relive all 6 seasons in 6 Sundays.

Fear the Walking Dead  returns for the second half of season 2 on August 21st,  so my bet is that the Sunday after the season 6 marathon will be a Fear the Walking Dead marathon leading into the season 2 midseason premiere.

If that’s the case, we will have no more Sundays without The Walking Dead or Fear the Walking Dead (except for today) until about Thanksgiving!

Walker Withdrawals are tough, but marathons, DVD news, comic-con trailers and interviews all help ease the suffering. We’ve made it through the beginning phase. Now we have to tough it out through the rest of the hot summer.

Be sure to think ahead and plan your Sundays accordingly to catch your favorite season on its special marathon day. Stick with Undead Walking for all the news and information about everything related to our favorite zombie shows. Fear returns in August and The Walking Dead returns in October!
