AMC will air a 2-hour special talking a look back at the entire series of The Walking Dead to prepare fans for the big season 7 premiere.

The cast and producers of the monster hit show The Walking Dead, based on Robert Kirkman’s equally popular comic series will look back at the series that debuted on Halloween of 2010 as it prepares to head into its 7th and maybe biggest season yet.

Season 7 starts on October 23rd with the answer to the biggest cliffhanger in the series’ history. On the Sunday before fans finally find out the big Lucille reveal, October 16, AMC will air a retrospective of the show from a perspective of the characters and what they have been through since the beginning.

AMC’s press release gives this information:

“During the special, fans can get up close and personal with the cast as they tell the stories of their characters from the moment they were introduced to where they were when last season ended. Clips from the most pivotal moments in series history will be intercut between cast and executive producer interviews.

Season by season, from the moment Rick wakes up in the hospital (as told by Andrew Lincoln), all the way to the excruciating first swing of Negan’s bat (told by Jeffery Dean Morgan and others in the lineup), the story of ‘The Walking Dead’ will be told by those who have lived it.

‘The Walking Dead: Journey So Far’ gives viewers who have never seen an episode of ‘The Walking Dead’ a chance to get all caught up on the plot, characters, locations, and unique terminology of the series as well as providing fans who’ve never missed a moment with fresh interviews with the series’ producers and their favorite actors as part of an exciting refresher course that will further whet their appetite for the new season.”

While we will have marathons and reruns leading up to the premiere episode, the retrospective is an exciting way to relive all 6 seasons a little more quickly and with more behind-the-scenes information along the way.

The Walking Dead: The Journey So Far will air at 9 pm ET and again at 11pm ET. on Sunday, October 16th.

It will be a fantastic way to remember what it’s like to have Rick and Carol and Michonne on our TV screen on dark cool Sunday nights again. One week later, on October 23rd it will really be here. The Sunday we’ve been waiting for since the leather jacket and red bandanna wearing, cursing man came out of the RV to have us wetting our pants will really be here.
