Many fans of The Walking Dead have dedicated 12 years of their lives to this series, and others came in seasons or even years after the premiere. But all fans can agree that the countdown to the end is brutal. We are anxious to see what’s to come while dreading the series finale episode.

The Walking Dead series finale

The above dates are for the AMC releases but keep in mind each episode will premiere one week early on AMC+, save for the finale.

Fans have hoped that the series finale won’t be released one week early as it will surely be spoiled by fans watching before the AMC premiere. It appears that wish has been granted. This is a bummer for those who play the extra for AMC+, but this is the last episode of the series, and it needs to be enjoyed by all.

Watch new episodes of The Walking Dead on AMC on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET. Talking Dead will also air new episodes but at a new time slot, following the airing of Anne Rice’s An Interview with a Vampire.
