In less than a week, The Walking Dead will air its finale episode, “Rest in Peace.” Numerous viewing parties are being hosted around the country, including a LIVE event hosted by Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick in Los Angeles.
Most of the episodes of The Walking Dead and its spinoff series see an early release on AMC’s streaming service AMC+. This separate subscription allows members to view AMC Network originals at their convenience. The Walking Dead has aired upcoming episodes one week early, but the series finale has been held and will air simultaneously on AMC and AMC+ on November 20, 2022.
That will be accompanied by a LIVE fan event being held in Los Angeles. There will be a fan experience for those lucky enough to attend in person. This includes drinks served by The Sexton and Lagunitas and walker-themed foods. There is also a Designing Dead Photobooth hosted by Canva to allow fans to capture the memories of this historic event.
