GGS 342 The Walking Dead End of Year Check-In


 On this week’s podcast, Susan, Cort, & Erik checked in on The Walking Dead universe of shows, updates on the coming TWD movies, and zombie holiday entertainment choices. This Fall, The Walking Dead aired their long-awaited 10th season finale bringing back a few familiar faces and continued strife with the Whisperers. We also saw the return of Fear The Walking Dead for the first half of season 6 and the launch of a whole new world that strived to make even more connections in the TWD Universe. Unlike the others, The Walking Dead: World Beyond will tell its complete story over the course of two seasons. In case you were wondering, we had a lot of thoughts about the storytelling and momentum of World Beyond’s first season.

Zombie-related holiday entertainment
Anna & the Apocalypse (Hulu & AmzPrime)
