'The Walking Dead' Aftershow 'Talking Dead' to Run 90 Minute Premiere
Long-running aftershow Talking Dead is set to debut the new season following the highly anticipated season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead proper with a special 90-minute episode. Additionally, it will feature 12 stars from the AMC series.
Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Michael Cudlitz, Sonequa Martin-Green, Chandler Riggs, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Ross Marquand, and Jeffery Dean Morgan will all appear on the live show - all actors who feature in that heart stopping final scene of season 6.
Scott M. Gimple and Robert Kirkman will also appear on the show, to be hosted as always by Chris Hardwick.
“As ‘The Walking Dead’ returns with one of the most powerful and highly anticipated episodes in series history, it feels fitting to literally share this night with the fans whose support have made this show what it is today,” said AMC president Charlie Collier.
“As a fan myself, even I crave a supersized ‘Talking Dead’ to do what it does best – serve as a focal point for fans – along with Chris, the producers and the largest cast the show has ever assembled – to experience, discuss and process together this emotional episode.”
