Where to watch The Walking Dead online
Hungry for human flesh? We might not be able to help you there, but we can show you where to watch The Walking Dead online.
With seven seasons under its belt, The Walking Dead has proven itself a hardy survivor in the brutal entertainment landscape. After more than half a decade on the air, Rick and the gang have endured enough horror to last several lifetimes, and if you’re anything like us, you’ve probably missed a couple of their misadventures here and there. Now that season 7 has drawn to a close, it’s the perfect time to catch up on all the misery and desperation of the most popular undead apocalypse to grace the small screen. We’ve rounded up all the places to watch The Walking Dead online here in the UK, from the very first season right up to season 7’s deadly conclusion.
The Walking Dead Season 1
When Deputy Rick Grimes is injured in a shootout, he slips into a coma. What he awakes to is a world ravaged by walkers (or zombies/undead/biters depending on which universe you’re in).
Rick sets out in this new world to track down his wife Lori and son Carl. Along the way, Rick meets up with various survivors who work together to learn more about the virus.

After the events of season 1, Rick, Lori, Glen and the rest of the survivors seek refuge at a remote farm, far from the chaos of Seattle. The farm is home to old-timer veterinarian Herschel Greene and his family, who are still grieving about a death in the family.
While personal issues between Rick and his best friend Shane reach a boiling point, opposing philosophies clash on the Greene’s farm.

The Walking Dead Season 7
Season 7 of The Walking Dead kicks off the moment Season 6 wrapped up: with one of Rick’s crew about to meet the business end of Negan’s baseball bat.
