Calling all binge-watchers! AMC scheduled another great marathon of all of The Walking Dead episodes, this time to celebrate the launch of Season 4. The marathon started on Monday, October 7, but if you're a little late to the party you can still catch a bit of the series before the marathon concludes right before the big Season 4 premiere on Sunday, October 13.
Even if you’ve seen all three seasons before, nothing matches that shared experience of watching episode after episode for hours on end until you become half-zombie yourself. It’s fun! This is also a good chance for newbies to catch up and join the fold. The more, the merrier.
AMC has a full breakdown of The Walking Dead schedule here, and you should check it out to see where they occasionally stop the marathon to air other programming for a few hours, then pick back up.
The marathon starts with the pilot, "Days Gone Bye," at 8 p.m. ET on October 7. There were only six episodes in Season 1, and after that they start the 13 eps of Season 2, beginning with "What Lies Ahead" at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday, October 8. Season 3 kicks off its 16-episode run with "Seed" at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, October 11. That marathon will end with the finale, "Welcome to the Tombs," at 4 a.m. ET on Premiere Day, Sunday, October 13.
But then AMC will re-air Season 3 again, starting at 5 a.m. ET on October 13 and continuing right up until the 9 p.m. ET premiere of Season 4, Episode 1, "30 Days Without an Accident."
At 10 p.m. ET, right after the premiere, don't forget to watch Talking Dead, where everyone goes full-nerd to analyze the episode. That show also always features a special sneak peek of next week's drama. Then "30 Days Without an Accident" will show again at 11 p.m. ET and several times after that, so you don’t have an excuse to miss it.
Plan your life (and undead life) accordingly!
