The Story

After being injured on the job and lying in a coma for several weeks, sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) wakes up to a post-apocalyptic world where almost the entire population of the United States has been transformed into zombies. Alone and lost, he heads to Atlanta to look for his wife and son. Along the way, he meets other survivors with whom he tries to stay alive in this completely alien world.


A Totally Addictive Horror Masterpiece

The Walking Dead is a binge-worthy TV series that fits in perfectly with the station’s fiction-fan DNA. Adapted by Robert Kirkman (who created the comic book of the same name) and Frank Darabont, the series was an instant and unprecedented hit in the US, building a fan base that has grown exponentially from one season to the next.


Filmed in ultra-realistic settings, the show features striking horror scenes and captivating plots, with shocking twists that keep the suspense at fever pitch. The Walking Dead is an undeniably powerful and visually stunning series.


“As the go-to destination for fans of suspenseful fiction, addikTV scores a major coup this spring with the presentation of the worldwide sensation The Walking Dead. The station is proud to maintain its momentum and keep satisfying its viewers with even more Quebec French-language premieres of popular series, as well as quality original productions,” declares Suzane Landry, Director, Stations & Programming, TVA Group.
