‘The Walking Dead’ Marathon Kicks Off On New Year’s Eve

AMC’s The Walking Dead marathon kicks off on New Year’s Eve.

If you’re one of those people who doesn’t do anything spectacular to ring in the New Year, then the cable network has something scheduled to help wile away the hours. Every episode from the acclaimed adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s comic book will air back-to-back.

The Walking Dead marathon spans two epic zombie-filled days. The first episode is presently scheduled to hit AMC on December 31 at 9 am. Beginning with the pilot episode, the cable network will run through each episode in chronological order. This should definitely help get you ready for the series’ return this February.

Unless something goes wrong during the upcoming marathon, The Walking Dead will wrap everything up on January 2 at 5 am. If you want to sit through every single episode the cable network has to offer but you have to work the day after New Year’s, then you might to start making arrangements now.

Once you’ve processed everything the show has currently to offer, then you can steel your tender nerves for the remaining season four episodes. According to star Andrew Lincoln, there’s still something pretty terrible looming on the horizon.

“And really, trust me, I think that three of the strongest episodes we’ve done this season are yet to come. Probably four. There are two episodes that I absolutely adore in the back eight, one of which I think is going to be the most controversial episode that we’ve probably ever been involved in, and that’s saying something,” he recently told Yahoo!.

The Walking Dead marathon isn’t the only event the boys and girls at AMC have in store for folks who love to watch their TV programs in enormous chunks. Beginning this Friday, those who missed out on Breaking Bad can watch every episode in one fell swoop.

Every episode of the award-winning series will air back-to-back on the cable network beginning December 27 at 12 pm. Each day AMC will serve up another batch of episodes at high noon, with everything coming to a close on December 30. If you didn’t have plans lined up for this weekend, then you probably do now.

Once you’ve properly consumed every episode the cable network has to offer, you’ll be ready for the proposed spin-off series Better Call Saul. Unfortunately, the series starring Bob Odenkirk doesn’t have a scheduled premiere date as of this writing.
