About ‘Tales of The Walking Dead’

“Tales of The Walking Dead” is the newest spinoff of the Walking Dead franchise. Unlike “Fear The Walking Dead,” the new series will not feature the same characters from episode to episode. Instead, it will be a six-part anthology of self-contained episodes, each with their own distinct tone, and told from distinct points of view.

The show boasts an impressive cast, including Olivia Munn (“X-Men: Apocolypse,”) Terry Crews (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,”) Parker Posey (“Lost in Space,”) and many others.

Fans have several options to access the show via AMC, but cord-cutters who choose to watch the show on AMC+ will get an added bonus: early access. The first two episodes will premiere on AMC+ on Sunday, August 14th, whereas only one will air live on AMC. In addition, beginning Sunday, August 21st, the next week’s episode will appear a week early on AMC+. If you want to keep ahead of those spoilers, consider a subscription to AMC+! Plans start at just $6.99/month, so it’s a great option for fans who simply cannot wait for “Tales of The Walking Dead.”
