‘The Walking Dead’ is somehow not dead, still walking

3 September, 2021

AMC’s The Walking Dead has shown some surprising signs of life recently. It’s been the most in-demand TV show in the world across all platforms ever since its 11th and final season debuted on August 22nd, according to Parrot Analytics. The zombie show had seen both its total viewership and ratings in the all important 18-49 demographic sink for the previous five seasons. That’s the opposite of what television executives want to see, particularly for a franchise that will soon add two spinoff shows and a series of films. Over the last nine days, global audience demand for The Walking Dead was 75.1x higher than the average show worldwide. This was 6.6% higher than second place Game of Thrones (70.5x), and 24.1% higher than third place Attack on Titan (60.5x).
