FIC will air episodes immediately after their US premieres
Following a hugely successful first season, “The Walking Dead” will return to AMC on Sunday, October 16th. FIC officially announced today that international airings of each season two episode will attempt to air as close as possible to the US dates, in some cases as soon as a few hours later.
“The Walking Dead audience wants to see this show live,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, SVP of Scripted Programming. “The first season became a hyped global water cooler event and we feel obligated to bring the show to international viewers right after its US launch.”
Full details of where and when the show will air internationally will arrive soon, but the program is scheduled to reach FOX audiences in 122 countries, speaking 35 languages and will be seen by over 200 million internationally.
