AMC Announces July 4 ‘Walking Dead’ Marathon, Two New Documentaries

AMC will celebrate the Fourth of July weekend with “Dead, White and Blue,” a three-day marathon of The Walking Dead that culminates Sunday, July 6, with the Talking Dead Season 5 Preview Special.

Beginning Friday, July 4, at 9 a.m. ET/PT, the cable channel will air all four seasons of the hit drama based on the long-running comic series created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard. And if 51 back-to-back episodes and the Season 5 preview aren’t enough to tide fans over until the series’ return in October, they can come back for two new documentaries.

Premiering Tuesday, July 8, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Inside The Walking Dead examines the work behind the scenes of the drama, and features interviews with producers, production designers, special-effects and makeup artists and more. That’s followed Tuesday, July 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT by Inside The Walking Dead: Walker University, which pulls back the curtain on the bringing the undead to, um, life.

That should dovetail nicely into the July 24-27 Comic-Con International, where the Season 5 trailer will premiere.
