The rumored Walking Dead talk show is now a reality, and it has a name: Talking Dead.
Deadline reports that the live half-hour show, similar to Bravo’s popular Watch What Happens: Live, will debut Oct. 16, following the encore presentation of The Walking Dead‘s season premiere. As expected, The Nerdist host Chris Hardwick will lead the weekly discussion with actors, producers and fans about the latest episode of the acclaimed horror series.
“As an enormous fan of both The Walking Dead comic and television show, I pretty much begged for this job,” Hardwick said. “Dissecting the moves of Rick Grimes and the remaining survivors after every episode is something I would be doing with my friends anyway, so the fact that AMC is actually paying to do so is a bonus.”
The Walking Dead kicks off its 13-episode season with a 90-minute premiere Sunday, Oct. 16, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
