With six spin-offs branching out from the main timeline, The Walking Dead went from a simple comic book adaptation to a fully developed universe. Here's how to watch the series, in chronological order or its different release dates.

When comics The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard were adapted for the small screen, it was still difficult to guess the future of the series. But the creation of the AMC channel exceeded expectations, ultimately offering 11 seasons of the zombie story… and plenty of spin-offs!

Choosing to respect the diegetic chronology, internal to the story, also means adding difficulty. But it will certainly take more to scare the most motivated fans of The Walking Dead ! So be aware that you will have to alternate between different seasons, of different series. Because the original and its spin-offs sometimes overlap!

The method is in fact no more obvious: by respecting the release order, many pauses between certain groups of episodes risk impacting viewing comfort from a certain point – more precisely, at the arrival of the first derivative series.
