As the Title said we are going to show off some pretty awesome shows today. These shows are for those that love the walking dead and need a little something while they wait for the season to start back up again. So here we go! Enjoy the blood, guts and amazing zombie filled shows below!


1. Fear the Walking Dead

Obviously, you can’t go wrong with this one. A prequel of The Walking Dead, the series follows a dysfunctional family as they navigate the world during the onset of the apocalypse. They need to develop new skills quickly in order to survive, as civilization is slowly collapsing. The show provides a smart way to extend the universe, especially since it’s initially set in Los Angeles, hence able to give another perspective on the global crisis.

Fear the Walking Dead is a subtler offering than the original, focusing more on existential dread than full-on gore, as one may expect at the beginning of the apocalypse. Thankfully, it more than manages to stand on its own thanks to great storylines and excellent characters, proving that the creators were interested in telling an original tale instead of simply milking the franchise for all its worth. 


2. iZombie

Besides zombies, iZombie doesn’t have much in common with The Walking Dead. It’s a lighter take on the zombie genre, but that doesn’t make it any less worthy of your attention. In fact, it’s perfect for when you’re craving a clever dramedy that still offers the occasional serving of gore, with a healthy helping of wit and satire on the side.

iZombie centres on Liv Moore (get it?), a zombie who takes a job at the city morgue to sustain her brainy diet. Eating the brains causes her to get visions from victims’ lives, so she starts to work with the police to solve murders and preserve her humanity in the process. Despite its procedural elements, there’s more to iZombie than meets the eye. The show’s exceptional world-building, for one, should be reason enough to tune in.

 


3. ZNation

Set a few years into a zombie apocalypse, Z Nation focuses on the humans’ efforts to find a cure for the deadly virus. The show follows a ragtag team as they struggle to transport the only known survivor of a zombie bite to a lab, since his blood contains antibodies that are mankind's last and best hope for a vaccine. What they don’t know is that the survivor also harbors a secret that could put them all in incredible danger.
 

The best thing about Z Nation is that it leans heavily into its premise. There’s plenty of violence and blood for fans of the genre to relish in, plus the occasional twist and scare meant to spice things up. Although formulaic at times, the series delivers a fun and action-packed narrative, which is enough to forgive the sometime mediocre acting or unavoidable clichés. It’s not a deep meditation on the human condition, but the show’s often spectacular visuals provide enough reason to give Z Nation a chance. 


4. Outcast

Outcast was created by Robert Kirkman, the man behind The Walking Dead, so expectations were high ahead of the show’s premiere. Thankfully, Outcast delivers. The show follows a troubled young man, Kyle, whose entire life has been plagued by demons. We’re not talking metaphorically here, the demons are very much real and have the ability to possess people and such. He will soon team up with the local priest, as the two discover that Kyle might have the ability to defeat the malevolent beings.
 

A well-crafted horror series, Outcast offers an emotionally complex story, while also managing to maintain the creepy factor throughout its first two seasons. It’s daring television, especially recommended for horror fans who prefer their characters with more depth than the genre usually requires. 


5. Under The Dome

Based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, Under the Dome centres on the residents of a small town, who find themselves suddenly trapped under a massive and transparent dome. Military forces try to destroy the dome, but fail miserably. As a result, the town residents need to figure out how to survive while being cut off from the rest of the world, with diminishing resources and rising tensions.
 

An engaging series with great special effects, Under the Dome benefits from a tight script and engaging atmosphere. It’s a fascinating look at how people would react under these peculiar circumstances, as food becomes scarce, there’s no power and no-one has any idea what the deal with the giant dome is. If you’re into suspenseful mysteries with a touch of horror, you’ll love this one. 


6. Santa Clarita Diet

Although recommending a comedy to The Walking Dead fans can seem counterintuitive, the premise of this delightful series makes it a great pick for when you crave your zombies with a side of laughter. Santa Clarita Diet follows the Hammonds, a typical middle-class family with a big secret: out of the blue, the mum develops a strong craving for raw meat. As a result, the family must band together to help her gorge on human flesh without alerting the authorities.
 

Thanks to a hilarious script and a great cast, the series quickly stands out as an engaging entry in the zombie TV landscape. Plus, there’s enough gore to satisfy horror fans, as long as they have the stomach for it.


7. The 100

When it comes to post-apocalyptic series it’s easy to rely on clichés to tell a universal story. The 100, though, is a high-concept show that only gets better with age, proving there’s still plenty of territory to explore within the genre. The action takes place years after a nuclear apocalypse wiped out almost all life on Earth, when a group of 100 post-apocalyptic survivors return to the planet from a space habitat to see if conditions have improved. They soon discover that they’re not alone, which only makes matters more complicated.
 

The 100 is a lively and entertaining drama, with enough tension and suspense to ensure you’ll be compelled to press "next episode". While it may look like your typical sci-fi teen show at first glance, it’s much grittier than the marketing suggests, so The Walking Dead enthusiasts should feel right in their comfort zone binge-watching this one.


8. The Strain

Zombies and vampires are pretty different breeds of monsters, but the tone of this gory show will definitely appeal to The Walking Dead fans. With a pilot directed by Guillermo del Torro, The Strain quickly establishes itself as a fun and gruesome B-grade horror show, one that completely rejects the idea that vampires can be sexy. In fact, they’re pretty terrifying.
 

When a virus seemingly kills all passengers and crew on an inbound flight, a CDC team is sent to investigate. Surprisingly, four passengers are found alive, but still infected, and it soon becomes clear that the virus transforms its victims into vampires. As a result, the team has to find a way to stop the virus from spreading, which would cause mayhem in New York. 


9. The Last Man on Earth

With an intriguing take on the post-apocalyptic genre, The Last Man on Earth is an ambitious series that tries to answer a universal question – what would you do if the entire population of the planet suddenly died as a result of a deadly virus? Left completely alone, Phil Miller, a pretty average guy, tries to make the most of his solitude, but eventually realises that living without company is not exactly worth the trouble, so he contemplates the idea of taking his own life. Thankfully, he encounters another unlikely survivor of the apocalypse, a woman named Carol. Soon enough, more people will start to show up.
 

It’s hard to make a comedy about surviving in a post-apocalyptic society, but The Last Man on Earth hilariously pulls it off, while also managing to explore deeper themes like loneliness and the need for human connection.


10. Preacher

Preacher is more high-concept than The Walking Dead, but the two series have a lot in common when it comes to both tone and violence. Based on the comic book series of the same name, this bizarre series centres on Jesse Custer, a minister who becomes possessed by a supernatural force that grants him a very special ability. As a result, he teams up with his ex-girlfriend and with a vampire to figure out what his new ability means and how to best make use of it.
 

Gory and visually stunning, Preacher takes its sweet time to establish its premise. If you’re patient for a little while, though, you’ll soon find that the show is a dark and thrilling ride, relying on much more than bloody violence to draw viewers in.
