A quick look at The Walking Dead plot

The Walking Dead is set in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies look to destroy the remaining human survivors. It is based on the eponymous comic book series by Robert Kirkman, and follows a group of survivors in the years following a zombie apocalypse.

The official synopsis of the show, as per Rotten Tomatoes, reads:

''A group of survivors travel in search of safety and security, constantly on the move in search of a secure home. But the pressure each day to stay alive sends many in the group to the deepest depths of human cruelty, and they soon discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be more deadly than the zombies walking among them. At times, the interpersonal conflicts present a greater threat to their continuing survival than the walkers that roam the country.''

The series has received widespread critical acclaim for its writing, ambition, and gripping storyline. It has garnered a global fan following and has turned into a pop culture phenomenon. The show features Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, and Josh Hamilton, among many others, essaying key roles.
