The post-apocalyptic zombie-themed horror series had us gripped to our screens as we watched a full-blown zombie apocalypse unfold in front of our eyes.

The series is based on the comic book by Robert Kirkman.

The show portrays the weeks and months following a zombie takeover and follows a group of lucky (or unlucky) survivors attempting to stay alive and find secure shelter in a world wherein death could be around any corner.

The group is led by former police officer, Rick Grimes.
