The Walking Dead universe is expanding, and the latest addition is The Walking Dead: World Beyond. Set in Nebraska, a decade after a zombie infestation overpowered the US, the spin-off show centers on a group of teens.
Although they’ve grown up in a post-apocalyptic world, this crew has become accustomed to living a relatively danger-free life. Still, they decide to travel to find the person who may be able to save humanity. On their long and treacherous journey, they’ll come to realize who they really are. It goes without saying that not everyone is destined to become a hero.
Here’s how to catch the show without paying for cable.
When does The Walking Dead: World Beyond premiere?
You can catch the premiere of The Walking Dead: World Beyond on AMC on Sunday, April 12 at 10 pm ET. The first episode will air straight after the season finale of The Walking Dead, but subsequent episodes will air on Sundays at 9 pm ET.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond is a limited series. In fact, it’s already been confirmed that only 2 seasons will be made; each consisting of just 10 episodes. Co-created by The Walking Dead producer Scott M. Gimple, the show is keeping most things under wraps.
But the cast has been revealed. The Americans‘ Annet Mahendru and actress Aliyah Royale will star as the 2 female leads in all 10 episodes. Youngers‘ Nico Tortorella will also appear throughout the entirety of the show as Felix, a mentor to the teens. Emmy award-winning actress Julia Ormond is another notable name that’ll pop up — you’ll likely recognize her from Mad Men and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Ormond is set to play Elizabeth, a woman who’s risen to become the leader of a fearsome force.
How to stream The Walking Dead: World Beyond online
Any live TV streaming service that offers AMC can be used to watch The Walking Dead: World Beyond online. Here’s a full list of the ones you can currently try:
AMC offers its own subscription service, AMC Premiere. For just $4.99/mo., you can watch new episodes at the same time as they appear on regular TV. The service even offers early access to The Walking Dead shows. There’s a catch. You’ll need to already have access to AMC, either via a cable subscription or an alternative streaming service. AMC Premiere offers a one-week free trial and currently has a deal that’ll let you into the platform for a year for $29.49.
AMC is also available via fuboTV. For $54.99/mo., you can watch more than 85 channels via the service’s standard package. Up to 2 simultaneous streams are allowed, and subscribers can record up to 30 hours of shows and movies. If you want to increase these limits, you can — 500 recording hours will cost you an extra $9.99/mo. and an additional stream is another $5.99/mo. Try a seven-day free trial.
If you want to watch AMC via Hulu, you’ll have to subscribe to one of the service’s live TV packages. There are two. With the main $54.99/mo. one, you can watch over 60 channels and access Hulu’s extensive on-demand catalog. For $1/mo. less, you’ll just have access to live TV. The former comes with a week-long free trial. But you can’t try the latter for free.
With either live TV plan, you’ll get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage and 2 simultaneous streams. You can pay an additional $9.99/mo. for unlimited streams and another $9.99/mo. for 200 storage hours.
At $20/mo., Philo is one of the most budget-friendly options around. It provides around 60 TV channels and includes a rare feature: unlimited DVR storage. Users can also enjoy three streams at once and can watch anything that’s aired within the past three days. A seven-day free trial is currently available.
Choose one of three subscription packages with Sling TV. Sling Orange and Sling Blue cost $30/mo. each. The Orange plan gives you 32 TV channels and the Blue option includes almost 50. If you want the best of both packages, you can score both plans for $45/mo.
The number of simultaneous streams you’ll get depends on your plan. Sling Orange users can only watch one stream at a time, Sling Blue users can enjoy three. Combined subscribers have access to four simultaneous streams. In terms of DVR storage, you’ll get 10 hours of recordings for free. But you can increase the limit to 50 hours for an extra $5/mo. Sling TV offers new subscribers a $10 discount on the first month of service.
YouTube TV also comes with a seven-day free trial. The service only has one $49.99/mo. subscription plan that offers over 70 TV channels, including AMC. One of YouTube TV’s biggest perks is its unlimited cloud DVR storage. You can keep recordings for up to nine months. Users can also enjoy three simultaneous streams.
The final cut
The third show to enter The Walking Dead world, The Walking Dead: World Beyond is well worth your time. Not only does its limited nature make it an interesting development for the zombie franchise, but its focus on a younger age group is almost guaranteed to keep viewers gripped.
