The Walking Dead series premiered back in 2010 and has kept millions of followers on the edge of their seats ever since. In fact, TWD has taught us so much more than any undead movie ever could about what a real zombie apocalypse could mean. For example, have you ever considered what it'd be like to survive if the outbreak lasted more than just a couple days? What about groups that could form after the onset? Thanks to TWD we know that there can be good groups, bad groups, and in-between groups. There are all sorts of dangers besides just the living dead, after all.
Did anyone ever wonder before TWD premiered that the undead could be less dangerous than the other survivors? On The Walking Dead, there are so many communities trying to rebuild in one way or another. A lot of these groups are horrible! Then there are those characters that you feel like you know. It's the characters, places, and things that are all parts of TWD that walkers would know nothing about. Who they are, where they've been, how they've survived, and especially what sort of people they are. Why? Because they're walkers, brainless zombies. They don't feel or think! Any fan of The Walking Dead should be able to ace this quiz, no problem. In fact, if you can't pass this TWD quiz you just might be a walker...
Where did we first see The Walking Dead story?
The idea for TWD didn't just pop up into a producers mind. Much like most phenomenal shows and movies, TWD came from somewhere else first.

Any fan whose still got warm blood and a beating heart would know which of these variations of The Walking Dead came first. Did the idea for TWD TV series come from the comic, video game, app, or are we just fibbing and the show did come first?

Every friendship has its starting point. Unfortunately, we caught Rick Grimes and Shane Walsh's friendship just as it was about to end.

Besides, walkers, what is another term for zombies in TWD?
Before TWD, the animated dead were referred to as zombies, the undead, and the living dead. However, both the comic and the series steer clear of this label.

What's Daryl's weapon of choice?
Specific weapons aren't an issue for most of the survivors on TWD.

Merle wasn't the easiest person to get along with from the Atlanta group of survivors, but could anyone truly deserve to be left behind the way he was?
