The Walking Dead is a top-rated franchise based on the American post-apocalyptic comic book series created by writer Robert Kirkman. The plot takes place after the onset of a worldwide zombie apocalypse. The series focuses on sheriff’s deputy Rick Grimes, who rouses from a coma. While unconscious, the world has been taken over by walkers. He becomes the commander of a group of survivors from the Atlanta, Georgia, region. They try to sustain and defend themselves against invasions by walkers and other groups of survivors inclined to use any means to stay alive.
The plot is set in a universe where the human population is infected by an untreatable virus that turns humankind into flesh-eating monsters known as “walkers.” The mutation is triggered after the death of the pathogen’s host, and the only way to permanently exterminate a walker is to sabotage its brain or destroy the body entirely, such as by cremating it. The show is a massive franchise that has released and reported six franchises and numerous video games.
