‘The Walking Dead’ hosts huge premiere for fans in New York
NEW YORK— A premiere Friday (Saturday, Manila time) for season six of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” at New York’s Madison Square Garden was so big and orchestrated, its stars attended a rehearsal that afternoon to prepare.
The event, which awarded fans with tickets via giveaways and sweepstakes, screened the season six premiere and then held a panel with 18 cast members.
The red carpet itself was moved inside at the last minute due to rain and wind. But that didn’t keep away the fans, many who dressed as zombies, or “walkers,” as they’re called on the series.
“The Walking Dead” is about people trying to survive in a zombie apocalypse.
It premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern. In Manila, it premieres Monday.
