Talking Dead is a live after-show program hosted by Chris Hardwick. Originally the show followed episodes of The Walking Dead but after Fear's initial season (which only had a Talking Dead after the last episode in the season) it was extended to cover Fear the Walking Dead as well. On the show, Hardwick discusses the current episode of FWTD or TWD with celebrity fans, cast members and crew from the series. The series is also interactive as viewers are able to call via a toll-free number or ask questions on social media. The series first began on October 11, 2011 on The Walking Dead, and premiered a version for Fear the Walking Dead on 4th October 2015 following Fear's Season 1 finale episode, "The Good Man".
