The Walking Dead fans have been left reeling by the news that the drama will be moving to Disney+ in the UK next month.
It comes after the company acquired Fox, with the channel closing in the UK after 17 years and will no longer broadcast on Sky TV and Virgin Media.
All Fox shows, including The Walking Dead, will be available to watch on the Star channel on Disney+ from this summer.
The zombie drama will be ending 2022 with season 11 airing on Disney+.
‘On 30th June the FOX channel in the UK will close. Many titles will become available on Star on Disney+ and will be announced in the near future,’ a spokesperson said in a statement.
‘We appreciate the support of our UK fans and can’t wait to keep sharing the best stories with you.’

It continued: ‘Star on Disney+ serves as the home of movies and television from Disney’s creative studios, including Disney Television Studios (20th Television and ABC Signature), FX Productions and 20th Century Studios.’
It means that viewers who don’t already have a subscription to Disney+ will have to sign up in order to watch the hit drama.
Safe to say, not all fans aren’t impressed by the news.
‘Walking dead is moving to Disney+ in the UK. Not happy about this,’ one wrote on social media after the news broke.
‘Disney are greedy b*******, i’m not paying a subscription to watch the walking dead season 11,’ another added.
The series – starring Norman Reedus (Daryl), Melissa McBride (Carol), and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan) – was based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book, and has terrified fans for around a decade.
The official release date for the final season of the Walking Dead has yet to be confirmed.
All FOX titles will be available to watch on the Star channel on Disney+ from this summer onwards.
