Fans of The Walking Dead can’t get enough of the show. Not only does the AMC hit regularly attract more viewers than most network shows, but the after show, dubbed Talking Dead and hosted by Chris Hardwick, also beats many network shows. After last season’s finale 5.2 million people kept the channel on to watch people talk about The Walking Dead.
Now those fans can get some real education with their zombies. AMC, the University of California Irvine and educational tech company Instructure are teaming up to offer a massive open online course to look at a broad range of scholarly topics through the lense of The Walking Dead.
