About This Quiz

The Walking Dead is a blood-soaked, violent and occasionally heart-touching American television series based on a comic book series by the same name. The comic books, which were written by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, were first published in 2003 and after winning several awards, it was picked up and adapted into the television series by AMC which first premiered in the fall of 2010.

Set in a post apocalyptic world, the series is centered around the lead character Rick Grimes, who after being in a coma, wakes up to find the world which he once knew is now overrun by zombies. Throughout the first five seasons, we see him and his newfound family of survivors struggle to find food, fight off zombies  and opposing groups of survivors alike.

The villains are usually not the undead, leading to one of the show's underlying themes that we humans are our own biggest enemies.

Now in the middle of its 8th season, let's take a look back at some of the best and most memorable moments from the first 5 seasons. Just how much do you remember? Do you know the timeline of certain events? And would you be able to identify a character from season 1 if you were shown one? There is only one way to find out, and that's by taking this quiz!
