Rick, Daryl, and Carol will be getting a new home on Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland this summer. All ten seasons, including the final eleventh season, will arrive on Disney+ later this year.
A cultural phenomenon, The Walking Dead is an action-packed drama based on the comic books written by Robert Kirkman. It follows a group of survivors, led by former police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), struggling to survive after a zombie apocalypse. As the world overrun by the dead takes its toll, their interpersonal conflicts present a greater danger to their survival than the walkers that roam the country. This global smash-hit has built up a legion of fans across the world.
When is ‘The Walking Dead’ Coming To Disney Plus Star UK?

Season 11 will premiere on Monday 23rd August on Star on Disney+ and has been confirmed as the final season of the series. Viewers will be able to see how this epic story concludes, exclusively on Disney+ in the UK.
