The Walking Dead is a leading zombie action thriller that garnered the love and affection of hordes of fans, but if you’ve finished watching the series, there’s no need for despair. There are plenty of movies and TV shows to watch if you like The Walking Dead.

TV shows similar to The Walking Dead often feature zombies, monsters, and just about as much action and intense drama anyone can handle. If you’re looking for more deadly excitement, Fear the Walking Dead is sure to fill the void. This show is a companion series or spinoff to the original, and it features all the same thrills and chills in an entirely different setting. And if you think there aren’t also some good movies like The Walking Dead, then think again, because we’ve found quite a few that are sure to tickle the fancies of even the hardest-to-please fans. Take Dawn of the Dead, for instance. This movie is basically The Walking Dead if it were more intense and shot in a single film, and is a great choice for any zombie-lovin' fan.

But you don’t have to take our word for it - some of The Walking Dead’s biggest fans have chimed in and cast their votes for the best movies and TV shows like TWD, and once you’ve watched, you can cast your votes too!
