The Walking Dead’s black and white pilot will air in the US during a marathon of the show next month.
AMC has announced that the alternate version of the series opener will receive its world premiere on July 8, preceded by all 19 episodes of the series.
The drama series will also include a sneak preview of Walking Dead season three. It will feature introductions and supplementary material courtesy of Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick.
On July 8, a live primetime special edition of Talking Dead will air at 9pm followed by the pilot at 10pm.
The alternate pilot was “created specifically for fans of The Walking Dead”, which is based on an Image Comics series that is rendered in black and white.
The Walking Dead returns for its third season in October.
