This news comes with no surprise with Disney buying Fox a few years back. This will mean, those Fox shows will need a new home like The Walking Dead. That new home will be Disney+ and Disney+ Star brand.

For nearly two decades subscribers to Sky and Virgin Media have had access to the channels shows. Now they’ll need a subscription to the House Of Mouse streaming channel.

The Walking Dead started in 2010 fast becoming one of the biggest Television shows in the world. Over the years the popularity has dipped however through those years (including ourselves) it has always had a loyal fanbase who will watch the show until the end. The show starred Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes and followed their lives as they attempt to survive the zombie apocalypse. Lincoln left the show a couple of seasons ago, however rumours a rife that Rick Grimes may return sometime in the final season.
