AMC’s hit series “The Walking Dead” returns for its fifth consecutive Halloween Horror Nights Orlando appearance at Halloween Horror Nights 26.
“The Walking Dead” has almost become a staple of the annual event at Universal Studio’s Orlando and is greeted each year with mixed reactions. But with its large viewership, dedicated fans, and much talked about sixth season cliffhanger, it’s hard to argue the popularity of the franchise or the decision to include it Halloween Horror Nights once again.
With the controversial cliff hanger and a season that keeps the core Walking Dead characters largely confined to the Alexandria community, how does the creative team approaching bring The Walking Dead back to HHN?
The solution is pretty simple, and one that honestly makes me more excited about the idea of traversing a Walking Dead house again – make this new house a representation of the entire series run so far.
The announcement today of the addition of “The Walking Dead” to Halloween Horror Nights 26 promises many iconic scenes from the all seasons of the series: Hershel’s barn, The Governor’s Walker collection, and Terminus. The announcement also offers a glimpse of season six specific moments from the series that will be featured; the attack on Alexandria by the Wolves and a possible sighting or The Saviors.
The Walking Dead at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando isn’t this first big Walking Dead announcement from a Universal Studios park made this year – July 4th, an all-new year-round The Walking Dead attraction will open at Universal Studios Hollywood.
