If we talk about Horror TV shows, The Walking Dead is one show you just cannot miss out on. This show is probably one of the longest-running horror shows and even though it got a bit derailed in a few seasons but still kept the essence it began with very much alive to the very end. The Walking Dead takes us to the protagonist, Rick Grimes, a sheriff’s Deputy who got shot during an encounter and went into a coma.

However, when he woke up, the world as he knew it was gone and was taken over by the undead. Amongst all this madness, he sets out on a mission to find his wife and son which leads to an epic journey altogether.
