If you’ve already seen all the zombie movies and series it has to offer, why not find a nice zombie-related TV series to binge-watch? There are a lot of terrifying and heartbreaking zombies on shows like The Walking Dead though. If there is one horror monster that has really come to life in recent years, it is, ironically, the zombie.
Here are the best zombie shows ranging from horror to comedy, and from drama to action.

Z Nation is, in many ways, the exact opposite of The Walking Dead. The CW’s iZombie (loosely adapted from a comic book series) is a creative blend of comedy, romance, crime, and horror.
The show is based around the life of Olivia “Liv” Moore, a medical resident turned zombie who binge eats brains in the morgue to prevent herself from killing innocent people.
