AMC’s The Walking Dead Finally Confirms Exact Timeline Since Outbreak

Wait - it's only been how long since the outbreak?


In the past, Robert Kirkman hinted at the idea that it has been around three years since the outbreak when Negan arrived on The Walking Dead. Now, this doesn’t make any sense in terms of Carl Grimes’ age, but the news numbers are even more confusing.

Last week, the official The Walking Dead twitter page announced that it had only been around years since the outbreak and when Rick met Jadis. “Day 0 of the apocalypse vs Day 632” wrote the fan account.

The conversation starter for fans has mostly been dedicated to Lori’s baby Judith, but this number doesn’t even really make sense. Perhaps the post was a joke, but AMC should know that Dead fans take this stuff very seriously.
