With The Walking Dead’s Season 10 finale on the horizon, Amazon is getting in the zombie spirit too with the debut of spin-off series The Walking Dead: World Beyond. That horror mood continues later in the month with the debut of four new original films co-produced with Blumhouse – not to mention, just in time for Halloween, spooky comedy series Truth Seekers from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video UK in October 2020:
