Inside The Walking Dead: Walker University is a 43-minutes behind-the-scenes documentary special of AMC's The Walking Dead. It originally aired on July 15, 2014 on AMC. It's the second of two specials.[1]


The special follows the journey where extras transform into "walkers", giving an inside perspective on the choreography, acting and motivation behind each zombie, including a look at what takes place at The Walking Dead's own Zombie School.[2][3]

Greg Nicotero visits the newest walker recruits for season five to create a memorable group of zombies. This behind-the-scenes documentary features Nicotero front and center and goes through each step of molding prospective actors into walkers. Cameras rolled while Nicotero journeys through the walker auditioning process. Throughout the special, different producers, actors, stunt coordinators, costume designers and even special effects people discuss continuously refining the process.[4]
