  • The Wildfire Virus is discovered by the Center for Disease Control. The virus is airborne as it begins infecting people and remains dormant until after death, when the brainstem is reactivated and the body is reanimated. Reanimation can occur anywhere from one minute to eight hours after death. Due to the brainstem solely being reactivated, the reanimated act on a mindless instinct of survival and will devour any living being. The bodily fluids of the reanimated, such as saliva and blood, become active vectors of the virus. Transmission of bodily fluids from the reanimated to a healthy bloodstream will cause an infection. In response, the body reacts with a cytokine storm that is 100% fatal to those infected. However, if bitten on a limb, survival can be achieved by amputating an infected limb. If unable to prevent the spread, the infected will die anywhere within 48 hours after initial infection. Many times, blood-loss kills the infected before the infection can. (Wildfire)

Real-life Time Period

  • It has been established through various mediums and sources that the apocalypse began in 2010. Similar to how the apocalypse in the comic series began in 2003 when Issue 1 was released, the apocalypse in the television series universe began in the same year the main show premiered.
    • It was first confirmed in the episode Date of Death, which takes place several weeks after the Global Outbreak, that the apocalypse took place in 2010 as graves of recently deceased characters were marked with the date of death as 2010.
  • Although the exact date of the Global Outbreak was unknown, it was established that it occurred sometime in August 2010.
    • In So Close, Yet So Far, a sign can be seen that bares the date "08.07.10", or August 7, 2010, and advertises a "library week". The fact that the sign is up would indicate that this library week is coming up soon, or has recently passed and the sign has not yet been taken down.
    • A flashback in Omega shows a young Lydia asking about Halloween coming up and preparing a costume 23 days after the Global Outbreak. This further confirms that the Global Outbreak occurred in August or September.
    • In Remember, Deanna Monroe, an Ohio Congresswoman, mentioned to Rick Grimes that before the Global Outbreak, she was running for reelection in the 2010 mid-term and that she was prepared to become a professional poker player if she lost. The 2010 mid-term elections were November 2nd, 2010, indicating that the Global Outbreak occurred before November 2010.
    • The end of the main show's second season begins to exhibit late autumn/early winter weather, as expressed by the characters. This occurs nearly three months after the Global Outbreak. With the Global Outbreak occurring in August 2010, it correlates how winter began three months later in November 2010.
    • During the events of The Last Light, it was revealed on Jennifer Mallick's watch that the current date was October 26, 2020. Due to the fact that this episode takes place approximately 61 days after the 10th anniversary of Monument Day on August 27, 2020; this confirms that the Global Outbreak occurred on August 25, 2010.
    • In Here's Negan, a flashback shows Lucille Smith receiving her diagnosis of pancreatic cancer shortly before the Global Outbreak. In an attempt to call her husband, Negan Smith, and her best friend, Janine - her phone history states the date as November 12th. This is a likely error, as the episode's production was shot during mid-November and does not correlate to previously stated time periods of the Global Outbreak.
    • A similar error was made in the Pilot of Fear the Walking Dead as security footage of Nicholas Clark leaving the Temple Community Hospital shortly before the Global Outbreak is marked with the date of February 2015, which was when the episode's production occurred - as opposed to the current story taking place in August 2010.
  • In Killer Within, the Governor suggests to Merle Dixon that they should visit Augusta and take only the women to let them play, remarking that it would be historic. Merle argues, "And break decades of tradition?" They are referring to the Augusta National Golf Club, which, until August 2012, did not allow women to be members. This would place the onset of the outbreak prior to August 2012. It is to be noted that this episode was written prior to August 2012.
  • In Skidmark, Daniel Salazar keeps a calendar. The episode opens on October 12th, 2013. The episode ends two days later on October 14th, 2013.
  • In the episode Scars, a flashback takes place eight months after the disappearance of Rick Grimes in What Comes After. Over the course of several days, the flashback is during Halloween - based on the decorations, costumes, and party in Alexandria - making it October 31st, 2014.
  • The episode Find Me is told through multiple flashbacks detailing the relationship between Daryl Dixon and Leah Shaw. Nearly three and a half years after the disappearance of Rick Grimes, and four years before the episode's present timeline, Daryl and Leah observe the August 21st, 2017 solar eclipse.
  • The episode New Haunts takes place during Halloween 2022 - making it the second time the holiday was celebrated since the flashbacks in the episode, Scars.
  • The Raft of Fear the Walking Dead currently takes place in August 2014. The final season of The Walking Dead currently takes place in 2022. The last episode will air sometime in 2022. Interestingly, the apocalypse began when the show premiered in 2010 and will end with the show in 2022.
