Also this October, BET is presenting a ground-breaking anthology series called Tales, whose plotlines are inspired by hip hop hits from N.W.A’s *** tha Police to Meek Mill’s Cold Hearted and the Notorius BIG anthem I Got a Story to Tell.

Our favourite survivors return to FOX (DStv channel 125) on Monday, 23 October at 7pm. The last time we saw Rick, his life was saved by Ezekiel, Maggie and the tiger. We’re sure Neagan is not happy at all with how things left off, so he’ll probably have a few tricks up his sleeves. We can’t wait to see what The Walking Dead S8 will serve up on Monday evenings.
