Brains! As part of a multi-year contract with AMC Networks, Netflix has added "The Walking Dead" and several other shows from AMC, IFC and the Sundance Channel, according to a press release from Netflix and AMC.
Season 1 of the popular and critically-acclaimed zombie drama "The Walking Dead" will become available immediately, per the release, with other programs like Fred Armisen's "Portlandia," "Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys" and David Cross' "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" following soon after.
Financial terms were not released, but presumably Netflix used some of the money it saved from losing out on Starz earlier this year in the deal.
Season 1 of "The Walking Dead" should be up on Netflix sometime on October 7.
