The Walking Dead Will Revisit Six Seasons of Mayhem in a Two-Hour Special
It's been a long and winding road with The Walking Dead for the last six years, starting with that amazingly cinematic pilot and finishing with that terrible cliffhanger finale last year. Now, we get to revisit the entire series with a two-hour retrospective on AMC on October 16, one week before the seventh season premiere.

According EW, the special will contain "clips from the most pivotal moments in [the] series' history," as well as interviews with the cast and producers. I'm not sure the way to get back the fans' goodwill is airing a clip show, but the interviews sound interesting, and it probably couldn't hurt at this point.

The press release summarized the special as follows:
Opening quote
"Season by season, from the moment Rick wakes up in the hospital (as told by Andrew Lincoln), all the way to the excruciating first swing of Negan's bat (told by Jeffery Dean Morgan and others in the lineup), the story of "The Walking Dead" will be told by those who have lived it. "The Walking Dead: Journey So Far" gives viewers who have never seen an episode of "The Walking Dead" a chance to get all caught up on the plot, characters, locations, and unique terminology of the series as well as providing fans who've never missed a moment with fresh interviews with the series' producers and their favorite actors as part of an exciting refresher course that will further whet their appetite for the new season."
Closing quote

The Walking Dead returns for season seven on October 23.
