The Walking Dead Reimagined As A Sitcom Could Actually Work

By : Ben Hayward |



Ever wondered what The Walking Dead reimagined as a sitcom might look like? 

Well, thanks to the U.S version of Red Nose Day, you don’t have to wonder any more.

Some of the biggest stars showed up to America’s Red Nose Day yesterday (Thursday), but the cast of The Walking Dead spoofing the Star Wars Holiday Special has got to be the best of the bunch, reports Digital Spy.

The sketch opens with Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Norman Reedus (Daryl) having some down time – complete with some pretty awesome crested dressing gowns.

Their ‘assistant’ or more accurately, Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene on the show delivers them a couple of smoothies before Norman points out that Andrew has some fake blood on his face, sparking a moment of contemplation…


Andrew wonders:

Don’t you just wish you could do something lighter? It would be kind of amazing – freeing, to do something completely different.

To which Norman responds:

Yeah, something that would bring sweetness and light into the world…


What follows is pretty tricky to describe, but it involves Chris Hardwick dressed as Han Solo, David Morrissey dressed as Elvis Presley, and – in an example of the casting stars aligning – Jeff Goldblum as Professor Reginald Dixon.

As much as we would all love the spin off, alas, it shan’t happen…
