For all those who don’t have time to binge all six seasons of The Walking Dead to get primed and ready for the season 7 premiere on Oct. 23, AMC has announced it will air a two-hour retrospective special titled The Walking Dead: Journey So Far from 9-11 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16. The special will feature interviews with key cast and executive producers along with “clips from the most pivotal moments in series history.”

Here’s how AMC describes the special in a press release sent out by the network:

“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.”

And that new season will kick off the following Sunday on Oct. 23 with a premiere that director Greg Nicotero calls ‘the most emotional episode I’ve ever shot.”
