Sex & Nudity

  • At the beginning of season five, it is revealed that men were raping women at a compound. In a very brief scene, they are shown choosing a girl to rape, where she begs, "not again," and they drag her off screaming.
  • Across the entire series, there is limited sex and nudity. There are rare occasions of brief sexual situation), but no actual nudity.
  • Condoms have been discussed.

Violence & Gore

  • Season 8: Halfway Finished and quite violent. the first few episodes had gunfire and brawls..They often end up with a bit of blood being seen, some of which include zombies attacking people with a bit blood seen. Not very intense. The most violent part was wen a characters army is wiped out by a 50.caliber machine gun but there is not much blood seen. This scene was rather like in action movies.
  • S1E1: 2:20, visual of a decomposing body, brief
  • S1E1: 4:16, the death of a (zombie) child.
  • s1e1: 9:20, dead animal being eaten by crows
  • In a brief scene you see a zombie with a piece of meat in his mouth. Blood is seen dripping from his mouth.
  • In some episodes you briefly see body parts lying around. This is not very graphic.
  • Almost all episodes of this series contain moderate depictions of violence, with rather infrequent shootings and/or scenes of zombies attacking humans and the latter shooting and using various weapons on the former, with sometimes (a bit) blood visible.
  • A variety of weapons are used to kill zombies. Throughout the show many zombies are seen in various states of decay, sometimes with bone being exposed.
  • The series has a focus on what humanity is left in a world after humanity is extinct. As the series progresses violent conflicts between people begin to arise.
  • All of the fighting and killing of zombies takes place within the context of self-defense, rather than with any sadistic intent or relish, and within a firmly established fantasy context.
  • Season 1: Contains shootings and a few stabbings against zombies.
  • Season 2: Contains a few fairly graphic scenes with more blood visible.
  • Season 3: This season is probably the most tame season. It includes a few shootings and corpses with blood visible.
  • Season 4: All sixteen episode contain moderate violence, with a few humans and many zombies dying in various ways. Some of the worst violence show a few characters being beaten and shot or being attacked by walkers. This season is also not very violent.
  • Season 5: Probably the most violent season to date, but still not overly violent. The violence really spikes up and it is way more bloody but it is also over the top and very unrealistic. The worst scene shows a decapitation of a zombie but it is relatively far away and no blood is seen.
  • Season 6: This season is fairly violent across all episodes. For example in a woman gets hit by a man and her swollen face is visibly shown in a later scene. A woman's abdomen is sliced (OUT OF FOCUS). It is mentioned that the woman died from that.
  • Season 7: A bit more violent than season 4. There is a scene where characters are killed by a sadistic man. Not overly graphic because it is dark and you hardly see anything of that. Other main characters are forced to watch. We hear and see them screaming and crying throughout.


  • Profanity is used sparingly, with the word "shit" being the strongest said a few times every episode. "Bitch", "asshole", "dick", "prick", "pussy", and "jerk-off" are infrequently used. Other than that the only regular profanity is quite mild (such as "ass", "hell", "piss", and "damn").
  • There are also limited instances of religious profanity such as "Oh my God," "Jesus!" or "Christ!"
  • Most of the potentially offensive language comes from a bigoted character who's portrayed negatively. As such, other slurs used in his presence include "nigger", "rug-muncher", and "taco-bender".
  • The middle finger is seen on a few occasions.
  • The word "fuck" is used in multiple episodes. Quite surprising for a TV-14 rating.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Alcohol is consumed in some episodes.
  • Some characters smoke cigarettes.
  • References to hard drugs are made rarely and are not depicted in use.
  • Bob is an alcoholic.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Though most of the episodes are scary, some of the episodes aren't scary at all. This show is recommended for a teen audience and no one under 13 though 14 is probably the best age to start with the show.
  • Children and animals are sometimes seen getting abducted, dying. This can be emotionally intense.
  • s1e1: 10:51, car case, resulting in a car crash
  • This show is rated TV-14 and is intended for teens and older though teens will like it the most because of the sometimes soapy relationships.
  • The overall tone of the series is quite dark and gritty. Fight scenes are absolutely not styalized and they are often filmed with a shaky cam. That could scare preteens.

Violence & Gore

  • Also Season 7: Two main characters are tortured with a taser but the scene is not graphic and it doesn't last long enough to be that intense.
  • s1e1: 11:22, a man starts a gun fight with the cops, shots one of the police(in the stomach), and the criminal ends up dying from bullet wounds. Little blood is seen in this scene.
