The Walking Dead and 9 Other Great TV Shows Now Available On Plex

Lauren Cohan on The Walking Dead

As we have in the past, CinemaBlend has partnered with Plex to talk about everything from its vast library of movies and shows spanning multiple genres to the abundance of content on the easy-to-use Live TV on Plex function with its scores of channels. Since its launch, the live TV function has given Plex users the opportunity to sink into the couch and binge never-ending marathons of classic game shows, sitcoms from television’s golden years, and more. That collection of streaming content just grew exponentially with the arrival of several AMC channels, giving viewers access to shows like The Walking Dead and much, much more.

The newly added channels to Live TV on Plex (opens in new tab) include AMC Presents, Slightly Off, All Weddings, Absolute Reality, IFC Film Selections and RUSH by AMC.

The following are some of the shows that air on these channels...

Steven Yeun on The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead

Fans of The Walking Dead who want to relive the saga of Philip Blake (David Morrissey), aka The Governor can do just that (and more) on the AMC Presents channel on Plex. Seasons 2 through 5 are currently available on Plex, meaning users can follow Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), and the rest of the cast as they stumble into the farm, journey to the prison, and beyond, meeting some of the show’s most significant characters along the way. And although the latest seasons aren’t yet available on Plex, having free access to some of the show’s best moments isn’t a bad deal at all.

Catch it on AMC Presents.

Norman Reedus and Dave Chappelle on Ride with Norman Reedus

Ride With Norman Reedus

Since we’re on the topic of The Walking Dead, now’s the perfect time to talk about the motorcycle docuseries featuring one of the show’s fan-favorite actors. Those who just can’t get enough of Daryl Dixon but don’t have the heart (or stomach) to relive the gore and heartbreak of the hit AMC zombie series should check out Ride with Norman Reedus, which as the name implies, features the actor taking to the open highway with a slew of celebrity guests. The three four seasons — including the Boondock Saints reunion — are currently streaming for free on Plex.

Ian Kahn on Turn: Washington's Spies

Turn: Washington’s Spies

The AMC content on Plex doesn’t start or end with The Walking Dead as there are other notable show’s from the network’s library of series available on the free streaming service. Take Turn: Washington’s Spies for example. Users can watch all four seasons of the period drama based on the Culper Ring of spies active during the height of the American Revolutionary War. With plenty of drama, action, realized performances, and some 18th Century spycraft, this exciting and oftentimes intense series has a little bit of something for everyone.

Catch it on AMC Presents.

Daniel Wu on Into the Badlands

Into The Badlands

Television shows set in a dystopian future have been all the rage for the better part of a decade now, but few capture the brutality and resilience of the human condition better than Into the Badlands. Set in a war-tattered civilization 500 years in the future that has banished modern weapons (while holding on to such inventions as electricity and motor vehicles), the show follows the survivors as they fall into a feudal-like system similar to the Middle Ages, including melee weapons and crossbows. All three seasons of Into the Badlands can be streamed on Live TV on Plex.

Catch it on AMC Presents.

The cast of Freakshow


AMC has had its fair share of unscripted shows over the years, with one of the most bizarre being the 2013 series Freakshow, which as the name implies, centers on the Venice Beach Freakshow and its various performers. All of the staples of the classic sideshow attraction setup are found here, including a giant, bearded lady, sword-swallowers and more. On top of all of that, Freakshow does a tremendous job of humanizing the so-called freaks and shows a side of them that is often overlooked. Combine all of that with travels to the multiple locations throughout the United States (including Florida), and you have yourself a recipe for hours spent locked on the couch.

Stream it on AMC Presents.

Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen on Portlandia


Portlandia, IFC’s long-running satirical sketch comedy program starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, is just one of the shows from one of the networks in the AMC family streaming on Plex. This sardonic and hilarious exploration of the Oregon metropolis doesn’t hold back in its representation of the various inhabitants of the city. With everyone from the Mayor of Portland (Kyle MacLachlan) to employees of the Women and Women First bookstore (Armisen and Bradshaw) and even groups of eccentric eco-terrorists aren’t spared over the course of the show.

Stream it on Slightly Off.

Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts on Comedy Bang! Bang!

Comedy Bang Bang

There are talk shows and then there are absurdist variations of the genre like the IFC series Comedy Bang! Bang! This farcical series featuring Scott Aukerman playing a spoof of himself along with various co-hosts and celebrity guests was consistently one of the funniest shows when it aired between 2012 and 2016. While not all seasons are available on Plex (maybe they’ll be added), Season 2 is as good a place as any to start or start over, even if it is to hear the smooth vocals of one Reggie Watts.

Stream it on Slightly Off.

Michael C. Hall on Documentary Now!

Documentary Now!

Anytime four Saturday Night Live writers and stars come together for a mockumentary television series you know you’re in for a good time. Such is the case for the IFC series Documentary Now!, which spent three seasons presenting fake stories or fictional takes on historical events with a slew of big-name comedians and actors taking over ridiculous characters. Seasons 2 and 3 are streaming on Plex, which means you can check out the stellar “Any Given Saturday Afternoon,” which centers on the return of a defunct bowling league and its biggest stars.

Stream it on Slightly Off.

Shannon Sarich on Bridezillas


Plex also features the All Weddings channel which is the home to none other than Bridezillas, the long-running reality series showing off some of the most entitled couples leading up to and on their big day. This show is insane, like actually insane. Despite that, people love it (and for good reason). And plus, how many times has someone watched this show and said something along the lines of “I would never do that,” only to find themselves yelling at the tent company 12 hours before their wedding demanding they bring the dance floor (not talking from personal experience).

Stream it on All Weddings.

Kendra Wilkinson on Kendra on Top

Kendra On Top

Speaking of reality television… the WE series Kendra on Top, Seasons 1 through 6, can be found on the Absolute Reality channel. The show follows the day-to-day life of former Playboy model and star of The Girls Next Door Kendra Wilkinson as she attempts to balance time between her family and increasingly busy professional career. And while not as flashy as her previous E! reality programs, Wilkinson doesn’t hold back here.

Stream it on Absolute Reality.

All of these shows and more are now available to enjoy on Live TV on Plex (opens in new tab), giving users access to hundreds of hours of content without spending a much as a penny. And this doesn’t even begin to touch on the moves that are streaming on the IFC Films Selections and RUSH by AMC channels that are also now on Plex.

Philip Sledge
Philip Sledge

Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop yelling at the mailman, or yelling about professional wrestling to his wife. If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
