The newest season of popular horror drama series, The Walking Dead, starring British actor Andrew Lincoln, is right around the corner.

This week, Mediacom has released full access to season 5 of The Walking Dead to Mediacom On Demand, so viewers can catch up on the show before Season 6 premieres next month.

The show is free to all Mediacom cable subscribers, and the offer is extended until Sept. 26.

The Walking Dead premiered back in 2010 on Halloween and since has been renewed five times due to increasingly high TV ratings. Well-received by critics, the TV series has been nominated for a number of awards, such as the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series—Drama and the Writer’s Guild of America Award for Television: New Series.

Along with watching The Walking Dead, the show’s companion and prequel series, Fear the Walking Dead, will also be available to subscribers. The prequel, starring Kim Dickens, premiered Aug. 23 on AMC and is set in Los Angeles, California, amidst a zombie apocalypse.

All episodes of The Walking Dead season 6 will also be available in On Demand the day after each episode airs on AMC.

To access both The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead on Mediacom On Demand, viewers can use the On Demand button located on their Mediacom remote, or turn to channel 1. The Walking Dead Season 6 premieres at 8 p.m. C.S.T. Sun., Oct. 11 on AMC.
