The Walking Dead may be on hiatus, but that doesn’t mean that the undead are at rest. In this week’s episode of Science Channel’s Through The Wormhole with Morgan Freeman, we get a glimpse into the science behind the horror of zombies. Is it possible that humans could be transformed into shuffling, rotting corpses who want nothing more than to eat your brains? Through the Wormhole consults with pathologists on the most dangerous viruses, mathematicians on the odds of surviving an outbreak, and neuroscientists on whether it would be possible to lose conscious control and revert to our most basic instinct of survival – no matter the cost (or taste).
Be prepared for some nightmares. Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman airs this Wednesday, June 25th at 10pm ET/PT on Science Channel.
