This show is very adult in nearly every way. There is occasional smoking, a fair amount of drinking (there are barely any scenes with anyone more than a little buzzed), sexual content, violence, gore, tension, suspense, and things like that. Main characters and kids are killed and it's not always in the most peaceful ways if you know what I mean. Children and main characters are also frequently put in perilous, dangerous, scary, and gruesome situations and the show doesn't do much at all to spare the light-hearted. If youre worried about the sexual content alone then don't be. Its nothing that most teenagers haven't seen before. To help more I'll tell you the most sexual scenes in the show so far: a woman in her bra(she later takes that off too but nothing is seen), a woman grabbing a man's crotch to indicate she wants to have sex(but he's fully clothed when this happens), and a woman and man undressing for sex but no actual sex or body parts are seen. There are many sexual references but visually that's about as bad as it gets. The main problem I would consider is that this show gets very gory and violent. Characters bond and show good connections, grow up and grow as people, and do show good habits. The horror is mostly in the horrific look and actions of the zombies. You don't need to worry much about jump scares as there are only a few and they're pretty cheap as well as predictable. There is a lot of suspense and tension in this show. But there's also a fair amount of good messages and people. People going insane in a variety of ways for a number of different reasons is frequent as much of the show revolves around the impact the zombie apocalypse has on the survivors. A show you can't miss an episode of, I suggest watching it on Netflix where they have five of the current six seasons available. Overral, this show is great and rather addictive for the strong hearted and if some edgy sexual content, gore and violence of all kinds, and a few dark moments (plus the rather obvious horror element) can be handled this show is really great.
