It’s the question we’ve all been asking ourselves since it was announced that the second season of Fear the Walking Dead would take place, in part, on the sea, but now we definitely know the answer to the question:
Can zombies swim?
Kind of. I don’t think Olympic swimmers have anything to be concerned out. The zombies’ ability to “swim” can best be described as a lumbering while floating. It’s a frightening sight, to be sure, but not a particularly lethal one because escaping a swimming zombie is basically like escaping a floating volleyball. I suppose that, if one were surrounded on all sides by swimming zombies and also couldn’t swim, floating zombies might pose an actual threat, but otherwise, they seem to be even less menacing than the largely decomposed land zombies of The Walking Dead.
