PewDiePie, who rose to YouTube prominence by filming videos of himself playing games, has caused a social media meltdown after he caved in to calls from his fans to finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season and uploaded his playthrough to his channel.
Many have been worried that the YouTuber would never finish the game, which is based on the eponymous comic, because his channel has moved away from that in the past few years, having mainly focused on Meme reviews, Pew News, hilarious challenges and his subscriber war with Indian music label T-Series.

HOOOOOLY PEWDIEPIE FINALLY RECORDED THE WALKING DEAD AAAAAAA— ♫ Initiation (@InitiationMusic) 22 апреля 2019 г.
Aside from the fact that the fans missed old Pewds, their interest was fuelled by the fact that Telltale Games suddenly shut down the game development studio seven months ago before it could finish The Walking Dead: The Final Season. The adventure video game starts with a well-known zombie apocalypse scenario and is focused on the journey of Clementine, a girl who travels with survivor groups and fights the walking dead.
For a while, fans of Clementine's adventure were concerned about their favourite character's fate, fearing they would never see the end of her journey; but luckily, Skybound Games interfered to give the series a proper ending.
