The eagerly anticipated season 9 mid-season premiere for 'The Walking Dead' has been leaked onto piracy sites, days before the episode even airs on cable channel AMC.

The episode, 'Adaptation', is set to air on Sunday, but has been available as an early access title on AMC's $4.99 per month on-demand service, AMC Premiere.

The pirated streams and downloads have been marked as a WEBRIP, suggesting that the source of the pirated content has come from a web source, very possibly the AMC Premiere stream itself.

Piracy has not been something unfamiliar with The Pirate Bay, who, in the absence of new episodes of 'Game of Thrones', was crowned the most pirated TV show for 2018.

'The Walking Dead' is itself in the middle of some major changes, with a major character having left the show in the first half of season 9. AMC has also announced a series of standalone movies based on the franchise.
