The Walking Dead will be alive for at least one more season, following AMC’s decision to renew the series for a fifth run.
The Walking Dead is without doubt one of the best and most watched television series in the world. Based on the hit comic books by Image; The Walking dead sees a group of people trying to survive a zombie outbreak.
Due to the success of the show, it’s unsurprising that a fifth season has been booked by AMC. Going by the source material, the show could go on for a hell of a lot longer.
“We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever: The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast. Its expanding base of passionate fans has grown every season, most recently – and most notably – with the season four premiere earlier this month, which broke viewership records for the series and became the biggest non-sports telecast in cable history. On behalf of the incredible team on both sides of the camera, thank you to the fans and here’s to more Dead.”
