Walking Dead has been renewed for a 5th season!
Deadline is reporting that AMC has renewed The Walking Dead for a 5th season. We know this isn’t huge news because of how ridiculous the ratings are, but we thought we would let you know all the same.
“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 in a statement Tuesday. “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.” Today’s announcememt also stated that showrunner Scott Gimple will continue with the series along with EPs Gale Anne Hurd and Robert Kirkman, who created the comic series on which The Walking Dead TV show is based.
