What with season four of The Walking Dead currently airing on AMC, news has come that the zombie series will continue for yet another season. Like we didn’t think it wouldn’t, eh? So, get ready for more zombie madness as The Walking Dead will return for a fifth season.
In a press release from AMC, Charlie Collier, AMC president, revealed the following;
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. 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.
We can also confirm that Scott Gimple will return as showrunner for the fifth season of The Walking Dead.
So, you guys excited for more?
