Good news for fans of The Walking Dead and companion show Talking Dead.
AMC, the groundbreaking cable network which was also home to hit series Mad Men, has renewed The Walking Dead for a seventh season; a smart move when its consistent high ratings are taken into account.
In a statement released last Friday, AMC TV president Charlie Collier said:
“Thank goodness someone had a Magic 8-Ball with them in our many long internal meetings about these renewals. When, on the third shake, ‘without a doubt’ filled the murky blue screen, we knew we had to proceed with new seasons of The Walking Dead and Talking Dead. All joking aside, we are so proud to share these shows with fans who have been so passionate, communicative and engaged. We are grateful for and continually impressed by the talent, effort and excellence on continuous display by Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Chris Hardwick and the many people with whom we partner to make these unique shows possible. The result: More Walking and Talking. Hooray.”
Aside from TWD, Fear the Walking Dead, and Talking Dead, creator and producer Robert Kirkman has a few new projects in the works, one of which is based on his popular exorcism comic miniseries Outcast, and will air on Cinemax sometime next year.
