There really is no stopping the zombie apocalypse, so it’s no wonder that AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead has been renewed for a seventh season. The show has an extremely loyal fan base and the last episode drew almost 20 million viewers. It’s hard to imagine a world without the Walking Dead, but luckily, we know that that time will not be anytime soon.
The after-show The Talking Dead with Chris Hardwick will also be returning, so those of you who enjoy dissecting the episodes once they’ve aired can look forward to even more of that too. When speaking about the return of both of these shows Charlie Collier (President of AMC) has said, “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.”
Series showrunner Scott M. Gimple and executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse will all be returning to bring season 7 back to our screens.
