The higher ups over at AMC certainly have a lot BRAAAAAAINS because they made the wise decision to renew The Walking Dead for another season!
And while the plot of the show itself many have its twists and turns, this news is far from a huge surprise seeing how we reported earlier that the show's season 4 premiere ate through ratings records!
“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're so glad we can all be infected with Walking Dead fever for another season, and that our Walker Halloween costumes will still be relevant for another year!
Congrats to the cast, crew, and zombie horde!
