AMC Renews ‘The Walking Dead’ for a Second Season

Just one day after the broadcast of its second deliciously gory episode, The Walking Dead has been renewed by AMC for a whole new season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the breakout zombie series has broken ratings records and is watched by more people between 18-49 years old than any other show on American cable television. Sharon Tal Yguado, Fox International Channels’ SVP of Scripted Programming, told THR, “I wish all programming decisions were no brainers like this one.” (But was the pun intended?)Based on the hit Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and illustrated primarily by Charlie Adlard, The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln as a man who wakes from a coma to discover the world has fallen victim to a zombie apocalypse, and depicts his struggle to survive.

“The Dead has spread!” said Charlie Collier, President, AMC. “No other cable series has ever attracted as many Adults 18-49 as The Walking Dead. This reaffirms viewers’ hunger for premium television on basic cable. We are so proud to be bringing back The Walking Dead again, across the globe.”

Yguado added, “The Walking Dead is a TV masterpiece on so many levels. We want at least 10 seasons, if not more.”

If for some reason you missed the record-breaking premiere episode of The Walking Dead, you can watch it right here on ComicsAlliance, courtesy of AMC and Hulu.
