The Zombie apocalypse is far from over: Rick and co. will return for a fifth season.
AMC revealed Tuesday, the hit comic-book based series has been picked up for a fifth season.
“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,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “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.’”
Scott Gimple will return as showrunner for season five of “Walking Dead.”
“The Walking Dead” airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
