AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ has been renewed for a seventh season. In addition, it’s companion show, ‘Talking Dead,’ has also been renewed.
AMC 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.”
Scott M. Gimple will be returning as showrunner and executive producer, along with Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse. Season seven will premiere in 2016.
