No surprise here, AMC announced today that The Walking Dead would get a fifth season. The zombie-filled series has been downright destroying the competition and it continues to grow.
AMC president, Charlie Collier said in a statement Tuesday. “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.”
