Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
THE WALKING DEAD Season 6 began with Alexandria's safety shattered by multiple threats. To make it, the people of Alexandria are learning that they will need to catch up with our survivors’ hardness while many of our survivors will need to take a step back from the violence and pragmatism they've needed to embrace. These reversals of roles aren't happening easily. Or without conflict.
The group is fighting for something more than survival... They're fighting for their home, and they will defend that at any cost, against any threat. Even if that threat comes from within.
Big news comes in today for the show as AMC has announced that they have renewed THE WALKING DEAD for a seventh season. In addition, AMC has renewed TALKING DEAD, hosted by Chris Hardwick with new episodes to follow THE WALKING DEAD.
The October 25th episode of THE WALKING DEAD delivered 18.2 million viewers, 12 million adults 18-49 and 11.5 million adults 25-54 in live+3 ratings, which include three days of time-shifted viewing – each growing compared to last season’s corresponding episode #503. Last Sunday’s TALKING DEAD was its highest-rated episode ever that was not a premiere or a finale, delivering 7.3 million viewers, 4.6 million adults 18-49 and 4.7 million adults 25-54 in live+3.
“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" said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “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.”
For the seventh season, Scott M. Gimple will return as the series’ showrunner and executive producer, along with executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.
THE WALKING DEAD airs Sundays on AMC.
