AMC Picks Up The Walking Dead for Season 7

In not-very-shocking news, AMC has picked up the #1 show on TV among adults 18-49 – The Walking Dead – for a Season 7.

In linked news, the network has also renewed after-show Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick, for another year.

The third episode of The Walking Dead: Season 6 delivered 18.2 million viewers in its Live+3 ratings, with a breakdown of 12 million adults 18-49 and 11.5 million adults 25-54.

“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.”
