article imageZombie horror The Walking Dead walks into a fifth season

It’s been confirmed that the guts-and-gore zombie show The Walking has been renewed for a fifth season, and Scott Gimple will continue as showrunner.
The drama, which began on cable channel AMC in 2010, is based on the comic-book series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, and stars British actor Andrew Lincoln (Heartbreaker, Made in Dagenham) as a sheriff’s deputy who wakes from a coma to find himself in a post-apocalyptic world populated by flesh-eating zombies.
AMC’s president, Charlie Collier, is quoted by Digital Spy as saying: “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.”
Collier goes on: “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.”
Indeed, the cult show drew its largest audience in the show’s history, with 16.1 million people tuning in for the season premiere on October 13.
A new mini-documentary celebrating ten years of the phenomenon was premiered at New York Comic Con earlier this month.
The Walking Dead: A Decade of Dead incorporates the history of the popular comic-book series and the subsequent television franchise.
