Shocker! AMC Renews The Walking Dead for Season 7
Brace yourselves for some shocking news.....AMC just renewed The Walking Dead for a seventh season! Yes, in probably one of the most-predictable announcements the TV industry has to offer, AMC has confirmed that they will be continuing to produce episodes of a show that regularly ranks among the highest rated dramas on TV.

It's not just The Walking Dead that was renewed, though. Chris Hardwick's companion series, The Talking Dead, was also renewed. Such is the power of AMC's zombie show, Hardwick's companion has regularly hauled in big numbers as experts, stars and fans gather to break down and discuss Rick and the gang's weekly exploits. Last week's mysterious "death" saw The Talking Dead bring in its highest-ever numbers, showing that interest in this franchise is as hard to thin as a horde of Atlantan zombies.

Here's what the president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios Charlie Collier had to say about the announcement.

Opening quote
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.
