AMC Renews The Walking Dead

Just two episodes into the second season of The Walking Dead, AMC has announced it’s renewing the acclaimed drama for a third.

“Today we are pleased to announce that the ‘dead’ shall live as we proudly renew The Walking Dead for a third season on AMC and, globally, with our terrific partners at Fox International Channels,” AMC President Charlie Collier said in a statement. “We are thankful for everyone’s contribution in front of and behind the camera as we continue to make The Walking Dead a unique television experience. And, we are so proud as it continues to set viewership records around the world.”

Based on the long-running Image comic by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, The Walking Dead attracted a series-high 7.3 million viewers with its second-season premiere. It also delivered 4.2 million viewers in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic, shattering a 10-year-old basic-cable record for a single drama telecast.

The third episode of Season 2, “Save the Last One,” airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.

    good was hoping amc would even after the behind the scenes stupidity with frank darbo and cutting the budget the walking dead would get a  third season which means rick and crew will soon meet the governor who makes the joker look like a boy scout.

    I would love to see the Prison, the Governor (Danny Trejo), and Tyreese (Idris Elba), being introduced in the third season.

    Danny Trejo would kill as the Governor and Idris Elba as Tyreese would be awesome. That would be some damn fine casting.

    I’m hoping Michonne is played by a somewhat unknown actress just to add to the mystery of her character when they first meet her.
