AMC today announced second-season orders for unscripted series Talking Dead and Comic Book Men.
Talking Dead centers around the network’s hit comic adaptation The Walking Dead, with host Chris Hardwick talking to producers, actors and fans about the latest episode of the horror series. Comic Book Men takes viewers inside Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, the Red Bank, New Jersey, comic store owned by filmmaker Kevin Smith, and offers a look at geek culture. Like their Sunday lead-in The Walking Dead, both shows have been given 16-episode orders.
“Pinch my fat ass, ’cause I must be dreaming!” Smith said in a statement. “A thousand thank you’s wouldn’t cover the gratitude I’m feeling right now. And as you might imagine, everyone at SModcast Pictures is in love with everyone at AMC today! Rest assured, Walt, Bry, Mike, Ming and I are suited up and ready to hit the ice for our second season with Team AMC.”
