Ahead of “The Walking Dead’s” season premiere this upcoming Sunday, AMC has already announced that the horror drama series will return for an eighth season in late 2017. Season eight will also kick off with the 100th episode of the series.
“Eeny, meeny, miny, more,” said AMC president Charlie Collier in the announcement. “What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott M. Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring ‘The Walking Dead’ to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us.”
In addition to “The Walking Dead’s” renewal, AMC has announced that its companion talk show “The Talking Dead” will also return for another season. The show, hosted by Chris Hardwick, pairs celebrities and “Walking Dead” cast members both past and present for a discussion of that night’s episode, airing right after the new episode of “The Walking Dead.”
“The Walking Dead” debuted on Halloween night, 2010 and has become a ratings juggernaut for AMC, even giving Sunday Night Football a run for its money some weeks.
“The Walking Dead” returns for its seventh season on Sunday, October 23rd picking up right where season six left off when it concluded earlier this year. Airing Sundays at 9 pm ET/PT on AMC, “The Walking Dead” stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Melissa McBride as Carol Peleteir, Steven Yeun as Glenn Rhee, Lauren Cohan as Maggie Green, Danai Gurira as Michonne and more.
