The show’s arrival at this point signifies it’s time for an important moment from the comics, one that many fans believed would never come, but I am convinced we will see tonight.

Obviously we’re going to veer sharply into comic spoiler territory here, which I believe will turn into show spoilers soon enough. I do not watch advance screeners, so all of this is my own theories and thoughts, but I think I’m correct regardless. You have been warned.

AMC renews The Walking Dead for a 7th season.

In something that shouldn't come as too much of a surprise (unlike Glenn's maybe death) AMC has renewed The Walking Dead for a 7th season. Here's the full press release about the announcement from AMC.

The October 25th episode of “The Walking Dead” delivered 18.2 million viewers, 12 million adults 18-49 and 11.5 million adults 25-54 in live+3 ratings, which include three days of time-shifted viewing – each growing compared to last season’s corresponding episode #503. Last Sunday’s “Talking Dead” was its highest-rated episode ever that was not a premiere or a finale, delivering 7.3 million viewers, 4.6 million adults 18-49 and 4.7 million adults 25-54 in live+3.

“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,’” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “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.”
