AMC Renews 'The Walking Dead' for a Fifth Season

Considering the fact that AMC had already announced that it was working on a spinoff series to The Walking Dead, no one should've been surprised when the network announced on Tuesday that it had picked up the original Walking Dead for a fifth season.

"We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever: The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season," AMC President Charlie Collier said in a statement. "This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast. Its expanding base of passionate fans has grown every season, most recently — and most notably — with the season four premiere earlier this month, which broke viewership records for the series and became the biggest non-sports telecast in cable history. On behalf of the incredible team on both sides of the camera, thank you to the fans and here's to more Dead.”

Even though the news wasn't a shocker, it's still nice to know that The Walking Dead will be back again next season. After changing showrunners frequently, AMC seems to be sticking with Scott Gimple. Gimple's leadership has thus far delivered a Season 4 that's both suspenseful and engaging. No searches for lost kids. No time spent chatting on a farm. Things are good for the show right now.
