It’s Official! The Walking Dead Season 5 Confirmed

The Walking Dead Season 5

Exciting news here. AMC just announced that The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season with Scott Gimple returning as showrunner, along with executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero, and Tom Luse.

I believe this is a first for the series to be renewed so early in a season, which has already set a new record with the premiere of Season 4, delivering 20.2 million viewers, live+3, and 13.2 million adults 18-49, a new record for any non-sports cable telecast.

AMC President Charlie Collier said:

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. 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 4 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.
