AMC keeps 'The Walking Dead' alive for a second season - National The Walking Dead | Examiner.com
Fans of AMC's new zombie TV show, The Walking Dead, will be happy to learn that the network has renewed the show for a second season. This announcement comes just two episodes into the first season of the series, due to astronomical ratings and rave reviews.
When I say "astronomical ratings", I mean The Walking Dead has broken the record for reaching more viewers in the coveted ages 18-49 demographic than any other series premiere in the history of cable television, according to AMC. The show's premiere also broke records in 120 countries across the globe. Not bad for a horror series based on black and white graphic novels.
Charlie Collier, President of AMC said in the official announcement, "The Dead has spread! [...] This reaffirms viewers' hunger for premium television on basic cable. We are so proud to be bringing back The Dead again, across the globe."
The second season will be 13 episodes long, more than twice the length of the first season, and will continue the harrowing tale of life after the zombie apocalypse for a group of survivors outside of Atlanta, Georgia... assuming any of them are left alive after the first season.
We are the walking dead: The Walking Dead is based on the graphic novels by Robert Kirkman. You can watch the show on AMC Sunday nights. For more information, visit the official website of AMC's The Walking Dead.
