by on Oct.29, 2013, under Television

To no one’s surprise given the stronger-than-ever ratings since the debut of Season 4, AMC announced today that it is renewing its flagship drama The Walking Dead for a fifth season. “This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast.” said AMC President Charlie Collier in the statement. “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.” Also announced is that the team behind it – showrunner Scott Gimple, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd and executive producer/creator Robert Kirkman – will continue with the show as well.
